Here's what I have,can someone suggest a good gunsmith...
I have one of the early Vector V53 pistols (223 of course)that I would like to put a different flash suppressor on.I currently have a Surefire Forend Weaponlight on it my V53.Because the weaponlight sticks out past the current flash hider,any time it was fired any gas/flash would also be directed down upon the weapon light.The barrel thread is 13x1 Right Hand.I was thinking of a longer version of the HK 4 prong flash hider so that the open flutes would not be over the light in my Surefire forend.Could anybody make a longer version of this flash hider (or something similar)with 13x1 RH threads for me?Here's some pics that should make it clear the issue I have.Thanks
In the 1st 2 pics you can see how a standard length flash hider would probably direct gas up on the laser in the cocking tube and certainly down upon the weapon light in the SureFire forend.
I was thinking of something like this but with a longer body so that the open prongs would not be over the weapon light
If you can't find someone to make a new FH with a longer body you could always torque the FH so that one of the tines is inline with the light. So the blast will go to the sides of the light instead of directly on top of it.
Or fab up a simple blast shield that mounts between the light and the flash hider to soak up the blast. Something simple light weight and cheaper to make than a one off flash hider.
