Modularness isn't even a word.

Modularity? Yes please. Thanks BigWaylon in facilitating the creation of the third party parts for the Omega. My Omega is still in jail and I wanted to be able to utilize the Saker MAAD trifecta mount on it. With a few interests, the adapter was made..
In addition to the titanium adapter, Ti end caps for 7.62 and 5.56 were also made and also a steel blast shield.

The adapter length is long enough to cover my chopped 2 port brake and essentially acts as a blast shield when going can-less

However I can always screw on the shield

How much was the endcap?
Link Posted: 1/5/2016 7:29:56 PM EST
Can OP or BW IM on how to get the blast shield tube to screw on the ASR mount? I've got the one they offer but I still want a smoother looking one similar to the Surefire.

The blast shield tube I have is made to screw on the ASR mount since it's the same thread pitch as the Ti adapter I have.

Exactly. I already have a spare ASR mount. I'm just wanting the tube to screw on it.

FWIW...somebody contacted him to order some Ti end caps and a Ti DT adapter. I was up there today talking to him about it, as I'd asked for the DT module last week. Probably going to be 3-4 weeks before he can get to them. Aiming for flush mount like the SiCo piece, and mine will have the staggered 6 holes like the end cap. I think that's what the other guy wanted, too.

Whats the total cost for end cap and thread on insert? I guess I could IM you.

I think he said he was using the small USPS flat rate boxes, so everybody should have them before the end of the week. Be interested to here your thoughts.

I know some others have asked for end caps, and at least one emailed him asking about a direct thread adapter. Not sure when that stuff will get done, but I'll post it up when I see it. He's going to try to duplicate the specs of the SiCo direct thread mount so that it's flush with the tube (unlike the one I had made elsewhere). Then he'll work on the YHM version. Once he gets the YHM threads right, it wouldn't take much work to adapt it to other applications (F1 cans, etc).

Cool! Looking forward to getting mine.

With regard to direct thread adapters, what about ones that incorporate higher side walls, kind of like the new ASR adapter, to protect the threads inside the Omega from fouling?

He could also make the exterior of the thread mount (where SilencerCo put wrench flats to help remove adapters that got stuck to the barrel) hex shaped (instead of wrench flats) to allow one to drop a socket in there to remove the thread mount should it stick.

i'd be down for a 5.56 cap when everything gets worked out. if i can, i'd cancel my order with DM if he gets the yhm adapter worked out

I ended up having some issues getting the Saker wrenches to grab them good after I Cerakoted them and got some over spray on the threads. So, I asked him to make me two bottle-opener style wrenches that would engage all three slots at the same time. Since my Ti tube caps are slightly different sized than the SS tube caps, I had him make each one with two different ends so I could use the two wrenches on a single can at the same time. I was expecting some basic wrench, and these are almost works of art with some extra machining in Stainless Steel. (As an added bonus, one end happens to fit the Omega/MAAD adapter perfectly...which is why I may have him mill the same slots on my DT adapter).

I received mine yesterday. Looks great and attached to the Omega and an ASR MAAD mount perfectly.

Would love to get a front end cap with both wrench notches.

It'll just be a matter of adjusting the other threads and/or OD if it doesn't fit.

I was going to ask Scott to check as soon as he has my Hybrid in hand. Or maybe if your ever over there?

I've been wanting a blast shield for for my Saker MAAD mount.

Ordered a Hybrid 9mm end cap and received it today. Fits on the Omega same as Omega end caps.
Link Posted: 1/20/2016 5:59:09 PM EST
Link Posted: 1/20/2016 11:35:42 PM EST
Hmm.

Are the Omega baffles large enough for 9mm to pass through?
Link Posted: 1/21/2016 12:00:39 AM EST
I figured out the Hybrid has the same front cap threads as the Omega. Hybrid anchor?... I didnt want to order a Hybrid ASR mount or Hybrid 1/2 rear if I wont use them. I already have an ASR, 1/2, 5/8 rear Omega/Big Bore mount. I'm hoping the rear of the Hybrid is the same as the Omega. I guess I could just call them. That was my point.
