Strike Industries Enhanced AR15 Thread Protector


Whether you like to dress up your AR-15 or leave it bare, they're some things that you must address. I'm talking about your threaded barrel. Just about every AR-15 alive has some sort of muzzle device on it. If yours is pinned and welded then don't worry about this, it's not for you. On the other hand, if you ever take your muzzle device off, you should pay attention.

Which One Would You Rather Ruin?

Compared to the cost of a new barrel, an AR15 Thread Protector is chump change. This Strike Industries thread protector is machined out of 6061 T6 aluminum. Therefore, it's tough enough to serve you well. However, if you cross thread the thing, it will go before the delicate threads on your barrel do. A thread protector is an item that would make sense to have multiples of in your toolbox. You would rest a lot easier knowing your naked, match-grade barrel is wearing an AR15 Thread Protector.

Pick Your Favorite Color

Any time your AR-15 goes out without a muzzle device, people will notice. Strike Industries offers its thread protector in several colors, including their new Titan Gold. So, when you take out a naked barrel, you can still have a little flare. Maybe you just want to shoot a slick barrel for a while. With the Strike Industries AR15 Thread Protector, you can fire away. Just tighten it down by hand and run your drills. This thread protector is made for you to shoot right through it. You know, it's a shame that all threaded barrels don't come with a thread protector. They all need one. Fortunately, now you know how to fix that.
