Gurus, is it possible to blend a muzzle brake and permanently attach it the barrel to meet minimal length at the same time? I'm going to order an upper from Faxon but I want make sure that I can get this done before ordering an additional 12.5 inch barrel. I figure a 12.5 inch barrel and 4 inch muzzle brake would be pretty fun to shoot, something different than the 16 inch barrel.

you mean so it looks like one piece. Sure but refinishing will be required.

Have the brake permanently attached. blend the weld and then re park the barrel.

Sweet, so it can be done. Thanks guys. I guess the barrel is too to Randall after I get it!

So in what way a 12.5 barrel that looks like 16" shoots any different than a 16 "

I have no idea which is why I'll get one, attach a big brake and I'll let you know :p

less velocity, More flash, Louder not to mention with the brake too, and potentially less accurate.

That said to each his own.

It's going to be a fun barrel for night shoots to create some great balls of fire :eek:

Thats why I put my last sentence in there.

I'm the proud owner of a 9.75" AK 47 pistol with an A2 Flash hider and it's a friggin flame thrower :43::43:

Exactly, I'm glad you understand :43:

Every time I see someone with a flame thrower it makes me want one. Faxon's system allows me to do so by simply swapping the barrel making it that much better :D

I doubt that you would be happy with the appearance of the finish. Parkerizing looks different on welds and dissimilar metals, it wont come out looking seamless. Or at least it's never worked out that way for me.
