Default Barrel nut for dpms/fulton 308 upper

I have a armalite specific barrel and freefloat handguard. I want to put it on a dpms upper. Where can I find a barrel nut with the threadpitch to match dpms/fulton upper?

From the maker of the freefloat handguard.
Sounds like you ordered the wrong one.

I got the barrel and handguard on here. The guy didnt know what platform it was for. Good news is the barrel works just need a shorter gas tube. I see the same hanguard on the armalite website. This is the carbine length, I have the rifle length. Anybody know the maker ?

That's an armalite handguard.
There are no DPMS barrel nuts.
IF you get lucky, you might find a KAC that would work.
You would have to get REALLY lucky though.

I would start looking for another handguard system that's sold for the DPMS.

Not much difference in pitch. I've rethreaded a bunch of Armalites to fit DPMS.

Seem to work just fine however you will lose some anodizing where the pitch changes on the inside of the nut. But it's still strong and and draws up just fine.

Same major diameter.
If I remember right, it's 16tpi and 18tpi.
I don't remember which was which though.

You have more patience than I do.
