    Default Omega MP5 SD + RCM can issue

    Picture added on Page 2 & 3


    I purchased the first batch of Omega MP5 SD & also RCM SD can at the same time.
    The RCM can finally arrived at my dealer today, and I was excited to try it on.
    Both looked fantastic but something went wrong...

    Unfortunately, the RCM can wouldn't screw into the Omega MP5 SD...
    It seems like the thread pitch is incomparable to each other.
    I let my dealer try it as well, but the SD can wouldn't screw in.
    In addition, the Omega SD's cage is a little bit small w/ RMC can and virtually no room for play.
    It ended up scratching my new RCM can when we attempted to screw the can... probably the cocking handle is touching it.
    What's the thread pitch of RCM SD can & also Omega SD?

    Fairly fracturing indeed... anyone with similar issue w/ current RCM SD can + Omega SD barreled upper?
    I would like to hear from you guys before I contact both vendors... I'm sure this will be resolved.

    I believe that the std. HK thread for their SD suppressors is 18 to 1. Have not gotten a suppressor, yet, to try on my Omega MP5SD purchased as part of the first batch.
    Will be watching this thread to follow the developments.

    This is why you should have bought both from TPM......

    Ah just kidding. But seriously, I learned my lesson about this kind of stuff when I tried building a Mark White 10/22 pocket rifle from all custom parts. Rail top receiver and bolt from one supplier, custom trigger group from another, (and it wouldn't even fit in a buddy's factory 10/22) I won't name the guilty parties. There might have been a couple pins were actually Ruger. You can probably guess how things turned out.

    That's right, all those parts didn't fit together, and are sitting in a box.......

    My thought exactly... otherwise I wouldn't have brought them.

    Default Omega MP5 SD + RCM can issue

    The RCM can is also 18x1mm RH and the issue is with that Omega SD. That is if the charging handle wasn't cut enough to fit the can. Also make sure your charging handle is cocked back before you screw on the Can.

    The RCM can slides in no problem.
    It just sits on the top of barrel and wouldn't screw in.

    Was the charging handle forward or back when you tried it? It makes a difference when you screw the can on.

    I thought Omega used HKparts SD barrel according to the Omega SD spec.
