#1 If you are using a monsterman grip or something equivalent you can't have a flash hider.

I also advise putting away those 30/10 round mags and use factory 10 round only mags.

I suggest getting a thread protector as you are at the mercy of a ignorant cop if you put a muzzle brake and the cop does not know the difference and locks you up because your rifle has a muzzle device on it and the cop is inexperienced in what is a flash hider and what is a muzzle brake!!

If you want a flash hider run a fixed mag build with one of the little things that takes the place of the hold open device as shown below.

IMO this device complies with the need to partly disassemble the rifle to drop the magazine and reload, I'm not a lawyer and this is not legal advise it's just my best guess on what can make the rifle legal

I'm not a lawyer either but I did stay a night at a Holiday Inn. Your best solution, and I am sure many FALaholics will agree, is for you and your loved ones to get out of Kalifornia as quickly and safely as possible. It is NEVER going to get any better for you out there, short of a major environmental/geophysical catastrophe that will allow the survivors to re-write the rules the marxists have forced on you since the marxist take-over of that once great state.

In the meantime, just do what the other posters told you about replacing the flash suppressor with a threaded cap.

Beyond what has been already said above have a look at calguns.net and have a look on their main page for the AW flowchart.

With the fixed mag build using the device I have shown above if you want to use a different build it should give you more law than I can remember at the moment.

Reason being is the laws have changed and are changing month it seems.

The device I have shown makes the AR compliant without monkeying with the mag release FYI.

Running away might not solve the problem, instead just postponing it. They might follow you and then start taking over wherever you go to.
