Hey guys! I’m looking at getting the delta p adapter and I was wondering if the m60 hider would work. Are the threads on m60 hider 5/8-24?

I don't know about the M60 FH threading but I would like to hear a review with pictures on the Delta P Adapter.

UPDATE: I saw this posted on AR15 - M60 would be 5/8x24
M249 would be 1/2x28

When I shortened my RPD barrel and bipod to 16" I had an M60 style FH made for it.

Back in the mid 80s and up to the early 90s I worked a part time for Walt Lagendorfer. Walt designed and held the patent for the Rhino Device, 1st gas piston system on an M16/AR15.

Walt was always making some sort of attachments for M16/AR15s rifles. One day he came back from a big Gun Show in Ohio with 3 dozen NIW M60 barrels with bipods and FHs. Walt then designed and we made made conversion kits for the mounting of the M60 bipod onto an M16/AR15 barrel. I bought one bipod and kept one of the conversion kits. Here is a picture of my son,(he is 15 years old in this pic), with a M60 bipod mounted on a pre-ban AR15 Rifle. The conversion Kit caused my groups to open up to 8 or more inches at 100 yards. It was terrible. I still have the conversion kit and bipod but I will never mout it again on a rifle.
