    Foresight thread protector and suppressor

    Hi guys

    Is there anyone on here that's ever done anything like this ?

    I'm wanting to suppress one of my rifles ( the last modern one that's not suppressed (excluding my 9.3 ) ) that I will still primarily use without the suppressor and would like to retain the functional front sight.

    Suppressor will be over barrel and absolutely the lightest I can find that suites a big 6.5mm

    The real issue with this arrangement is that I don't want the front sight to index on the fit between thread protector and barrel shoulder.
    As this will ultimately change with time.

    So there would need to be some kind of basic indexing system built into this.
    Ideally no tools required as just something to loose.
    Simplest solution if usually the best solution.

    Then the next question is what is currently the very best lightweight suppressor available in nz excluding the titanium ones that are on another planet cost wise.

    should see if the guy making those slide on ones for 22s could make a slide on for your centre fire then no threading and front sight is still original.
