I'm not sure which category this should go in, my apologies!
So I'm at a gun show yesterday, some nice stuff in there, but I didn't really see anything "for me". Then, bam-ba-dam... There's a bayonet marked to be for the M1A, so I went ahead and bought it! Couldn't help myself =).
Now, to the question I've been wondering, is it legal to put a flash suppressor with a bayonet lug on it? And if not (god I hope not), can anyone give me instructions on how I slap it on?
I still want to learn if its legal to have one in Florida before I put it on

You're ok to do it in the gunshine state of Florida. They have no "Assault weapon" ban there.

I don't suppose you got a shiny little link to show me? I do like me a tasty link every now and again.
And also, what would be a decent place to get one?

I just like to double check everything before I do it. Usually...

No worries. It's always the safest bet. I just moved from the Florida/Georgia border. Lots of friends in both states who are gun enthusiasts. Did a lot of shooting in both states. Enjoyed the ability to outfit my ARs any way I saw fit with regard to flash hiders, lugs, grips, stocks, and even bayonets. I never put a bayonet on my M1A though. Too worried I'd end up causing problems with the match barrel.

Got a Standard. I'd have to replace to flash suppresser with a Match flash suppresser, would those be interchangeable you think? That's all I've seen for sale so far, haven't looked far though. I'm eager to slap this sucker on!
