  • CNC Machined
  • Anodized Finish
  • Thread Protector

A simple yet effective device, designed to protect your Airsoft gun's outer barrel threads from damage during gameplay and transport. 

Full description


The Thread Protector is constructed from CNC Machined 6026 T9 Aircraft Grade Aluminium, making the part lightweight, accurate, and most importantly, highly durable. The threads inside are machine cut, making them highly accurate to ensure no damage is caused to the threads when they are installed. The adaptor is designed to be attached to 16mm Clockwise threads, which are commonly found on larger pistols, such as the TM MK23, the KSC / KWA / Umarex USP, and most MK23 SOCOM clones. This is the perfect purchase for those Airsoft Skirmishers who have an Airsoft replica and want to protect their threads from damage caused by knocks, impacts, and dirt. Please note, this is a 14mm Clockwise (CW) Thread, please ensure the thread you are attaching it to is also Clockwise, as if you attach it to a Counter Clockwise Thread it will damage the thread and possibly become stuck.

Size guide

Parts Fitting

Upgrades and Downgrades should only be undertaken by experienced players, or Airsoft Technicians. Please note, changing any internal parts of a weapon voids its warranty unless done in-house by our staff. 

Please ensure that when fitting parts the part purchased is the correct part, as once a part has been fitted we cannot accept return.

We do know that players love to tinker, so we're here to give you help should you require it, and if needed you can get in touch with our workshop for more help!

Unique Parts

Please note that some parts may be unique to a specific brand of weapon. For example: Parts for an ASG M4A1 may not fit an ICS M4A1.

Parts from the same brand typically have a high chance of fitting, though be warned, some replicas use unique parts, so please ensure the part will fit before you attempt to fit it.

If you require help with fitting any parts feel free to get in touch with us via our Contact Us Page.
