    Default Heckler & Koch 416 (H&K) SEMI-AUTO .22 LR barrel length

    The description states the barrel is 16.1"
    I have talked to two people at the same gun shop and get conflicting information.
    Is the barrel measured BEFORE the muzzle break is attached or after.
    I am trying to get on but unfortunately live in NY so the barrel MUST be 16" BEFORE the muzzle break.
    They will weld a thread protector on and change the grip/stock, but if the barrel inst 16" then i have no shot unless someone has a 16" non-threaded barrel or 18" barrel. New to the firearms world so any definitive information would be much appreciated.

    The stock flash hider (vice muzzle brake) is removable so the measurement would be to the end of the threaded part of the barrel (i.e. - does not include any muzzle device in the measurement).

    Also, the actual barrel is covered by a shroud which is held in place by the flash hider...welding on a thread protector may affect the serviceability of your rifle.
