Here is another one.
This however is a 27-A3 22 caliber. I had a welding/machine shop in town fit the compensator over the barrel and braze it in place. I don't trust Myself brazing aluminum as it get's too close to melting temps. It still has the recessed bore so it looks bigger than 22. Overall barrel length is 16.5 inches.
I also added an M1A1 surplus buttstock and hand made a copy of an original m1a1 horizontal foregrip but made it one inch longer than stock. Maybe should have gone one and a half inches but it looks pretty good. I also replaced the grip mount with a steel one and glass bedded lead weight in the forearm. I JB welded a lead weight in the empy area behind the bolt and put lead washers in the hollow in the buttstock bringing the overall weight up to 9 pounds. It feels alot more convincing than it did before. The only other thing I did was put a heavier hammer spring in it as it was misfiring alot (which is why it was sold to Me I think) but it shoots fine now. I want to do this on a 27A1 if I get some extra cash this year.http://img.villageph...39783/27a33.jpg
