Threaded Gas Lock for Springfield Armory SOCOM-16 with 5/8x24 threads
The SOCOM-16 gas lock made by Smith Enterprise Inc is a drop-in replacement for the factory gas lock on the SOCOM 16 rifle. It includes a dovetail front sight base and is threaded with 5/8x24 RH threads on the muzzle end for the attachment of various aftermarket flash hiders and muzzle brakes. Allows for use of the wide variety of 7.62mm muzzle attachments on the market instead of being stuck with the one piece factory muzzle brake/gas lock. This part is billet machined from 8620 of stressproof steel by SEI which is machined to exacting tolerances and then heat treated for durability under extreme use. It has a mil-spec parkarized finish.
The front sight base on this gas lock is higher than on the factory SOCOM 16 gas lock, which allows the use of standard M1A and M14 front sights to include standard mil-spec sights, night sights and National Match front sights. Factory XS sights that come on the SOCOM-16 are too tall for use with this front sight base and will cause your rounds to impact low. The 5/8x24 RH thread pattern on the muzzle end allows the fitting of a very variety of high quality after market muzzle attachments to your SOCOM-16 such as muzzle brakes, flash suppressors and sound suppressors. Check out our muzzle brake kits using this threaded gas lock. Also, works very well with the SEI SOCOM-16 gas plug. If you desire to use a suppressor you will need the SOCOM-16 Extension which puts the threads forward of the gas plug for sufficient clearance.
This part is machined to exacting tolerances in order to fit very tightly and securely on your SOCOM-16 for the ultimate rock solid assembly. Thread length is .735.
Allows mounting of standard height M14 and M1A front sights including National Match and Tritium sights
