I am not an expert at this stuff, but I do know that the tube or extension must be pinned or welded into place that it requires a major effort to remove it.
In my personal experience I prefer a little longer barrel then just the 16 inches required. At least an eighteen or twenty inch barrel makes the gun way more handy to me. I really don't like short barrel (legal) length rifles.
At one time I had thought about having a tube put on a 14" barrel and having it pinned with a tapered pin so that it could be removed if desired, but decided against it.
