So. An A2 is 1.75 inches long,...

So. An A2 is 1.75 inches long, and a BF Meyers is 2.75 inches long, so an 18" rifle length with a BF Meyers should be one inch shorter than a 20" rifle length with an A2.

Does that mean you can affix a bayonet to a rifle length 18" barrel with a BF Meyers flash hider, since the bayonet ring rests near the base of the hider on a regular M16?

AR thread?

It would be close to the end of the 249f. Might work.

Correct me if I'm wrong but, the ring is just there to reduce wobble right? As long as it fits over and isn't too loose it should lock right?

Should. You might find this interesting. It's not an 18" but kinda along the same idea.

Yeah, in that case they are bridging a 2 inch difference from gas block to tip rather than a 1 inch difference (including the flash hiders) so I think an unmodified m7 should fit on an 18" with the 249f

The reason why this came up is because I have a heavy 20" Armalite HBAR and I'm considering switching to a ranier arms mountain series 18" to shed a whole pound worth of barrel, get dat polygonal rifling, and maintaining muh rifle length gas.

Still being able to mount a bayonet and having zero muzzle flash would be a good bonus.

The total length should be about 20.25" ish. I think it might work. Good luck.
