Hey @diesel1 would you be able to share any hints and tips on how you made it, especially for the fins on the end of the barrel? Would appreciate it hugely!

You could use a 1/4" slitting saw. Or an angle grinder mounted on a chop saw type of stand. to cut the flutes of the Flash Hider. Edges could be rounded with a Dremel of small hand file. & finished off smoothly.

yeah good call... how long and wide are the flash hider fins?


It's been over 20 years since I worked on these! But as I recall APPROX 4" Long X a Loose slip fit in the mantlet hole diameter!

Fins I would estimate to be APPROX 7-8mm Thick. You would HAVE to gauge it To LOOK right when Placed up against Your Turret Mantlet.

If I were you, I would get up close & personal with the above Picture printed off. & do a Drawing with your own measurement's to LOOK similar to the F/E in the Photo.

In my opinion, this would not be a difficult job. ;) 


YOU would have to do that there. I am unable to help further on this.
