So if I have a HK-style flash hider I don't have to crown the barrel after cutting it?Originally posted by rezman
I've got a mini standard that I cut the barrel back on and installed a choate ar style birdcage flash hider on. No problem, just cut behind factory sight, a good quality hacksaw blade makes this much easier, square up the cut with a mill file and mount new sight with the set screw, after you make sure the sight is straight up, drill and install the new roll pin. There were pretty clear instructions with the new flashhider. I like the new carbine length, makes a real handy package with the BC folder. BTW, mines a preban.
PS: you don't even have to recrown if you are installing a muzzle device that will protect the shortened barrel.
