Threaded barrels. They just make every gun a little bit cooler, don’t they? Slap a threaded barrel on even the common GLOCK 19 and it instantly stands out on the range. Not to mention all the options it opens up for muzzle devices. But what if you have a threaded barrel and aren’t using a muzzle device at the moment? Enter Backup Tactical’s line of spiffy looking thread protectors.

Threaded barrels are cool, but if you aren’t careful, things can go sideways quickly.

You could accidentally drop your threaded gun and bend one of the threads out of alignment, rendering the threads instantly useless. Or if they become clogged after thousands of rounds it could take some a chunk of time and elbow grease to clean the gunk out and make it serviceable again.

To keep the threads in good working order, prudent owners slot a thread protector onto their barrel when not in use. Most threaded barrels don’t come with a thread protector out of the box so you’ll need to find one on your own. Most companies out there make boring standard thread protectors, nothing more than black metal tubes. But for those looking for something a little more stylish, Backup Tactical may have just the ticket.

Materials Used in the Thread-Protectors

Backup Tactical machines their thread protectors out of aluminum, a material soft enough to not gouge or scratch your threads but tough enough to stand up to the typical wear and tear you would expect on the barrel of a gun. Not only are they functional, but the biggest selling point for Backup Tactical’s product is that they add a little extra flair to your already pimped out gun. Whether you want a laser-etched Spartan, a utilitarian cross-hatch, or even a hot pink camo pattern it’s all possible.

Backup Tactical’s protectors are available in the following pitches:

  • 1/2×28
  • 13.5×1 LH
  • .578×28
  • 16×1 LH
  • 5/8×24

Out on the range, the thread protectors work as advertised. They slot on easily and, just as important, stay put. And they don’t scratch easily.

What more do you need? Not every design is my cup of tea, but…horses for courses. There are a few Backup Tactical looks that I’d totally pay $30 for. If there’s one that would look good on your gat, go for it.

Specifications: Backup Tactical Thread Protector

  • MSRP: $29.99
  • Overall: ****

I’ve seen thread protectors for less, but not much less. The style is where Backup Tactical’s protectors really stand out.

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.

But the team at Backup Tactical has put together a well made, good looking and affordable thread protector. And as suppressor ownership increases at a record pace, thankfully there is going to be a lot more threads to protect. We might as well have some style choices.

What’s available right now.

Currently, only the 1/2×28 thread pattern is available, but the company has plans to release protectors in other popular thread pitches very soon. Besides the Kryptek pattern, my other favorite was the red, white and blue ‘stars and bars’ version.

Owner/operator Jason Bayne created custom thread protectors just for himself for years. But when shooters at his range asked him “Where did you get those?”, Bayne decided to take his idea to the commercial market. And Backup Tactical has thread protectors to fit almost any style.

Last thing I almost forgot about their thread-protectors…

I almost forgot. As thread protectors they work as advertised. They spin on easily with no wobble and they mount up flush to the shoulder.

Honestly, with all the custom Glock builds and refinishing options available these days, I can see the Reliable Thread Protector selling well. Check them out. Click here to read the full article.
