so i have a NY compliant m&p 15, love the gun just was wondering if it was possible ( and legal) to get the barrel threaded for a compensator or muzzle break?
thanks!

Yes but it has to be pinned and no flash hiders. You can also get it shortened but the overall length with pinned comp or break has to be 16".

Sure as long as:

1) The OAL of the barrel + muzzle device is a 16+" (This is NFA, not NY AWB).
2) The muzzle device is a brake or compensator and not a flash hider or not also a flash hider (in the case of certain combo devices like the A2 birdcage).
3) The muzzle device is permanently attached (solder or blind pinned).

If the device is legal according to the NY AWB, and is perm attached, it doesn't matter that there's threading underneath.

Bare threading and/or non-perm attached will get you in trouble (given that you have another one of the evil features).

I would not buy a new barrel, the 15 Sport actually has a very nice barrel and you would have to pay a pretty penny to get another with the same rifleing and I don't think any other than Smith are Melonite coated. Just have a good smith do it, prolly cost you about 100 bucks.

I would check out DaMar Gunsmith's in Weedsport NY......Great guys...!! DaMarGunsmiths ...........And FYI before you think about shortening the barrel to an exact overall length of 16" remember,if anything happens to the crown you are going to be SOL because you won't be able to have it re-crowned,it will put it under the legal length......Just food for thought....
