I am doing my homework on the M14 I plan to buy. I have seen pics @ SpringfieldArmory.com of the postban M1A. It looks like it has the flash hider that the prebans have without the bayo lug.

Is this true?

Yep. The Scout rifles and the Calif rifles have muzzle brakes.

If anyone has first hand knowldge that would help. But it does look like they have flash hiders.

Yes they have flash hiders. The Scout and Calif models have muzzle brakes.

I have one, it has a real flash hider on it, sans the bayo lug.

Basicly, ince the M14/M1A does not have a pistol grip, it's perfectly legal to put a flash suppressor (w/o bayonet lug) on a post-ban gun except in California.

They became an issue with the BATF with the "sporting points" system, whereby imports are graded with points based on how they do or do not resemble "sporting" firearms. Size, weight, and other features all get points. Apparently, a "military" bipos adds points, or is outright unimportable.
