Is it possible to have a permanently attached phantom removed and replaced with another suppressor to bring the OA length to 16", or does removal destroy the barrel?

HOW WAS IT "permanently attached"?

Pinned and welded? However the Bushmaster factory would do it!

Exorcism maybe?

Hack Saw; rethread barrel....I'm assuming the pinning of the suppressor onto the barrel goes into the treads so even if you drill the pins out the treads are nolonger useful. I'm not sure about this though. I think Kurt from Kurt Customs can do this for you. But I think he cuts and rethreads the barrel?

Pin and weld........ No problem. You're gonna lose the part anyway. Use a die grinder, cut almost to threads, [b]You'll never see the pins[/b], and unscrew the part in 2 pieces. Here is pic of my Bushmaster 5.5 I cut off, Barrels' threads are perfect, and only (2) 1/16" dimples where Bushmaster bored into threaded area so pins would lock 5.5" in place.

Keep assuming, I did my own, but I did not drill,,, the pins were extremely small after I seen the holes left. The brake/suppressor can be removed and not damage the existing threads.

2 minutes with a lathe does same as what I did with die grinder.

Thanks for the update sbr7_11. This is a task I would have to leave for a gunsmith.
