Default Muzzle Device Thread Adapter



Advertise Here

I decided to try a slip on thread adapter on my Sears (Win 190) .22 cal rifle. I measured the barrel using a crescent wrench and drafting rule. My assumption, if it measures 5/8 that's probably the size.

Bad assumption, a 5/8 adapter won't slip on. I borrowed a micrometer and find the size to be 0.655" so I am going to try a 21/32 drill in the drill press to see if I can salvage the adapter. At $9.96 off ebay it's not worth returning the adapter.

Dude...just buy a rifle with a threaded barrel. The 190 just isn't that good of a gun, for the purpose.

Compared to the cost of the stamp and can...the rifle is the least of it.

Sales right now will buy a threaded 10/22 for $250, and some other (better) guns are less.

I would suggest you look into another 22lr rifle that already sports a threaded muzzle.

The TCR22 in pic below is one of the " better" rifles out there right now.

Essentially a 1022 on steroids with everything standard that a base model 1022 should already have....

Integrated receiver optics rail

Magpull stock w/ sling swivels.

Adjustable iron sights that can be used with a suppressor screwed on.

Oversize cylinder shaped charging handle

A decent trigger

Machined stainless steel bolt assembly.

Threaded muzzle with thread protector cap.

More info here.......

I picked the TCR22 up for 233 bucks out the door on black Friday last, and have seen a few online selling for 250.

It will be very hard to drill a correct hole with the normal drill index type drills. A decimal reamer would be a good choice with a greater chance of success IMHO.

Holding the adapter without distorting it will be a challenge. Glue it into a board to hold it.

Find someone local with a small metal lathe and have them bore it to size.

+1 for get a rifle with a threaded barrel.

It's only an experiment with the current muzzle thread adapter. At $9.96 it's not worth lathe time. I was told on another thread that the Win 190 is a good rifle but I am just playing around with it. If it doesn't work out I will be looking for a good price on a TCR 22 at the next gun show or on-line sales. I'm just entertaining myself in the meantime. If I am successful in getting it installed I will check indexing with a dowel before using any muzzle device.

On my way out of town today my Prism got hard to steer, also saw a red battery icon in the instrument panel. I pulled into a repair shop conveniently within view (that belt only lasted 136,708 mi). They took me right in and the owner was just showing off a magazine ad for the Kimber Pro Carry 1911, saying he had one in 45 cal. We talked about pistols and revolvers then cans and some of the crazy ads like a long muzzle brake that suspiciously looks like the innards of a high priced can. He also told me the gunsmith up the hwy didn't have a lathe.
