I just bought the SMALLER VORTEX at the MARKET HALL GUN SHOW.

Got it for $15 - I was fired up...

I am putting it on my 11.5

I saw the pics that it really dampens the flash - I am fired up for sure...

I'm fired up too!

Well -

I'm no longer fired up --

It will only screw on about 2 turns - then it stops...
It must be the wrong thread.................................................

If I put on the A1 Flash hider on it - it screws on just fine.

RATS...

pfft!
the flash is part of the fun of a AR pistol, i have a A1 FH on my 7.5
did you check the threads for a metal bur or something?
maybe get a tap and chase the threads?

Correct me if I'm wrong, there's a 1/2 - 28 tpi RH for the AR-15 (.223) and a 1/2 - 36 tpi RH for the 9mm AR-15.

I am going to try it.

Yeah - the hole is not big enough for the 9 mm.

Weel - It might be the 9mm - it is conciberably larger than the .223 hole on my A2 flash hider.

I will porobably trade it on the board to someone
