Ported barrels are fine in NY. There is no seperate muzzle device.

That in thinking as well, my idea is using a threaded barrel with a muzzle brake tig welded then grind to the same contour as the barrel would have no separate lines between the barrel & the brake, it would look like its one piece, the threaded barrel while still threaded would be impossible to tell without destroying both the barrel & muzzle brake.

I don't think you'll have any luck with that since the ID of the brake is too close to the OD of the barrel which would leave you too thin a section.

You can keep the inside of the barrel from burring while you mill slots in it by filling it with cerromelt or hard solder if you use flood coolant, or you can slug it with 50/50.

I disagree, I tig sheet metal all the time, so putting a small bevel on both pieces weld together then grind the barrel and brake would not be to thin. I have several barrels & brakes will try my idea.

If I understand your question, no, it would not be legal on a semi-automatic rifle with a detachable magazine. A ported would be considered a compensator.

22.

(iv) a second handgrip or a protruding grip that can be held by the
