To make legal length it would have to be perm attached unless he has a registered SBR lower.

You want to be sure the barrel actually is 14.7" because if it's any shorter then the A2 won't be long enough to reach a legal overall 16.01".
I saw BCM has a variant of the A2 that is a standard length and then a longer one as well that seemed pretty decent. Any info on those? Here's a link

The BCM extended A2 flash hider is a slightly longer A2 birdcage and should function about the same. You'll need its 0.2" longer length if your barrel is 14.5" not 14.7.

Here's the barrel I ordered, I misread it. It is a 14.5" not the 14.7"

Just an update, I got email confirmation from BCM that my barrel has shipped today. I am really impressed with how quick they are, especially with what all is going on. My upper is still back ordered though so I don't need a flash hider just quite yet
