    wildcat p8 thread

    im in the process of getting a new rifle and it has a 14x1 thread instead of the 1/2" that my p8 has for my old rifle, i see i can buy a new part for the mod that would use the 14x1 thread but its 60 quid , do you think a gun smith could re thread my original mod or do i have to spend more of my hard earned lol

    1/2 "=12.6mm , should leave enough meat for a recut with a 14mm tap .my wildcat strips down to bits n pieces so a good smith should be able to do the required amount of work without hassle atb

    I was in a similar situation and my local RFD swapped them around for me, he kept the old one. No money changed hands......

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    As stated above, make sure theres enough barrel thickness, plus its much easier the swap the threads on the mod.
