Ordering my XCR tomorrow and need it CT legal. Cant have a flash hider so i need a muzzle brake.
I need to know if their muzzle brake post ban compliant or should I get something else and have them install it.

Thanks

It comes down to length requirements, as far as I understand it. Every state's laws are different, though. In NY and NJ they must have permanently attached muzzle breaks - but in CA they don't necessarily have to be permanently attached. The best thing to do is talk to a dealer you know and trust and find out more about your local guns laws and what they mean for your XCR.

RA uses the standard A2 flash hider on all standard configuration rifles, as far as I know. So, if your state law says that you can't have a flash hider, then yes, your rifle will have to be changed from the standard configuration to use a different muzzle device.... better figure out whether it can be threaded on or not while you are at it.

I may be wrong, but I think the muzzle brake is std for 7.62X39. At least my dealer purchased one came that way.

Oops... yes, I was thinking about 5.56 rifles only. I don't know what the other chamberings come with. I guess a 5.56 muzzle device wouldn't work too well with a bigger caliber bullet... heh.
