It is not the same threading. The "barrel" you see on 22lr is really just a fake shroud. The real barrel is a pencil barrel that is centered in the shroud by an O-ring on the flash hider. There are aftermarket adapters to put on the end of the barrel to allow the use of standard AR muzzle threading.
