Hypothetical Question. Suppose a buddy of mine wanted to go ahead and thread some barrels on his uppers in anticipation of the AWB expiring. If by some small chance the ban doesn't expire, could he use those threads to affix a muzzle brake if it were soldered on, so he wouldn't have to cut those threads off and recrown his barrels.

IIRC:
Threaded barrels are a no no on a post ban.

Thanks. Thats what I figured. Just not 100% sure. Haven't done me reading on the soldering aspect of it.

I think that it will expire as well but until it does I plan on remaining cautiously optimistic. No harm in that.

My thought was if it is soldered then it is not longer 2 seperate pieces. The barrel and muzzle break become one.

I didn't say he could re-assemble the gun with the threaded upper in the meantime.

Again, it doesn't matter. Ban is dead. any assumptions otherwise are irrational, unfounded, and incorrect.

Threads and flash hiders are banned separately. You cannot have a FH, even if it was pressed or pinned on. You cannot have threads at all, because they fear you could add an evil flash hider. However the ATF has ruled that the threads 'don't exist' if are permanently covered by something legal (cap or brake). They have ruled that permenent means welded, soldered with 1100degree plus sodler, or blind pinned.
