AR 10 and Fal same barrel thread?

From my reading a DPMS type AR10 has a barrel thread pattern of 1" x 16tpi where it screws into the extension). Isn't this the same as a FAL?

Lots of bolt rifles have 1"-16tpi threads, Winchester, Ruger, Sako, and Tikka to name a few.

I thought that metric FALs used a metric receiver thread, just like their metric 9/16x24LR muzzle thread...

Sorry, I tried to say all that with a straight face...

Still ?
Havent done any personally, but Ive read newer rugers & sako's both have metric threading.
Only metric Ive done was a howa, and it was a struggle for me without the thread dial...

Actually, left hand threading is about the most fun you can have with a lathe that has a threaded on chuck....

You don't have to worry about crashing the shoulder either.

True that...
But trust me, having a chuck try to unscrew itself can produce the same or worse reaction as crashing a shoulder,,,ask me how I know,,,lol,,

I knew a left handed carpenter once that thought he could nail moldings into a corner better than a right handed one. When asked how that could be , he said because God is left handed.
