    T8 Moderator Question...

    This may be a very silly question, how can I tell what thread size my T8 is? Its on a Tikka T3 so I would assume M14, but the gun had a previous owner so I don't know if it is factory threaded?

    are the threads blued in any way?

    It usually states on the nylon bush at the rear of the moderator, ie 1/2 or 5/8 etc.

    Or at least thats the case on the past 4 T8's ive owned any way.
    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion... it's just that yours is stupid!!

    At the base it says it says T8, AU, F, 13? The threads are stainless as it's the stainless barrel.

    have you a pair of verniers?

    measure the outer of the threads on the rifle. 14mm is 14x1. 1/2 unf will be 12.7mm

    You need to measure as they have changed the marking system frequently on T8's

    Usually F indicates a 1/2" UNF no spigot thread

    Thanks all for your help, turns out it is 1/2" unf. And now for the choice of new mod...

    Never assume, get it measured.
