Personal preference really.

I like the idea of folding analog sights better than a fixed post site if you are planning on using any type of optics ( scope / heads up ).

With the scope in place, the analog sights fold out of the way. If something happens ( breakage, fogging, dead batteries, whatever ) you pull the scope/sight and flip up the analog sights to get back in the action.

You can try a crush washer first and see if it times correctly. If that doesn't do it, you'll have to use a peel washer(s) to get it aligned properly. This is where I go to play, I'll probably be out there this Sat. AM.

Yeah, +1 on the washer for timing. The problem is, in most states, the "flash suppressor/hider" needs to be staked on ( welded, etc. ) to be legal. So once you get the timing right, you have to be able to permanently adhere it to avoid problems should someone get a little close and suspicious.

Check the laws in your area to make sure...

I think he said he was getting a 16" barrel, so, in GA anyway, he's GTG without staking/soldering it. At least it's threaded already for a suppressor in the future.

You may be right - but I believe the threaded barrel is a point of contention in several states. I am not familiar with the laws in that part of the country, so I throw it out there merely as a caution.

It's better to double check and be safe, rather than sorry....
