View Full Version : Where to get FAL muzzle threading dies for Izzy HB and more?

December 31, 2008, 03:52
Hi, all.
I have been looking all over the net trying to find a die supply/ machinist supply or some such place that can sell me a 11/16-24RH die (Izzy HB muzzle size) and a 9/16-24RH die (L1A1 muzzle size).

I have tried Brownells and Precise Innovations- respectively, they either do not carry these sizes or are out. Apparently these are uncommon dies as the few machinist supply houses I tried online do not seem to carry them- anybody got any ideas?

thanks in advance, J.D.

Some of the Die/Tap makers will do a custom run for you, but it will be expensive unless you order a minimum number. Perhaps you could do a gruop buy like I did a few months back with the Gas block tap. Ron

Good luck on the Izzy HB muzzle thread die.

The 9/16-24RH die should be available at MSG or Victor. I didn't have any problem finding one when I needed it. It is the LH dies that are harder to find.
