Now that the Assault Weapons ban has expired what would be the best flash suppressor to put on my post ban AR-15? Send it back to Colt?

There's a lot of different flash hiders around, I personally like the standard A2 version.

I just don't know if Colt will fit one to an un-threaded barrel.
I'm sure they'd fit a new post-ban barrel, but that would be costy.

You might contact them and ask about what they can do for you, then go from there.

There are other options, including threading the barrel yourself with a guided tap set.

If you have a ban-era gun, it cannot be an AR-15. Production of the AR-15 ceased in about 1982. You probably have a Match Target.

Consider that in the future, collectors will be looking for those rare ban-era rifles that no one has modified by installing a flash hider!

You know what Judge, I thought of that angle for awhile, maybe I need to rethink it again. Thanks.
