A was previously mentioned. The Post Ban guns were built for the commercial market from 1994 - 2004 When the Brady Bill was in effect for that ten year period. Even some states today require this configuration to comply with their State Law. As stated they had a pinned and brazed Muzzle Break. Flash Hiders could not be installed during the 10 years due to the fact that an AR with a Flash Hider was so much more deadly and unsafe than one with a Muzzle Break! No Bayonet Lug, since there had been an increase in drive by Bayonetting's during that period. And Fixed Stock was required so you could not hide an AR with a collapsible stock under your winter coat! But with all the comments, sounds like you have a nice rifle! Enjoy it and send us some Range Reports next time you are at the Range or shoot it.
However, never try to take the Muzzle Break off of it. If you need to do that simply buy a new upper that is threaded and not pinned an brazed. In fact some companies produced them and they did not even have threads on the barrels under the Muzzle Breaks. And they machined too much metal to even thread the barrel if the Muzzle Break would be removed. By the way nice trigger also! The Rock River 2 Stage National Match Trigger is one of the finest available for the money today. $125 and *Under if you can find a sale at a Gun Show or Dealer.
Enjoy it and send us some pictures and later some Range Reports next time you are at the Range or shoot it.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
