There are times when you may not want a mule device on your rifle, but it’s always important to keep the threads and crown of your muzzle clean and protected. Anyone who has ever dealt with a fouled-up muzzle will tell you it’s not fun to rethread a barrel or clean up dirty or flattened threads. The Strike Industries Barrel Thread Protector will protect those precious threads and keep them clean without a lot of hassle. The 1/2-28 thread protector features color options so you can even give your rifle a little flare if you like.
