    I have an old post-ban 20" with a muzzle brake. I just found an old clamp on style bayonet lug. If I use it will it stay in place or move forward from shooting it? Thought someone might have used one in the past. Thanks

    It was more for looks and will scratch your barrel, without a flach hider you have no front support and why would you need it anyway?

    I installed one for a friend some years ago, never did understand why he wanted one.

    Anyrate, get the .750" diamer one for a standard 20" barrel.
    Liberally coat the inside surface area of the adapter, that will contact the barrel,
    with red Locktite gel. This will act like a bedding compound, increasing the adapter's ability
    to get a grip to the barrel. And YES, use RED, it will hold up to the barrel's heat build up.

    Keep the Locktite off the hardware, remove excess gel with a cloth & toothpick.
    Wait 4 hours before shooting.

    Removal will be easy, no marks or scoring of the barrel.

    I do have a bipod that clamps to the bayonet lug. I had the lug years ago and just happened to find it again. Just something to do.

    Makes sense,........maybe that's what Harry wanted one mounted for.
    Anyrate,........that will work. I think Brownells and Midway USA have them
