    I didn't notice when I was checking it out but does it have a threaded barrel? If it does then that's great, if nothe then it might be helpful to have it threaded for an Indian Creek BFD blast-deflector.;)

    Mine does not, but it's a couple of years old so I'm not sure if it's available now or not.

    I just looked again and it appears that the new models are threaded.
    I've decided to go with an AR pistol build in 300BLK and I'll utilize the Indian Creek BFD blast deflector.

    I should note, BFD still needs a traditional muzzle device to hold it on, even just a thread-protector collar will do--it has no barrel-side threading of it's own, just where the collar screws onto the mount.

    Other advice: First thing you do when you take it out of the package, remove the collar and screw the provided thread-protector onto the mount until you have it installed.
