Default Anyone know the thread size for a TX latch rod?

I'm in the process of creating a long TX piston rod to convert a TX200 to UK legal specs without the need for weak or clipped coil springs and am a bit puzzled by the thread size. The latch rod diameter measures 9.92mm (I'm assuming 10mm nominal), and the thread pitch is 1.5mm.

Now the puzzling part, the latch rod will freely thread into the piston after cleaning off the thread locker, however my 10x1.5mm tap won't freely screw into the piston and the latch rod won't freely screw into a 10x1.5mm die.

What am I missing, will I have to single point cut the thread on my lathe?

Any help is appreciated!
