Default Bulgarian 4-Piece Flash Hider on Galil ACE

I recently purchased a Bulgarian 4-Piece Flash Hider and I want to put it on my Galil Ace Pistol (7.62x39). I purchased a 5/8-24 to M24x1.5 thread adapter

(https://www.cncwarrior.com/5-8-24-to...er-p/25091.htm)

Has anyone here tried this or did something similar? If so, did you have any problems?

Should I be worried about thread concentricity?

I’ve seen the Noveske flaming pig can thing on a ACE pistol, looked decent, should be good about pushing the blast forward like the Bulgy muzzle device

Don’t worry about thread concentricity, this is Israeli made and built like other western rifles

Afraid not. When I first shot my ace pistol it was something of a flame thrower. I ended up with the three prong flash hider by JP Enterprises, since my research showed that this was the most effective option out there for killing flash.

Of course, it's also pretty huge.

I don't see any reason why your solution wouldn't work though, and I definitely think it would look cooler.

Should work like a charm. The Bulgy beer can works excellent. Only thing to check- Make sure the base of the cone does not meet the muzzle as this will reduce the desired effect. a small gap between the two allows some of the signature into the can.
After breaking it in the cap often becomes loose but there are 3 wire notch adjustments to tighten it back up.

I installed my flash hider over my thread adapter. Shot about 120 rounds through it and noticed the flash hider was loose when I got home. The thread adapter stayed in place.

What should I do to keep the flash hider from migrating?

I was thinking Rocksett or Red Loctite. I see mixed reviews for both.

Got any pics with the JP on there? That's what I was gonna put on mine, but went with the vortex.
