I'm having a custom barrel made for my sniper rifle, and I'm lost as to how I might design it in order to correctly orient flash hiders and whatnot. In the end, it isn't a big deal. Right now I'm looking at symmetrical flash hiders, and I plan on using a mock suppressor often as well- so it honestly won't matter that much...but I'd prefer to do things right. Do flash hiders themselves usually have a method of orientation adjustment? I've never bought one. Thanks for any help or insight. EDIT: If anyone could point me toward a source on threading, that would be great. I want to make sure I understand CW/CCW, if they're supposed to be paired, or anti-paired, the standard on most rifles, etc. etc.
I am going to purchase the Umarex IWI Tavor TAR-21 (Elite Series) and am planning to change a bit externally. The Elite Series version has a 20 in outer barrel that sticks out quite a bit, but allows for a 508 mm inner barrel. I want to keep that inner barrel, but use a shorter outer barrel with a barrel extension. The simple solution would be a 16 in barrel, which would end just outside of the receiver, paired with a short barrel extension (4 or 5 inches). However, looking at the AEG, I have noticed a large opening in the receiver where the outer barrel exits. Can anyone with access to a Umarex (or Elite Force or S&T) Tavor tell me how wide (horizontal diameter--it is an ellipse where the horizontal distance will be the smallest and most limiting) and deep the opening is? I am considering getting a shorter outer barrel (approx. 14 in) and a longer barrel extension (approx. 7 in), such that the barrel extension is recessed in the opening and has the appearance of being an integrally suppressed rifle. Thank you! Edit: Does the Tavor take special outer barrels? A reply from an airsoft shop said that there is no way for me to use any barrel but the two from the different versions of the Tavor.
