I think I had better buy a thread gauge and verify my barrel threads. I took off an A-1 Flash Hider, but when I tried to screw on the A-2 (thinking-same thread) It was very tight after only a few turns, so I took it off again. I'm using an all DPMS 7.62x39 Flat Top upper and didn't think there would be a problem.:confused:

well this is from the DPMS website.

Online Store — DPMS: AR-15 Rifles, Parts and Accessories.

it doesnt say what thread the 7.62x39 uppers are but i bet if you call them they will tell you.
their rifles now come with an a2 hider so im sure if its a DPMS ar-15 upper that you have that they will be able to get you one. but be sure to call or email them

OOPS! Sorry. :oops:

It is an AR15, DPMS upper and lower in 7.62x39. I had thought the A-1 and A-2 flash hiders would be the same thread. Maybe it's the fact that one fits a 7.62 and the other is 5.56. I'll shoot them an e-mail...though I'm still smarting a little over that $10.00 cleaning mat I bought with my last order that turned out to be a doily.:-x

well at least they can give you what threads it takes. my guess is it will be the same as their ar-10s that way they can use the same breaks and hiders. doesnt really make sense to have two separate threads for guns that use the same caliber bullet of course that is just my guess
