Thread protector for 5/8×24 TPI rifle : a must have for your long gun
Most sporting or hunting rifles have threaded barrel to receive a muzzle device. This allows you to screw a silencer, a flash hider or a muzzle brake on it. But the manufacturer does not always provide something to protect the thread when no device occupies it. That’s why we offer this thread protector for 5/8×24 TPI rifle.
This custom part can also be used to replace a lost or deformed original thread protection. It is indeed very important never to leave a thread “naked” because the slightest shock could put it out of use. It would then become impossible to screw a muzzle device at the end of your long gun.
In fact, a thread protector does not cost much, yet is an insurance against incidents of transport and handling. Don’t skip it !
What weapons is this custom part for?
This protective cap is able to cover 16 mm of thread, or less. It is thus intended for long guns, for which a fairly long thread length is the norm. But please measure the length of thread on your own rifle before placing your order. This is to make sure that your weapon is not an exotic exception.
By the way we talk about thread protector for 5/8×24 TPI rifle. But you will sometimes find this thread referred to as 5/8 UNEF. It is the same. An external diameter of 5/8″ (15.8 mm) and 24 threads per inch.
The 5/8×24 TPI is considered the standard for .30 caliber long guns manufactured in the US. We find it on assault rifles, hunting rifles, long range rifles, sniping rifles… Whether you own a factory threaded Remington 700 in .30-06 SPRG or an AR-10 Armalite, its thread will be the 5/8×24 TPI.

To carry out its mission effectively, a thread protector must be solid. So we work with the steel XC38, also known as C35. It also has the merit of allowing a homogeneous and durable hot bluing.
