Gents,
I''m looking for a quick detach suppressor that can be used on both .223 and .308 HK platforms.
Having difficulty finding a manufactuer that makes a muzzle brake in .223 that is quick attach AND threaded in 15x1.
Lots of flash hiders in 15x1 (gemtech, yankee hill, etc) but I can't seem to find any muzzle brake adapters that aren't 1/2x28.

ANy suggestions?
Thanks

I would contact the manufacturers of the cans. My understanding is that 15X1 is the standard thread for both 7.62 and 5.56 muzzle threads. So a thread mount that is a brake for a 7.62 can should thread onto a 5.56 muzzle. Good luck with your can project.

I'm using an AAC m42k on all my 15x1 HK clones.

I know the 7.62sd and the 7.62sdn6 will work on both the 5.56 flashiders as well as the 7.62.

not sure how they do it, but the 5.56 can will not fit the 7.62 flashider.

I know that you want a brake but I can't think of a single company that makes one for that thread pitch in both 5.56 and 7.62. I would just go with a flash hider mount because then you will have a few different can options to choose from.

ETA: Scott is correct in that 15x1 is the thread pitch for HK but I think it is probably not the biggest seller like 1/2x28 for 5.56 and 5/8x24 for 7.62 so I would guess a lot of manufactures don't make all the mount options for a thread pitch with such a low demand.

I was actually talking to YHM about this the other day. Their catalog shows their QD flash hider in a number of thread pitches (including 15x1), but their QD muzzle break is only listed as 1/2x28. They said that for an extra $45, they will specially thread a muzzle break 15x1.

Yes, Yankee Hill will hook you up. I am currently using a CT-compliant brake/QD mount on my PTR-32 SBR after YHM made it up for me.

Loud bastard on an 8.5" barrel, though.
