Product Specific Questions
Please note: Armory Den does not claim responsibility for the use of a solvent trap as a misfire risk reduction device and makes no guarantees that risk of injury or property damage will not occur in the event of a misfire. But larger caliber firearms would require stronger metals if used in this capacity.
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 for streamlined cleaning. 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. Our Halo AST Kit is a B Cell Kit, so it’s thread pitch is 1.1875-24 TPI, which doesn’t require a TPI adapter for our Trilug Muzzle Device to adapt.
Disclaimer: Some of our solvent traps, such as our 10″ Aluminum Tube 1.75″OD | 1.50″ID Stainless Steel Cups Kit, 9″ 7075 Aluminum Tube 1.73″OD | 1.375ID D Cell K Cup Kit are direct thread kits only. Their thread pitches are not industry standard, therefore the only way to obtain any aftermarket quick detach items that will work, is to have someone build one for you custom.
Our 7″ Aluminum and Titanium 1.45″OD | 1.25″ ID Stainless Steel Cups Kits are also direct thread only, but due to the demand for cleaning Browning style pistols that run into ‘guide rod issues’, we developed boosters or booster extension muzzle devices for these kits (M34 Booster). It is important to note though, the 1.45″OD Aluminum/Titanium Tube Kits also have a rare non-industry standard thread pitch.
Armory Den is constantly listening to customer feedback and making adjustments accordingly to product lines!
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.
1.57″OD Kits offered by Armory Den have cups, a tube, an end cap and thread mount thread pitches of 1.375-24 TPI and include our TPI adapter that converts this thread into 1.1875-24 TPI. The Halo AST Kit is a B Cell kit with a B Cell Thread Pitch of 1.1875-24 TPI. This thread pitch matches many muzzle devices on the market – therefore you must make sure that the TPI Adapter is removed from the muzzle device prior to installing it onto the Halo Kit for streamlined cleaning.
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 Adaptive Storage Cups, Our 1.57″OD GR5 Titanium Adaptive Solvent Trap Kit with Adaptive Storage Cups Kit and our Radial-8 Billet Aluminum Adaptive Solvent Trap Kit with 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.
1) If you have a guide rod issue on your pistol, you can purchase a 1.57” AST Solvent Trap or a 1.40” Halo AST solvent trap, coupled with an ADV1 or ADV2 with a 13.5x1LH thread pitch
2) You may purchase our Radial-8 kit and the additional 13.5×1 LH thread mount
3) Lastly, you may choose to purchase any kit or titanium kit and select the 1/2×28” thread adapter option before adding it to cart. Then you can source external companies for a 1/2×28” Male to 13.5×1 LH Female thread pitch and this will allow for adaptation for cleaning
For each of the 1.57″OD Adaptive Solvent Trap Kits, whether it be the GR5 Titanium, 304 Stainless Steel, Billet Aluminum or Radial-8 Kit, have a 1.375-24 TPI or Thread Pitch.
This thread pitch does not only apply to the tube and thread mount, but to the sealed end cap and each of the storage cups on each of the aforementioned kits, respectively.
Currently: 6/13/2021: “Armory Den is researching conversion adapter options that would allow the male/female M14x1 LH thread to convert to a male/female 5/8×24” thread for business feasibility. Please remain subscribed to our e-mail list for future product updates.
Our 1.40” Halo Stainless Steel AST Kit comes with an industry standard 1.1875-24 TPI cup | divider and tube thread.
Even though these are industry standard thread pitches, many third party companies will use slightly different thread pitches, but the same companies or competitors of these companies will offer adapters to convert the threads to one of the two industry standard thread pitches mentioned above.
Armory Den, Inc will not be able to go into detail regarding which third-party company products work with our kits. We recommend sourcing adaptability using the industry standard thread pitches mentioned above!
