I am in the process of upgrading my A2 Bushmaster post ban with a new, preban barrel.  I just could not bear looking at that Clinton abortion any longer.  So now what can I do with the post ban barrel?  It is a 20" Bushmaster, 1-9 twist, chrome lined.  Can the hive provide some suggestions?
regards,
Ralph

Turn it into a .22lr training rifle.

Thread it and put a flash hider and bayonet lug front sight on it.

Does it shoot well? If yes send it to Adco and have it threaded and start a new build

Put a price on it, maybe someone needs it.

There is nothing wrong with it, I just don't like the way it looks.  A standard A2 looks incomplete without its FH and BL.
So the 20" barrel length includes the threaded area?  I have never actually measured it, I just assumed the post ban barrel were made from regular barrels by cutting off the threads and recrowning.  Apparently that is not the case.

60bucks and you got a nice threaded barrel..Saves money then buying a new one if its running perfectly fine. I had my Banned 20" barrel threaded and it didnt seem to have any effect on its shooting ability from what i seen.

This is a like new condition post ban Bushmaster that I recently picked up at my favorite local pawn shop for $550 OTD.  I didn't like the look of the barrel without the FH either so I brought it to a retired gunsmith buddy of mine and he threaded it for free.  I'm not crazy about the camo stocks but they are starting to grow on me a little.

It's got a .22 conversion kit on it right now and it's reaaaaal quiet when I put my supressor on it.

I have a barrel  at  the smith  right now    being  cut down to  18 inches and threaded.    Piece of cake for a  good smith

Once you get the barrel threaded, you will need to build an new AR on to it.

Are FSBs available loose?  Who can install them

If it bothers you that much I'd send it to ADCO for a threading and A2 flash hider.  If you want a BL, get this: F-marked FSB w/ BL
