With the sunset I want a FH, just like everyone else. I have a Bushmaster carb, 14.5" M4 profile with a Y-Comp rounding it out to the 16".

Would you get a new barrel and have the FH attached to it and then have an extra barrel laying around?

or

Would you have the Y-Comp removed and replaced with the FH(the less expensive option)?

Also, what's the difference between the Phantom 5C1 and 5C2?

Have the Mini-Y removed and the Phantom permanently attached...

I would drill the pin or cut the Y comp off myself and throw on a phantom. If I didn't have the means to silver solder it on, I would take the upper to a shop and have it done for a couple bucks. The rest of the work I would do myself.

5C2 - 5C1 = 1

The difference is 1.

What'd I win, What'd I win?



No really the difference is the 5C2 has the little prongy thingies for jabbing on the end.

Usely the blind pin is located at the bottom 6 o clock position,but on bushmaster y comp, I think it located at the 12 o clock position.

Just dremel till you see pin, get tiny pin out and screw off y comp.

I could be wrong about the y comp, read a post where someone eles has removed their y comp.

The 5c1 has a flat front on it not the points like the 5c2. past that i dont think there is a difference. Unless you have allot or rounds through your barrel or want something different (length material or profile) i would just remover the y and add the phantom.

I already sent my upper off to get it done. When I get it back, it will have Phantom on it.

Thanks for the replies, and what everyone is kind of what I was leaning towards anyways. I don't like the Y-Comp brake at all(loud and it's a flamethrower), and the only reason I was thinking of getting a new barrel is just to have a spare in case. The barrel I have now has barely 500 rounds through it so it has a lot of life left still.

Now, I'm not 100% comfortable with doing the surgery myself, so who do you all recommend? I've looked into adcofirearms, I think it's $80-$90 for them to remove old brake and put on new. Who else has a good reputation for 'smith work?

Kurt's (KKF) has a good rep, and mine are currently being done by Eagle Arms in CO. I'll get mine back later this week, so I'll be posting pics about 'em then.

Good info.. just do it yourself.. Have a shop permanently attach it, that part should be cheap. I'd go with the 5C2..

i have removed my minni-y from my 14.5 not that hard. mine had pins @12 & 6 o'clock and lock- tite on the threads. i just used a dremel to grind down to the pins and got it hot to soften locktite and used a screwdriver in the holes of the brake to remove it. then i put on my kkf brake now i get to hack that off to

loose the y-comp
get a fs phantom

So the two are just as a effective? It's merely a looks difference?

+3 most definetly-specifically, blind pinned and using the model with the slots emited on the bottom, to
prevent kicking up dust.

Could you give me more details on this. I've never seen anything about that mentioned in the KS gun laws.
