I am a geek in many ways: one of which involves camo patterns. Camo holsters, camo clothes and even camo phone cases. I make no apologies for my love of earthy patterns. So when I saw the Kryptek camo thread protector from Backup Tactical, something stirred inside me. Usually thread protectors are lackluster pieces of knurled metal. Not here.
Now, if you are expecting pages upon pages of in-depth review, I’m going to go ahead and stop you right there.
It’s a thread protector for crying out loud.
But they are definitely unique enough to get some air time.
Two things: First, I’m not a “bling” kind of guy, and some versions of the Reliable Thread Protector border on “gun bling”. But I also recognize that I am the last person anyone should take style advice from. Second, the guns I have threaded all have dedicated suppressors, so the situations where I would need a thread protector might be less than other shooters.
But the team at Backup Tactical have put together a well made, good looking and affordable thread protector.
