M18x1 isn’t compatible with 5/8-24.

You could use an adaptor, but would advise against it, as you are stacking up the tolerances. New mod or new thread bridge if applicable if it were me.

You can go the other way M18 X 1 to 5/8" with thread adapter/ reducer but not the way you want to go , as has been said before buy another mod.

What make/model  is your moderator ?

BTW you have a moderator and brake not break :)

You could have your M18x1 rethreaded to 5/8 without losing any barrel length.

Warranty would go out the window and technically it should be re proofed, get ready for a three month wait , if the OP tells us what make his mod is ie if its a Wildcat then he can just by the guts with the right thread.

Proof?

He's in Ireland, hence the use of the word "Tread" and the fact his screen name is Connaught Ranger should be clues....or is that clews?

Never mind that the rifle he bought is a Begorra ?
