I hope this is the right forum but I was giving it a try. One of the guys on the EE has 14.5" Colt M4 barrel. Does the Machine gun parts law make the mere possition of the bare barrel illegal. The reason I ask was I was going to put a Phantom on it have it permanently attached before installing it on areciever.
While I'm on the topic for information only but is it illegeal to even posses an M-16 bolt carrier?

Thanks

If you have an AR pistol, or stripped AR lower registered as a pistol, then you can have a 14.5" barrel. If all you have is is a rifle or carbine AR lower, then having a 14.5" barrel is "constructive possession" of an illegal NFA device (SBR.) That is on the federal level, as well as the state level.

I have a 14.5” barrel on my M4gry (16” barrels are just not right for an M4). Just make sure you permanently attach a muzzle device that makes it >16”.



One of my latest projects is putting together a AK-104 with a ~12" barrel.

Sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear gets you.

Never the less and not withstanding, it is legal to have a M-16 BC.
