Default M1A Barrel Question

Hey everyone,
I live in Chicago and realized that I could own an M1A as long as the muzzle is not threaded, among other things. Is the muzzle of a standard/loaded/NM threaded? It looks like muzzle brakes, flash hiders etc are clamped on and not screwed onto the barrel.

Remember this when you support the labeling and tracking of people and the complete digital takeover of commerce:

"It causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand of the forehead so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name" Revelations

"So you say your prayers and you thank the lord, for that peace maker in the dresser drawer"

Yes the Flash Hider on the M1-A Loaded Model is threaded. However if you are going to buy one I would contact Springfield Customer Service and ask if they could braze and pin the flash hider on the barrel. The post ban ARs under the past Bradey Bill was brazed and pinned. Which would make yours legal by technical terms.
In addition you could probably check with Hilltop Guns Inc. in Colona IL. Ask for Terry and see what he could do for you regarding the rifle and the securing of the flash hider. Among being a dealer Terry is also a custom rifle builder and one of his specialties is M-14, M1 Garand and AR Rifles. As I said if Springfield will do that for you the dealer could work it out for you on the order.
