My m17s is theraded 1/2-28. Which is standard AR threads. I have an A1 FS on it now. I have one of the original nuts and then the A1. I'm thinking about removing the second nut and just using the FS.

I removed the dumb nuts and just put a standard A1 on there with the lockwasher that was on there. It works perfectly and looks great. About 3 minutes with a pair of pliers and an adjustable wrench.

Yeah I bought an A2 FS on saturday and removed the second nut and installed it. I even got it indexed right. I went witht he A2 because I have a surefire on mine and I was worried the A1 might send too much hot gas right into the lense. The A1 will go on my other AR.

Well were not PERMENTLY attaching them. Were simply replacing the stock BM nuts with a FS. if you properly torque the FS on it will tension the barrel just like the nuts did.

yeah i think barrel tension from a couple of nuts is not something that would require 'a complete redesign' especially when you can tension with the FS and do the same thing. I think it's their way of not getting in trouble for having what amounts to a threaded barrel all through the dark years of the ban.
