My Mega Lower is in the mail, and I am looking at J&T and Model One for finish kits.

I REALLLY like the Commando kits, but can find no more than a vague description.
They seem to have a 16" total permanently attached barrel fixture, with 4 or so inches being a flashsupp or compensator.

Are these pre-ban only?
Anyways...the shorter the better, if its not legal...how short can I make it?

Thanks!

Those are preban barrels since they have a flash hider.

16" is the shortest non-NFA barrel length you can have; shorter must be registered as a SBR under the NFA to be legal. See [url=http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/26/5845.html] 26 USC 5845(a)(3)[/url] for the definition of an NFA SBR and [url=http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/18/921.html]18 USC 921[/url] for the preban restriction on flashhiders. Redbone's right- strictly preban for an otherwise standard AR rifle or carbine. Cheers, Otto

Sleeve the 5.5" to cover the slots from the inside and weld/tack the sleeve at the front. Post Ban legal now. You could see if Kurt would make you a fake flash hider and permanently attach to maintain your legal 16" length. Local shop should be able to make a sleeve, press it into place, and weld.
