I'm seriously considering a DSA Para. I had an interesting idea: Maybe add a suppressor in the future. I want a quick detach system, and was thinking of using the Gem-Tech HVT. Problem is that DSA threads barrels for 9/16 x 24 LH and the Gemtech mount is 5/8 x 24 RH.

The question is, can a DSA barrel be threaded for 5/8" threads? I would prefer a standard, non heavy barrel to keep the weight down, and don't want to hassle with getting a thicker barrel turned down just to preserve a fat muzzle for threading.

Oh, just had a thought: Maybe Gem_tech could custom make some fitting DSA threads?

ETA: One more question: Does DSA permanently attach flash hiders on complete rifles, as it would be a pain in the ass to remove if Gem tech made a mount that fits...

Have a look at this thread:

Look for the Talon Arms reply in the thread - they have a GemTech HVT-based solution.

By the sound of it, they had Gem-Tech make a threaded can, not a threaded bi-lock mount. Maybe if I get real serious I can just call up Gem-Tech and ask. I have also asked a Gem-Tech dealer I know...
