Why do 9mm AR rifles often have a 1/2×36 TPI thread?
The silencer adapter for 9mm AR that we offer here has a simple mission. Convert the 1/2×36 TPI thread found on most AR-15 pistols and carbines in 9×19. But why do 9mm AR type rifles often have a thread in 1/2×36 TPI and not in 1/2×28 TPI as you would expect?
This is simply because the 1/2×28 TPI thread is the default thread of AR-15 in .223 Remington or 5.56 NATO. It is therefore important to prevent a 9×19 AR owner from screwing a .223 caliber suppressor or flash hider at the end of his weapon. That’s how you avoid stupid accidents. This is why when an AR barrel is in 9 mm caliber, even if its external diameter would have allowed a 1/2×28 TPI, it is better threaded in 1/2×36 TPI. This exotic thread acts like a foolproof device, to avoid confusion between muzzle devices for AR-15.
