    358 Ruger American

    The pics look like it has a threaded barrel. But I cannot find any specifics. I do see it listed as a 1:12 twist

    Any one have one? Can you confirm threading of the barrel and its pitch?

    These are the Grice guns Im questioning.

    If you are referring to the ruger american rifle in 358 winchester it is an 11/16 thread. I'll try to verify the pitch but I had to purchase an adapter to use my 5/8 thread suppressor for subsonic

    Well, sorry I cant verify pitch ar the moment. my box and instruction manual/ spec sheet got blown away, I think. If there is any engraving on the adapter, I'll post what I find.

    Well, 11/16 is as close as I can get ya. There are no markings on my adapter. And this is a Grice 2019 special run.

    THANK YOU. ILL BET ITS. Same a 450 then 11/16x24.

    I have been instaling linear compensators on every barrel thats threaded & I love them!! Removes that snap/concussive Blast seems silly but moves sound forward better than nothing on muzzle.

    Joe Bob outfitters sells them and ships quick.


    There is a number of versions with “magnums” added this year. I have all of them now. Theyall work very well even littlest. But bigger makes bigger difference. XL Slim is a favorite. The new Magnum is nice too. Only have the smaller size of that

    Brass is easy. Just FL size some 308 brass with a tapered expander. I purchased 500 starline on sale at Midway quite some time ago when they were clearancing some inventory and recently bought 200 Winchester brand cases. I'm bad about buying brass when it's cheap/reasonable.
