I have been looking for an FS2000. I have found one, the problem is it appears that the original flash hider was removed and the owner installed an aftermarket version. Would this be legal?? I was under the impression that the flash hider on the original FS2000 was pinned so it met length restrictions...Does this appear to be long enough? Sorry for the crappy pic...

From FN's website: Barrel Length: 17.44″

Now, I'm not 100%, but that is including the FN brake...but there is a thread on here where the barrel was measured with the brake off and it came to just over 16".

EDIT: Here it is.

So unless the barrel was cut, or re-threaded (and losing length in the process) it should be fine.

I thought there was a "total" length the rifle had to be...if you remove the longer factory brake, wouldn't it be short?

Overall length on a stock FS is 29.29″. It still depends on if the barrel was cut shorter and rethreaded. Get out your measuring tape. :?

Overall length needs to be 26" or more. That is Federal, state laws may demand more. The overall length of the FS2K is 29.29" (w/factory brake).

Thanks so much, I wish I could find an OD green in original configuration but it is close to impossible at the moment unless you want to sell your first child...
