    Thread for tikka barrel

    What thread do most people opt for when doing a factory tikka barrel in 223. I'm wanting to put a dpt suppressor on it.
    Also I haven't made my mind up about a can or over barrel.

    Thanks in advance

    What is the muzzle diameter? Personally, I would go with the biggest diameter thread that leaves say a 1mm shoulder for the supressor to pull up to. Maybe a 14mm x 1mm if the muzzle is about 16mm. 1/2" unf seems to be the popular fall back though. Also, if you may possibly use the supressor on another rifle, think about that as well.

    For example, my blaser barrels are all 15x1 thread so I can use the same supressor or brake on all barrels if I want

    Good point @The Claw
    The muzzle is just over 15mm according to my cheap tape measure. So barely big enough for 14x1 thread?
    Is there snow at home?

    Was white last night and pretty much gone this morning other than on the hills. It ain't tropical though... Luckily I have a heater in my office!

    I'm guessing by "the big fella" you mean dpt?
    I have come to the conclusion that I'm better to buy straight from them and get them to thread.
    Rather than saving some pennies on second hand. I will save for a bit longer

    Most .22 cals seem to be 1/2x20, so sticking with that would allow the can to be used on any other .22 ish rifles you have or may have. Then you can buy one good one instead of two or more cheaper. Or pocket the cash difference and shout 1/8 of a heli ride for Toby
