As long as the bore of the flash hider remains concentric with the thread cavity you should be fine. Flash hiders are mostly round and this would be a perfect modification performed on a metal turning lathe...

Been there, done that. Only I used one of the big honkin' 5 1/2" CAR hiders. It's no problem if you keep it straight, I used a lathe. But in the end the rifle went off to Great West and now it is threaded. Been through several different brakes and settled on an Izzy. Have a 41/2" permanent on another mini but for the most part it's really nice to be able to switch and test muzzle parts.

You could order the Chote flash hider A2 which requires no mods to your mini form Brownells (cheaper) and you get the front sight with it. I put one on my Mini 30 and it works great. get the one for the new minis its a direct fit.

It would be a lot easier to get it threaded by Gundoc. If it doesn't work out like you want then changing is simple.
