I'm looking at getting a post-ban M17S from my local shop. I have a questiion regarding barrel length. While I know it is a short gun already. Can the barrel be trimmed 4 in so the overall length of the gun is 26 in and the bbl in17.5 in? Would this still be legal? I think it is 30 in long overall stock. Thanks for your help. Top Secret

I'm from OH. I'm not concerned about the muzzle flash. You can permanently mount a flash suppressor. I'm more concerned about the length and was wondering if it was ok.

Is that your final answer? Bzzzt. I'm sorry. You didn't win the yacht, but we will give you a years supply of Turtle Wax as a consolation prize. [:)] A flash supressor, whether permanently attached or threaded on, is a prohibited assault feature in and of itself.

My apologies, but those sure seem like flash suppressors on those post-ban STG-58s. Or in our PC world do we just call them "Muzzle Breaks"? My understanding is that it it OK if it is permanent. http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?id=26824#lastPost Excuse me *cough* permanently attach a "muzzle break"...

There are lots of muzzle attatchments that LOOK like the original GI issue flash suppressor, but DO NOT reduce flash. From what I've read, here's the general rule for pistol gripped post ban rifles: You call it a muzzle brake. You can call it a compensator. You can call it a snow-cone maker. But if the ATF determines it reduces flash, they'll call it a felony.
