    Question about factory fs2000 Flash hider

    My rifle came to me already californicated by the dealer. (Bullet button mag lock, and MFI extended muzzle brake to make the rifle 30" oal)

    Soon I will be un-californicating the rifle.
    My dealer gave me the factory flash hider with the rifle. My question is, when I reinstall the factory flash hider, do I need any type of crush washer or timing shims for it, or do I simply left hand screw the factory hider back on, tighten to line up the pin hole and barrel cut, and drive in a new pin. Also I'll need to source a replacement roll pin.

    Thank you in advance sergeant striker for your knowledge on this subject.

    Don't own a FS but blind pinning (which require a welder) maybe necessary depending on the length of the barrel and/or the OAL of the firearm, Sarge would be a good source for this info.

    The barrel is over the minimum length needed to be federally legal. You might want to look at other muzzle brakes for sale on the market.

    Of course I am compensating for something.... If I could kill something at 300 meters with my c*ck I would not need a gun!

    Thank you. Yea I was aware its >16. I had to add a few inches in Ca to get the oal to 30". I actually like the factory brake and plan on going back to it when we move. I know it doesn't have to be pinned and certainly not welded on. Was trying to get info on the type of crush washer used. A gentleman above answered my question with pics but now it's gone for some reason.
    Thanks again for your reply though. I'll order a replacement washer from FN to keep in the parts box with the factory hider, and when I replace it forgo the repin incase I decide to swap it out in the future.

    There is a timing/crush washer used at the barrel crown to time the comp ... the blind pin is just there to secure it in place, since the barrel has no shoulder to tighten up to.
