    What "size thread" is this ?

    I don't have a tread gauge, so I'll have to use some of you tools to work it out

    Philipo,

    From the measurements shown on your digital calipers I calculate that the thread is imperial and is 5/8 x 24 UNEF which according to Machinery's Screw Thread Book is 0.625" x 24 TPI x 60 degree thread form, Unified National Extra Fine.

    Used as a thread for suppressors and muzzle brakes on barrels with muzzle diameters of 18-22mm.

    What is it on Phil ?

    If it is Yanky it is most likely as TonyT says 5/8 x 24, that is the standard US thread.

    Or you could just take it to a local engineer and get him to run a thread gauage over it to confirm what the other guys have already said. now it is 7 posts long
