Are you the kind of person who drives around without any insurance? Hey, I don’t like to pay for something that I can’t see and hopefully will never need either. However, quite often insurance is cost effective and you can actually see what you’re getting. Such is the case with a thread protector for your barrel. Let’s look at this realistically, after handing over hundreds of dollars for that high-end, match-grade barrel, a thread protector is nothing more than very cheap insurance.
No doubt, quality high-end barrels are made of some tough steel but sometimes things just happen. I have a number of shotguns that use screw-in choke tubes and they’re tough too. Guess where those tubes are when they’re not in my hand or the barrel? That’s right, they’re in a protective tube, just in case. Before crap happens to your pistol, do yourself a favor and put on an L2D Combat 1/2x28 Thread Protector.
Granted, there are some plain old ugly caps screwed on some beautiful barrels out there. You don’t want something like that on your gun. Just check out the L2D Combat 1/2x28 Thread Protector. It’s machined from solid stainless steel and far from plain. It has a sleek, sexy profile that transforms the end of your barrel into a statement, it says “don’t hate me cause I’m pretty”. If you run some type of muzzle device and leave it on, then fine. If not, those threads need something to cover them, so cover them with an L2D Combat 1/2x28 Thread Protector or cover the tab for a new barrel.
