Samson Releases US-Standard Thread Adapters for 9x19mm and 9x37mm AKs

Keene, NH – Samson Manufacturing has just released their new AK thread adapter for 9×19 and 9×39 AK-type rifles with 14 x 1 LH threaded muzzles. Constructed from 17-4 stainless or 4140 carbon steel, these adapters are designed to fit standard thread ½ x 28mm 9mm suppressors to the AK pistols hitting the market.

These will also let 9×39 shooters run subsonic ammunition through their 9mm suppressors (if rated by the suppressor manufacturer).

Samson Chief Operating Officer Tim Mulverhill explained, “These 9mm AK pistols are coming in to the country with a variety of muzzle threads. Some are 1/2×28 and can take a standard 9-mil can without an adapter, and others have the 14×1 left-hand European AK thread which requires an adapter. Sometimes both thread pitches can be seen from the same manufacturer, depending on import lot. Our adapter solves this issue for shooters with the more common 14×1 muzzle thread”.

The Samson AK thread adapter indexes on the muzzle of the barrel, which provides a more uniform and tighter lockup than cheaper versions that index on the front sight base. Mulverhill explained that, “There are so many variables in AK manufacturing as far as muzzle threading and front sight base installation – even from multiple guns in the same manufacturing lot – that the most reliable way to maintain concentricity with the bore is to index off the muzzle. Our adapter does not contact the front sight base and is not intended to, which reduces any chance of baffle strikes from poorly fitting adapters. So long as your barrel threads are concentric to the bore, our adapter will maintain that alignment with your suppressor”.

Also available for 14×1 LH to 5/8x24mm applications, Samson AK Thread Adapters can be purchased at  and are available for immediate shipment.
