I have still been searching and found a flash hider that I am very interested in but I am not sure if it would be long enough.
According to my research my PTR 32K PDW actually has a 12.7" long barrel rather than a 12.5" long barrel. However, I am working on the road so I do not currently have access to my HK clones and I am not sure how long the threaded section of the barrel is.
Link to barrel:
The flash hider that I am interested in is the B.E. Meyers 240F-M60 Flash Hider. The length is listed at 4" and this is one of the most effective flash hiders made. It has consistently performed well in DOD testing and is currently being used by our military.
Link to Flash Hider:
So 12.7" barrel + 4" flash hider = 16.7" - 0.5" ? for threads = 16.2" ?
Again my problem is that I do not know the length of the threads on the barrel or the flash hider so I do not know how much length I will lose. Also since the flash hider will be pinned and welded in place I thought that if I needed to I could use a crush washer, barrel jam nut or both to make sure that the overall length is at least 16.1".
I would really love to hear opinions on this especially from anyone that has done something similar or anyone that would be willing to measure the threaded portion of their barrel for me.
I have attached a photo of my PTR 32K PDW and a few photos of the type of collapsible stock that I am going to use once I have permanently attached a flash hider and brought the barrel length to at least 16.1"
Thanks in advance,
