I know that now that the ban has sunset we do not have to weld our brakes on anymore on the legal length barrels, but what about the Amd 65. Since this requires and extra long brake or a barrel extension plus brake to bring it to the legal length, do these still have to be welded on permanetly???? ak'sr4me

Yes, you will have to weld on the extension and break, or a long break because you are adding length to the barrel to bring it to minimum legal length.

(Exception 1) If your barrel extension is long enough to make the barrel legal, then the break would not have to be welded on.

Otherwise you would have to register this rifle as a "short barreled rifle" and pay the upropriate taxes.

Is tapco's extension good enough for the length?

Tapcos extension does not get the barrel to legal limits.With the Amd brake added to the extension it is then 16 inches. So from what I am understanding they still have to be welded or silver soldered even though the ban has sunset. Is this correct?????? ak'sr4me

I got 16 1/4 long with the tapco extension and AMD brake. I assume you can do silver solder also or are you required to weld? If welding, is 4 welds at 90 deg. ok?

Yes 4 welds, or a half-circle weld/solder job is OK in the ATF's eyes.

Or blind-pin it. That would eliminate the need to expose the barrel to welding heat.

I'd weld over the blind pin anyway (or JB weld it) to make it flush and undetectable.

I read somewhere that the blind pin must be covered with a fusion weld.
