Quick question about the flash suppressor...what's the thread on the muzzle? I'm figuring it's standard.

Looking to swap out with a 3-prong if I find one at the gun show tomorrow.

Thanks.

The last I knew they where still the standard 1/2-28 threads. Now you want a real good budget muzzle brake that works really well and gives options on install crush washer or jam nut. I just pick this one up on Amazon and it works great, not sure if you are looking for flash suppression but this tames the AR upper rise recoil to nothing. I am glad I bought this and will purchase more on other builds.

Here is is installed on my new build
here is also a pic at 100 yards with steady rate of fire shot 15 rounds of PMC 55 gr FMJ

Thanks!

There's just something about the 'ol three-pronger that I like.

45shootinfun, thanks for the suggestion, but my intentions are just cosmetic. ��

There's lots of them on e-bay. Bought one a while back. Around $20.00.
Trick is to separate the real from the air soft ones...

Thanks.

Like said Ruger uses standard 1/2 28 for the AR-556, SR-556, Mini 14 and 10/22 threaded barrels. Using standard thread sizes is good. :)
No threads if your gun is "State Compliant" sadly. :mad:
