Therefore, this kit will work with a Quick Detach setup if you purchase a muzzle break or quick detach muzzle device that adapts to a 1-3/16×24” thread pitch. Our Trinity Trilug works with 3-lug muzzle devices or quick detach muzzle devices setup as 3-Lug Quick Detach Muzzle Breaks and will thread to the 1-3/16×24” adapter mentioned above.
Another option is to find an adapter that translates a 1.375×24 TPI Pitch to the correct outer thread of a threaded muzzle break. This is a muzzle break that has an outer thread so you can screw your solvent trap over the muzzle break directly without removing it (like you have to remove your flash hider with direct thread setups).
Our kits in question have 1.45” Outer Diameters and 1.25” Inner Diameters and a custom Eurometric Thread Pitch.
Therefore, if you are looking for a Booster setup for this kit, you will want to purchase our M34 Booster.
*Remember though, our Boosters are sold only to supplement the cleaning process for those pistols that have issues, such as Glocks Guide Rod Issue, where the Guide Rod hits the base of a directly thread solvent trap. In this case, we recommend our Boosters to extend and add enough space so the guide rod doesn’t hit the base of the solvent trap.
As you jam your cleaning rod through your rifles ejection port area (after applying your chosen cleaning solvent) your rod will go down your barrel and into your solvent trap. You may not want to use all of the storage cups as this will leave a little extra room for the cups to have some motion and for the solvent to collect and flow around the side of the storage cups.
We recommend playing with the amount of cups you use during the cleaning process to get the best and most comfortable setup that works for you.
Besides the fact that one is a tube and storage cup kit and one is an adaptive solvent trap kit, the main difference is that the GR5 Titanium AST Kit has a 1.375×24″ pitch and the 7” GR5 Titanium Tube Kit has a m34x1.25 eurometric pitch. Therefore, the only muzzle extension available for the 7” GR5 Titanium Tube Kit to support the cleaning process (See Homepage Video) of firearms with guide rod issues is the M34 Booster. There’s nothing else available on the market to adapt to this rare eurometric pitch.
Because the 1.57”OD GR5 Titanium AST Kit has a more standardized 1.375×24 TPI|1.375×24” Thread Pitch, there are many items on the market that may adapt to this thread pitch to support the cleaning process. Additionally, the 1.57”OD GR5 Titanium AST Kit can be purchased with the optional 1.375×24”(male) to 1.1875×24”|1-3/16×24”(female) TPI adapter to adapt to muzzle devices such as our ADV1 and ADV2 Booster Kits to support the pistol cleaning process.
For a .223 the 7” titanium tube with stainless cups with 1/2×28 thread mount is a popular option, if you want to do a direct thread setup.
If you want to do a quick detach setup (so you don’t have to remove your flash hider every time you clean), our 1.57”OD Titanium or Aluminum AST (with the TPI adapter | optional) is a good option too. Then you can go with the Trilug muzzle device we offer. You may be interested in sourcing the market for a 3 lug muzzle break for your .223 so you can quick detach easily when you want to trap solvent, without removing your flash hider/muzzle break.
Note: Just make sure, if your hand guard overlaps your flash hider that it has a diameter of at least 1.6” so the solvent trap will fit in without a problem
Example: PSA .223 rifles have an issue with handguard diameter when the handguard overlaps the flash hider is longer than the barrel
Billet is similar to the term Milled, meaning the solvent trap kit is built from a single block of 7075 Aircraft Grade Aluminum. Conversely, if something is not Billet or Milled, then it is most likely Forged.
Forged means that the metals are shaped and fused through a forging process that’s inherently not as sturdy. For those using the solvent traps as misfire risk reduction systems during transport and travel, the Billet feature of this solvent trap is appealing.
T6 6061 Aluminum is not as strong as 7075 Aircraft Grade Aluminum, but the former is much more popular on tube kits and holds it’s own during the cleaning process or during misfire risk reduction uses.
If you are threading Titanium to Aluminum, thread the parts together carefully, otherwise the hardness of the GR5 Titanium parts can cause unnecessary wear and finish removal of the 1.57” Billet Aluminum Adaptive Solvent Trap Kit.
The 1.10″ Stainless Steel Adaptive Solvent Trap Kit is another example of a direct thread only setup – 1.10″ is very small in outer diameter as is and even if there were a thread pitch available that is more standardized, there exist no muzzle devices on the market that will adapt to such a small diameter kit.
Additionally, our 10″ Long by 1.75″ OD Aluminum Tube with 1.25″ID Stainless Steel Cups Kit is another direct thread only setup; it’s Eurometric thread pitch does not allow for aftermarket muzzle devices.
So if these are direct thread only setups, what do you offer that is not?
Our 1.57″OD Billet Aluminum Adaptive Solvent Trap Kit with 60 Degree Adaptive Storage Cups, Our 1.57″OD GR5 Titanium Adaptive Solvent Trap Kit with 60 Degree Adaptive Storage Cups Kit and our Radial-8 Billet Aluminum Adaptive Solvent Trap Kit with 60 Degree Radial Storage Cups Kit all come with 1.375-24 TPI Tube, End Cap and Storage Cup Thread Pitches. This is a standardized thread pitch that adapts to many muzzle devices on the market to support the cleaning process. Furthermore, these kits come with an optional 1.375-24 TPI (Male) to 1.1875-24 TPI (Female) Adapter that allows for further adaptation to devices such as boosters and trilugs, again to support the firearm cleaning process.
Our 7″ Titanium Tube 1.45″OD with 1.25″ID Stainless Steel Storage Cups Kit and our 7″ Aluminum Tube 1.45″OD with 1.25″ID Stainless Steel Storage Cups Kit both come with a M34x1.25 Eurometric pitch. Though these two kits do not adapt to aftermarket muzzle devices, for those looking to clean their pistols and avoid the “Guide Rod Issue” inherent in pistols such as Glocks, Armory Den offers the M34 Booster that will work with these kits.
Plans for the near future?
Armory Den is currently working with its US Manufacturing Partner to develop 5.5″, 7.5″ and 9.5″ B Cell and D Cell Aluminum Tube Kits. These kits will come with a new style stainless steel storage cup and they will be Mil-8635-A Type III Anodized. The B Cell kits will have a 1.1875-24 TPI Thread Pitch and the D Cell Kits will have a 1.375-24 TPI Thread Pitch (which will also work with our 1.375-24 TPI (Male) to 1.1875-24 TPI (Female) Adapter). These should be launched by mid-2021 latest.
