    Barrel shroud

    I am finishing my Norinco 320, and when I replace the barrel with the one offered from Bushmaster, I see they also offer a barrel shroud attached to the muzzle nut. My question is a shroud legal to use?, and if anybody knows if this shroud they offer is supported around the muzzle or if it is just extended from the nut up the barrel and is free floating? If it is just free floating it seams to me that it would get bent in toward the barrel with any use. This board has been so good with information that has been very useful in my work on my UZI. When it is done I will post some pictures with a full description of what was done so as to maybe help another make some hopefully good decisions on theirs.

    Shroud is legal. Shroud has nut attached to it which secures the barel just like the original nut. Shroud is free floating and barrel isn't centered perfect but does not effect firing or looks.

    How's the barrel end look on this thing?

    I want one like this, but solid and was wondering.

    UZI shroud

    Thanks for the information and the nice pic. Is that a Bushmaster shroud?, and a pic of the business end would be great.

    Rather than make a new post, I figured on a BTT from an older one...

    The shrod posted by kanewtervalve, how much is it and where did you get it?

    Also what i've found so far is this for 31.10


    and this for 29.90

    both from http://www.e-gunparts.com/DisplayAd....rSuperSKU=&MC=

    and this for 36.95


    This for 29.95


    I figure I'll take off the foregrip if I got one with one.

    Any thoughts?

    I don't feel like making this a SBR or getting a real can. My price limit for this little project is limited. New babies tend to put a dent in disposable income.

    I've been trying to decide between those myself. I like the way the E&L look way better than the one Numrich sells, but I hate the fact that it attaches via set screw. I like the fact that the Numrich screws on, but it looks so thin, I just don't see the point. There's a member here that makes one out of a type of solid plastic cylinder with a hole bored out which is thick enough, and screws on like the Numrich one, but I really want one made of metal. I'm actually considering buying the E&L & having it welded to a barrel nut.

    if any of you get a shroud, make sure you keep an eye on the barrel itself, trust me, the uzi looks cool in the corner with the "can" on it, but I went to clean it once and pulled of the shroud, surface rust everywhere. Just a little FYI for all.

    Maybe one should run some hi-temp Tetra grease over the barrel. It will take the heat and still protect.

    Would I be correct in assUming that a ventilated shroud would make that less likely? --i.e. since the air has a better avenue of circulating and less chance of humid air laying dormant like in a full shroud.

    What would you choose?

    I WANT ONE for muh Model B!!!!

    I prefer the one that attaches right on with its own barrel nut, and if the foregrip is detachable so much the better!!

    FINALLY shot my .45 carbine & at 25yds the 5 shot grouping was dead center in a police silhouette's head!!!

    Never touched the sights, like she was made for me to shoot!!!!

    Think a shroud would dress her up nicely though & the foregrip might tighten my groupings even more?!!!

    Puh-leez advisde who sells those shrouds, where online ya can find them & lets talk $$$$!!!
