Project M4gery completed

If you recall, I had started my M4gery carbine build. The only sticking point was that the military M4 has a 14.5″ barrel. Completely illegal to build (unless papered as an NFA firearm) since the draconian federal minimum barrel length is 16″.

My good friend Dale Annis in Ellendale, DE has the ability to make the barrel legit.

M4 5

I dropped off the barrel and an extended flash suppressor for Dale to permanently install to ATF specifications.

M4 6

It was an easy job for him to blind pin and weld the longer suppressor in place.

M4 7

M4 8

Dale did a did a nice job reparkerizing the barrel to a uniform finish.


A lousy 1/4″ is the difference between being a felon and a subject! Ludicrous, I know.


I picked up the barrel and brought it home to complete the build.

M4 11

There it is, my semi-auto M4gery. Total cost, under $100.
