Is the flashider removable? If so what size are the threads? 14mm? And are the threads CW or CCW?
Thank you.

Yes, the flash hider is removable and is 12mm CW.

Normally you'll need a barrel adapter if you want to put a "Can" on it.

It's certainly the same case for TM MP7.

Radix so you cant use standard 14mm CCW or CW "Cans" on it?

You can't.   You'll need a 12mm to 14mm adapter.

Allizard, any idea where I can purchase a 12mm to 14mm adapter that will work with the MP7. I have looked all over and cant find any. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It takes time to developed new accessories for new products.  But there will be aftermarket adapter available later..

Why would they make the threads 12mm and cw? That doesn't make any scene to me since a adapter will have to be specially made for it and now you can mount on your favorite flash hider or suppressor, so my question is what good is that going to do us the consumer? Doesn't seem practical, unless kwa wants to make more money off of us by making there mp7 owners by a kwa accessorize to mount different flash hiders/suppressors

I can answer your question easily.  Why 12mm? Simple! the outer barrel diameter of the live MP7 accommodates a 4.6x30mm proprietary round. Due to design constraints (and saving weight) HK went with the smallest available thread they saw fit(which so happens to be proprietary as well).  To make true to the real counterpart, our design incorporates the nearest common thread size and pitch, 12x1mm+ (Clock-wise).

As for the question to expandable MP7 products.  The current electric counterparts already uses an uncommon negative thread (IIRC, 12x1.5mm- [negative]).  You'll have to purchase parts made specifically for that particular gun.  Our case, it's simplified to easy machine taps.

You're giving KWA crap because their MP7A1 is too realistic and is not compatible with your "toy" suppressor?

Is 2mm really that much more realistic, I mean are you going to pick one up that has a 14mm barrel and look n say wow this looks totally unrealistic its 2 mm off  :iiam:  I think 2 mm wouldnt hurts its realism and would be nice to have personally but thats just me ;)

Just a guess here but I wonder if 2mm could mean the difference between getting the HK license agreement and not? A 14mm flash hider would not look like the RS model. Plain and simple. :gun:
