Back in the time of the dinosaurs a lot of companies used a 14mm Clockwise thread. TM was one o f the first companies to exclusively use 14mm CCW thread, and when their AEGs became the standard many new manufacturers followed suit. Unfortunately, ARES has been around for quite some time and when they started they picked CW threads (since neither side is overly predominant).
However, I suppose it is something we can ask - they may switch if there is enough interest!
