that's interesting... so they must have the same pitch acme threads, eh? But a cursory look at the two flashiders shows the different "lockup" types. The only way I'd use it is: one shot, hand tighten, one shot, hand tighten, repeat as neccessary... That would kinda defeat the purpose sorta...
Provided the one shot didn't spin off the can or throw it out of alignment and blow your guts halfway downrange. Having a tight lockup is what keeps the can concentric to the bore and keeps baffle strikes from happening.
Simply having the same ACME thread pitch doesn't mean that it's going to be successful in any way, shape, or form, and there's no way I would risk either can putting it on another companies mount. Even if you got the can for free and only paid the tax that's still $200 out of your pocket that you're more than likely throwing away.
