(Now if I can just dig up some tiger stripes, and a prick-77....)

Tocuin, What is the difference in the CA and a regular flash suppressor? I have a CA also, have not fired it yet. I'm from ARDMORE.PA.

CA vs. GI Flash Supressor

Chief on One,

California has all of those "assault rifle rules" so they don't permit bayonet lugs. Springfield Armory calls the device a muzzle brake / stabilizer. (Politically Correct?)

The CA unit (see attached) has round holes and no bayonet lug. The GI unit has slots and a bayonet lug.

Folks have posted that that are two variants: one original dimensions, and a "match" version that has a larger bore. I would guess that if you want to use the blank firing attachent / blanks, you'd need the regulation size.

Anyway, if you want to use my castle wrench (Hey, 24 bucks is 24 bucks!), I'm just up the Main Line in Malvern.
