Kidd Silencerco threading options



Log in to see fewer ads
Searched and came up with nothing. I recall reading a posting about Kidd doing the Silencerco thread spec for a customer. I called Kidd today and they said they would get back to me tomorrow. Anyone have first hand knowledge regarding this?

My Kidd barrels threads are a perfect fit for my Silencerco Spectre II & Warlock. I did not ask Kidd for any special thread. Just buy the KIdd & shoot silently.

I know the standard threads will work. Already fished those waters. I want the Silencerco spec threads to reap the benefits of the oring setup.

Check out an old post here. I know the first we purchased we told KIDD we did not want the o-ring length.

If this is not what you are looking for sorry.

To keep the host barrel threads clean.

Doesn't having both the can and barrel threads the same length accomplish that?

You would think so, but no it does not.

I've got 7 barrels with the std threads and one can, it's never been a problem for me!

Really, I have six and it is a problem. Lots of different host out there along with lot different cans. I did not post my question to debate this issue.

None issue with proper length threads.

He's talking about this spec. The can has an O-ring in it that the forward smooth section of the barrel engages. The can he has will work on a standard threaded barrel if the length of the thread is .400 or shorter if I remember correctly. If it's any longer the can will bottom on the O-ring before reaching the shoulder. The primary purpose of the O-ring is to keep the can from spinning off when only hand tightened but it does prevent gas leakage. Here is the print file:///C:/Users/Gene/Downloads/Rimfire_O-Ring_Engagement_Thread_Guide.pdf

I asked Kidd maybe 1 1/2 years ago and was informed that they would not thread per silencerco specs.

They got back with me and said not at this time. So nothing has changed. But that's OK as they are still my barrel of choice.

That's not my experience, and I just looked to be sure. The nipple of the SilencerCo threaded muzzle fits completely inside the O-Ring and the inside diameter of the O-Ring seals the threads from the blast.

I almost sold my Kidd barrel because the threads got so dirty with an Element 2. It's not as bad with a Spectre II, I think because the O-Ring seals or almost seals the muzzle threads at the O-Ring shoulder...Tom
