I can't find one anywhere. I need an A1 birdcage (or anything else really) threaded in 1/2x28 and has a hole big enough for a 9mm. Most 9mm hiders are 1/2x36.

I've thought about boring out a .223 A1 hider, but if I can find one already made, it would be even better.

Those are 9mm 1/2x28 (not 1/2x36)?
Whatever is short, fat and stubby. I am an idiot and ordered the wrong thread adapter for my suppressor so now I am stuck with a lame adapter so I can use the suppressor. It is going to look

An A1 doesn't look horrible....

Wait, what the hell is this one? Are you able to make a 1/2x36 threaded (for the barrel) to a 1/2x28 (for the suppressor)? How would that even work? It wouldn't fit inside.

That's actually exactly what I was looking for. IM me or e-mail me with payment info. Paypal, MO, etc

See if you can get one of the Noveske krink flash hiders to fit that would kick ass on that rig. OUT. Tuna HERE Piggy

A four prong flash hider would run about $50-$60. Threaded in 1/2X28, 1/2X32, or 1/2X36. I personally like 1/2X28. I think Colt made 1/2X36 for their 9mm so nobody would slap on a .223 flash hider and accidentally try to fire a 9mm through it.

EDT150 (semi-hardened about 32c on the Rockwell Scale, 120,000 PSI)

I spoke to a close friend who is a machinist for most of his life about making flash hiders. His suggestion was to use EDT150. It stress relieved and semi-hardened already.

I asked about heat treatment and his opinion was the metal could be heat treated but the deisgn of the flash hider was more important (bore clearance, length of flutes, width of the flutes). Heat treatment would slow down the erosion process since muzzle blast is abrasive.

I made a flash hider for the HK91/G3 a few years ago and the hider has held up very well.
