Who makes these? I have a past ban style barrel and want a flash hider, but get teary eyed at the thought of my baby being away from me....any suggestions?

Suck it up and thread it. There are very few options out there and none of them are any good. Send it to ADCO and you'll have it back in a week.

Definately thread it....ADCO has a excellent turnaround time.

I had a pin on brake on my carbine. Shot a few hundred rounds of Wolf 55 grain through it jsut fine, shot a few dozen rounds of 62 grain and the damn thing went down range gauging my bbl in the process! For my next rifle I got a pre ban bbl shaved the ears off the bayonet lug and perm attached a cav comp and now I couldn't be happier.

defintely thread it, and also it'd be a good time to just swap out the barrel if you're missing the bayonet lug too. Here's a motiviational shot :

Send your barrel to ADCO and have it threaded. Do it right or you will be sorry IMO.

+10 for threading it, Unless you want to launch it downrange.

- Other violations are ungraded misdemeanors and start at 15 days and go up to 1 year in jail + $1,000 criminal fine + $10,000 civil fine.
- Note: As of 2005, civil penalties for possession of an assault weapon have gone up to $25,000. In addition, if you are found with one assault weapon, all other guns you lawfully own are subject to seizure by the NYPD.


Just sell the upper quick or buy a pre-ban lower. Is it worth the risk to become someones bitch to have "evil features"?

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but are we not in the era of "no-ban" where the distinction between pre-ban and post-ban is moot, and it only makes a difference where local laws are more stringent than federal law?

Im pretty sure that on longisland you only can have pre-ban features if you have a lower that once was/still is assembled into a legit. rifle before the ban.

New Question: What if i "chopped" off the bayo lug and permanently attached the flash-hider to the threaded barrel?

It would need to be a muzzle brake not a FH and chop of the lug, then you have a "post-ban" upper. Plus you need a fixed stock on your lower.

Do you need to swap out the barrel to get a bayonet lug or just the front sight?

Thats probably what i will do then, because i already have a fixed stock, and removing the lug should be simple, butttt does the vortex count as a muzzle-break? Because i saw this on http://www.gunaccessories.com/ -Vortex-" Can legally be installed on any pre ban gun with a pistol grip or post ban gun that has a straight stock and no bayonet lug"

Hey to those who gave bona fide input in here regarding non threaded FH's THANKS... I did not consider the chance of it departing my muzzle as was previously stated.

To the gentleman in NY with the Pre/Post issues, thank you for hi jacking my thread. If you would like I am sure there are pleanty of people in here who could teach you how to click "NEW TOPIC" and start your own thread. Please be condisderate of others' posts when you have questions of your own that are off the posted topic. The legality of a preban upper on a bost ban lower in NY does not even fit the catagory of threaded or pinned flash hider and who manfactures aftermarket slip on FH's.

You hereby stand corrected.

Imagine New York in a time warp back to 1995, thats their AR laws.
