Depends on how the current suppressor is attached. If it is pinned or welded, it can become a bit of a project, if not it's a very simple procedure. Whatta Hobby!I have watched a few videos and it looks easy enough. I am going to buy my first M14/M1A. The one I am currently bidding on does not have the bayo lug. I want to remedy that. Is it really just as easy as I am watching these guys do it? Thanks!
Billy, is that your only priority for an M14 style rifle....bayonet lug?
If you replace it I assume you want a USGI flash hider. Do you know the difference between a commercial and USGI FH?
Bidding on one already....t
The primary difference would be the cost. 🤪
As KurtC has said elsewhere on this forum: You're primarily paying for a hole. If you're getting it national match reamed (which most commercials are close to by default anyway) you are buying a bigger hole. In this case, you want a hole that allows you to connect to a bayonet.
I dunno, but this just doesn't seem like a necessary place to go GI or bust unless you are a collector trying to make some sort of a period piece build. Spend the extra money elsewhere.
I made my own wrench by grinding down and heat treating a welding clamp.With the proper tools, it is easy.
If the rifle is more than 10 years old, the castle nut can be stubborn.
The cheap pliers are good for a couple of uses. If you plan on having several rifles, get the USGI.
I don't see a flash hider. I see a muzzle brake. Without flash hiderThese are some parts that will be coming with a M14 that I bid on. Up in the right side is an extra flash hider which looks like has a bayo lug. I don’t believe it’s USGI? Also, youuys maybe able to indetify the extras he has there. Rifle supposedly has less than 50 rounds. Looks unused to me. Where he mentions two big holes I was asking was there a tool kit. There is also other extras not pictured. View attachment 505004
yeah, it’s the SAI brake that does not have a bayo lug. That dovetail is for the site, as the brake is upside down.I don't see a flash hider. I see a muzzle brake. Without flash hider
