flash hider removal
 
3 Attachment(s)
The legality of my new toy seems to be questionable. I'm considering removing the flash hider and maybe a couple extra weight adding and useless parts (also in pick).
So is it gonna be a nightmare to remove? Any reason I shouldn't?

I've consulted with a few very knowledgeable guys and the consensus is that the weapon is "grandfathered but... "
I figure if I don't need the flash hider its less weight and oal. I contemplating cutting the barrel back and recrowning anyway.

The reason you shouldn't is because the flash hider and G/L on

that model also act as a counterweight to recoil. While

the rifle seems top-heavy during carry, it's graceful as a swan

when you're trying to stay on target, for semi fire.
