Hello all, stuipd question on the short combo. device. Is it a left hand thread or right hand thread? I purchased one, but it will no go on my Belguim FAL. I aslo bought the long flash hidder and it works fine! Any help please!

Am i correct on this. the short combo is metric and the long f/h is inch right guys? So you have one with right hand and one with left hand threads

Both the combo device and the "Browning" long FHs can be found in either RH or LH 9/16x24 threads. military barrels are usually LH , the commercial type 3s ( for example ) are commonly RH. Also, the brownings will not fit if the barrel has the shoulder a couple of inches back from the muzzle, combos will fit.

Hello

There are 2 models of the Short Flashider :

Right Hand Model :
One with the Thread to the Right , to be used with a Washer and a 2mm dia pin to be located across the external diameter .

Left Hand Model :
One with a thread to the left which locates automatically the locking groove in the correct position. Washer is not necessary <- ( Sometimes ) :)
