My Colt post ban does not have any type of break. I have not seen any new Colts with factory muzzle breaks.

The LEO Colt uses a flash sup/ A2 birdcage style which would not be legal to use on a civilian postban weapon.

No, if you get a brake from Colt it will look nothing like the one in the picture above. In fact, as someone as already stated, the pic above isnt a muzzle brake at all, its a standard A2 flash supressor.

I dont have a pic of the newer Colt brake, but I have seen them plenty. Sorta big and ugly (most brakes are IMO) but the good news it it wont take much effot to take it off if you dont like it. I'm sure someone with one of the new Colt M4gery postbans will post a pic soon.

Go to the Colt forum. Look for the post about the 6400. I think it reads,"questions about the MT6400 M4" or something close. There is a picture there on the 2nd page.

My friend has a post band colt that he brought new and it has a muzzle brake just like the one above on it.

One of three things is likely going on with your friends upper:

One, it has a look alike brake on it. There are several very well made post ban legal muzzle brakes available that look very much like the A2 flash suppressor. They do nothing al all to reduce flash, but look nice.

Two, Rock River and Knights sells barrels with comletely non-functional press on flash hiders. These press ons go over the 16" barrels. Because they go over the barrel, the slots are not exposed and they do not work as suppressors. They are A2 suppressors, look great, but do not work. If you are sure it is a Colt gun with a Colt barrel, this is unlikely in your friends situation.

Three, he has a real A2 flash suppressor on his gun. If he is elligable and has a govt/LEO only marked postban gun, no problem and he is fine. Govt/LEO only marked guns overrides the pre/post ban rules. If he is not eilligible to have the LEO gun, and has a regular commercial brand post ban gun with the real deal A2 flash suppressor pictured above, it is a federal offence.

speaking of that, I am looking to do something with the mini-Y on my Bushmaster M4A2. Which aftermarket muzzle brakes does the group recommend as a replacement?

KKF A3 'Tac' brake for 14.5" barrels - the A2 type for all others.
