Do aftermarket flash hiders come with grub/set screw?

I was wondering if anyone can confirm if aftermarket (chinasoft/repro) flash hiders come with the grub/set screw to secure it to the barrel threads?

Specifically this model: http://www.airsoftparts.ca/store2/in...oducts_id=2882

I need to make sure that it does come with it for a build I'm working on

Some do but many don't feature a grub screw, so you need to tighten it down properly (some guns, like WE, addressed this by putting an o-ring behind peel washer; TM use to put a small spring behind it, which wasn't very effective. You might want to use a lock washer or threadlock).

That's for any airsoft FH, not just Chinese. Honestly I rarely see grub screws on them anymore.

Madbull muzzle devices (like the one in the link) usually have grub screws on the bottom.



You can see a small hint of a grub screw in the threads in this picture.

some do, some don't, honestly doesn't matter. If you're REALLY worried about it coming loose, use blue loctite.

Good eye, Rydock.

And Drake, I always wondered what those washers were for. But in any case, I won't actually be using the threads on the flash hider, hence why I need the grub screw.

Looking at the link again I saw it was Madbull: as Rydock pointed out MB usually have grub screws. You can send AirsoftParts a message and ask them, Jugglez is awesome and I'm sure he can look for you.

you can always drill a hole, tap it and add your own in a worst case.
