    The upper I'm looking at is only offered in mid-length on a 14.5". I'm also looking at the 11.5" and 7.5" versions, but the ATF paperwork looks like a pain.

    The ATF paperwork is easy, it is the $200 tax that sucks.

    I thought you had to engrave your lower with your name and city/state after you get it SBR approved?

    And the fingerprints and CLEO signature seem like a pain

    If you do an SBR, just form a Trust. No prints, photos or CLEO signature that way. Just engraving the Trust name and $200.

    Please make sure you get a flash hider that adds at least 1.5" to the barrel length. You can't permanently attach a standard A2 birdcage and be legal.

    Yeah, I was thinking of one of the threaded AAC Blackouts.

    Do you think the Brakeout or Blackout is better for suppressed fire?

    The M4-2000 is definitely worth the extra $$. Everyone I know personally that has the 1K has buyer's remorse for not getting the 2k.

    Engraving costs $10-$20. You can get it done in OKC. I have never used a trust, I have always gone the individual route. I drop my papers at the police station, run a few errands (go to Walgreens for my photos) then come back and pick them up and get my prints done at the same time. Total time is maybe 15 minutes. I don't see the hastle. The CCW paperwork was harder.

    I just swapped my Blackout for a Brakeout. The Brakeout will extend the life of your can if you use it on a short barrel.

    Will a brakeout be beneficial to a can's life on a 14.5" barrel?

    How does owning a SBR work with moving states every couple of years (PCSing)? Do you have to get it re-engraved or something?
