Armory Den’s Top 5 Selections in 1/2×28 Thread Protectors
Firearms are dangerous tools, no doubt, but it’s still important to remember that they have delicate parts that need protection. These delicate parts can be scratched or damaged during the use, transportation, or storage of the firearm, hence the need for adequate protection.
One delicate part that needs adequate protection is the threaded barrel of a firearm. Sometimes, this threaded barrel is usually protected by the attachment of muzzle adapters or flash devices. However, when such devices are unavailable, the need for a thread protector becomes even more paramount.
Here, we’ll look at the top 5 selections in Armory Den’s 1/2×28 thread protectors and the various features that distinguish each of the different thread protectors. But before we get into that, here’s an overview of Armory Den’s thread protector to get you up to speed.
