Hey guys,

Is it unsafe to use a 6.8 SPC Flash hider on a .556 barrel?

Thanks,
Nate

Unsafe? No.

But it won't work as well as a real 5.56 model most likely, and you'll have to deal with a different thread size than the standard 1/2x28 used by 5.56.

You answered my follow up question as well... I figured there would be a TPI difference. Thanks much!

Yep, 6.8 uses the same threading as 7.62.
