    AR15 build question

    Well I am ordering the last few parts for an ar15 build I am doing and I have hit a question... I ordered an AR performance barrel that has a 5/8 x 24 muzzle device thread pattern. when I look up muzzle devices for that thread pitch it is for larger than 5.56 calibers. any suggestions? should I just rock a .300 device? will it still preform as desired? any insight will be helpful.

    are you looking to screw a suppressor onto it? If yes then a 30 cal suppressor will be just fine and you can use it on multiple hosts if you have other 30 cal weapons. For a muzzle break or flash hider with the 5/8 thread pitch you will be fine, can't speak to if they work as effectively as a dedicated 223 device but difference should be negligible. I believe AR Performance Barrels sells muzzle devices for that threading so you could just go that route also.

    I contacted ar perform and and asked them and he said to use a .30 device. And the difference is so little it isn't worth the time to track down or have a 5.56 one made. He even said the .30 cans work good on the 5.56 barrels.
