NJ Legal Muzzle Devices to Add to 14.5" Barrel

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for suggestions on a NJ legal muzzle device that can be pinned and welded to a 14.5" barrel (1/2-28 TPI) to get to 16+ inches. I'm leaning towards a KVP or something along the lines of a linear comp vs. a brake. Let me know what you guys have experience with and recommend. Also, it is helpful if you know for sure it'll add the necessary length to reach 16 inches, but I appreciate any suggestions. I can always do math or hound the manufacturer to find out.

Also, a second question I'm sure some of you here will be able to answer. I've seen some muzzle devices that are titanium. Can a typical gunsmith weld a titanium device to a steel barrel? I know very little about welding, but it seems like that might be more challenging if not something that can't be done easily. It is however something I might consider to keep the weight at the end of the muzzle down if it's an option.

This is what I used... perfect for 14.5 build

Thanks. I've looked at that one too. I've seen this setup too, which is getting pricey.

Actually, this is the one I saw, which isn't nearly as hard on the wallet:

I have one on my 14.5..can't recall the model..i know no help...ill try to recall...what i do know...is that one i did get was undersized and would not make the plus 16..

 

The lil bit of weight you think you might have is very negligle....  stick with steel..imo

My 14.5" Midlength has a Spikes Dynacomp pinned on. It's spec'd so that it will meet the 16" minimum when pinned on a 14.5" barrel.

There's also a KAK Flash Can that will meet the minimum too.

@Zeke & @fishnut Thanks guys, do you mind posting a link to the BCM and SureFires  you used?

@JT Custom Guns I've seen you referenced on here multiple times for quality gunsmithing. I may have a job for you soon! I have a barrel on order, just need to decide what to weld to the end and order that too.

Thanks guys.

Does anyone know if the KVP standard linear comp is long enough to make a 14.5" barrel a legal 16"?

Or if I go KVP do I need to go magnum 3.25" (the obvious "safe" answer).

The standard KVP is 2 1/8". Doing the math and assuming .625" subtracted for the threading, that puts it right at 16". Pushing it pretty close it seems.

Just wondering if anyone's built a rifle with this one and measured.
