I have an SU16A with the B model sights. The muzzle blast from the A Model without a flash hider/flash suppressor is quite impressive. I have been considering options for one of these but there doesn't seem to be a lot of space past the front sight to mount one. I have seen photos on this forum with flash hider mounted and the front sight in place. I have read the C model barrel is threaded (1/2 x 28) for the standard M16/M4 flash hider/flash suppressor. Can the A Model barrel be threaded for 1/2 x 28 or is the barrel too thin and would require a non-standard device.
