How does this BFA differ from a standard one?* And why would you need a different BFA if a UGL is fitted on your weapon?
And should this be on sale on ebay?
*Don't reply 'because it says UGL and not IW on it'
It probably shouldn't be for sale, given the number of posters the MOD has put out recently. If I recall correctly there are versions to fit the LSW (do they even exist anymore) the rifle and the UGL due to clearance issues.

The tube is a bullet trap designed to capture up to three live rounds accidentally fired through the Rifle/Carbine/LSW. There are different tubes for the Rifle, Carbine and LSW. There are four different BFAs. They are marked on the bullet trap with the appropriate weapon type. The correct BFA must be used or stoppages will occur.
It exists. The flash hider on the LSW is a different shape. Hence its own BFA.
But is the flash hider on an IW different because it has a UGL fitted?
