    uzi model A front sight thread

    Just curious if anyone knows the uzi model a front sight thread pitch?

    I know the model b's use #8-36 (AR front sight threads) but I wasn't sure about the model A's.

    I think they're a larger/different thread but was curious if anyone here may know off the top of their heads.

    Thanks.

    8mm x 0.5

    Edit: If you're re tapping it let me know I might have that one for you to borrow.

    Thanks for the info.

    I was thinking the model A threads were a lot smaller than that.

    Reason I was wondering, I'm considering making a F1 suppressor for an old High Standard HDM and I remembered how the model A front sight adjusted for windage, but 8mm would be way too big of a hole.

    So, I guess I need to go back to the drawing board. I suppose I could probably file a standard AR front post down to the same rough shape as the uzi front.

    It may would be easier just to use a brass shotgun bead.

    I'm at the beginning stages, but it is a project that I've had my eyes on a while.

    Thanks for the help.
