    you should've just gotten it without the brake. there's not much recoil to brake off.

    and did you get RRA to chrome line the bore and chamber?

    looks badass. don't worry about footratfunkloser, he doesn't know what he's talking about. let him keep his glock and be happy making fun of all other firearms.

    i'm not making fun of shit. i made fun of YOU, and your "all glocks do is blow up" comment, but since i won't own a glock until october 17, i'm going to stick to my bushmaster. i never said RRA was a bad choice, but i believe i did recommend going with a colt, DPMS, or Bushmaster barrel, because they're the only ones made of 4150 barrel steel, and chrome lined automatically. you can get RRA to chrome line a barrel for an extra $50, but you're still stuck with a 4140 steel barrel. it's not the same, not as strong, and not as resistant to the stresses of heat and weight.

    I'm gonna put a brake on the AR I'm building just to act as a flash-hider. Nightshooting + AR = say bye bye to your night vision

    The barrel is chrome moly, If I want to upgrade I can get the stainless steel on it.

    chrome-moly isn't chrome lined. not the same thing. and i don't think RRA will chrome line a stainless barrel. and stainless barrels are heavy as balls.

    you're on the right track getting an AR, though. i'm not going to pick on you too much, because you at least did that right. and RRA uses a .223 Wylde chamber, so you can use 5.56 in it. but, you're going to have a bitch cleaning your barrel and chamber, and it won't last nearly as long as a chrome-lined one. the advantage you have is an ever-so-slight accuracy increase without the chrome lining.

    also, brakes do not decrease muzzle flash. by law, they CAN'T, or they'd be flash hiders, and illegal to put on a postban rifle. if the rifle has nothing already on it, just leave it until the ban sunsets, so you don't have to pay for the brake, then pay for the pinning and welding of it on there, then the grinding and removal of it, then the new flash hider and its installation. if it has anything on it now, i wouldn't think you'd be putting anything else on it.
