    You can't overtorque a crush washer. The torque stays the same as it crushes, until it completely crushes. The whole idea is to just turn it until it's indexed. Very simple device, pretty much a no-brainer. You didn't damage anything except the crush washer, which is, what....$.75. I've never used anything except crush washers for years to install a muzzle device. Shims are a PITA. Maybe a preferable route for a precision build but I wouldn't know...I've never striven for precision exactly.

    Yessir, I have the SPR stainless. Centerpiece of my Centurion build.
    Itís not like the recoil on any 16Ē (or even my 12.5Ē) is actually bad, but I liked BRTís gas design and profile. And, the barrel is undoubtedly more accurate than I am capable, so I also like the idea of a known good quality.
    Kind of like learning on a Martin over a Yamaha; you donít need to, but why not?

    I'd bet that there are some garbage crush washers out there that don't meet this description. For A2 flash hiders, I use them too. I even re-use them when they've not been smooshed much.

    I've installed so many shim devices that I dread that ass ache incredibly.

    There is no torques value for an A2 styled flash hider. The manual clearly states it is based upon alignment.
