.685"-40 or 11/16-40 dimensions


Recommended Posts

I plan on doing some gunsmithing but have a hard time finding official threading data / dimensions anywhere on the typical bull barrel compensator thread .685"-40 or 11/16-40 tpi.

Can someone help me and guide me in the right direction or take a screenshot of the data from some official machining book?
