View Full Version : Barrel threads

What die do you use to chase the barrel threads at the receiver end:confused:

Clean them up with a "thread file". Each one has 8 thread pitches on it and they are priced right. Useful for MANY things.

A die that size is not a cheap thing.... 1" x 12 tpi I think?

I believe its 1/16.

I think it's 1 " with 16 threads per inch. I've been looking for one. MSC had one for about $30. I need one too.
I think a search on 'thread' or '16 TPI' or 'Izzy' or something like that might get lots of hits.

Yep, 1x16tpi rh . Just did an Izzy HB. and working on extending the treads for a breech nut. !!!
