    Waitaki Supressor adaptor ?

    Any adaptor available so I can put a Suppressor with a 5/8x24 thread on a 22lr barrel ?

    Im pretty sure they'd mentioned they had them on the shelf ready made a while back? Could be wrong? Other wise im sure they'd make one up without too much issue. There suppressors rock!

    I doubt the barrel would be of large enough diameter to get a decent shoulder with a 5/8 thread. When I did my 303 barrel I went with a 14mm thread. I cant remember exactly but think it was maybe 18mm, even less?
    Only 1mm shoulder to bite on with a 5/8-16mm thread. I wasn't happy with that and 1/2nf wouldn't leave much meat around a 303 bore so 14mm it became
    Sooo unless its a nice fat target barrel he needs an adapter.
    I would also suggest a rethread is a bit more expensive than an adapter, plus you can do it yourself.

    Just buy a cheap spartan suppressor. They're 100 bucks. 1/2*20 threaded too

    This is relevent to my interests, As I now have 2 spare 5/8x24 cans. Would be easier and more cost effective to just get a thread adapter fitted than go through the hassle of sending the rifle away or the cost of buying a new suppressor

    I have a 1/2x24 to 5/8x28 thread adapter, ended up getting it though Brownells but might have a few issue at the moment.
