"TPI" is just how many threads per inch, or the "thread pitch" needed. I don't recall right off what the "UN" in "UNEF" stands for, but it not only states "extra fine" but the form of the threads (square, round, 45┬║ angle, etc.) as well.

UNEF=Unified Extra Fine Thread Series
UNF=Unified Fine Thread Series

Is the standard AR15 flash hider UNEF or UNF threaded?

Thanks,
