    Questions from a new user

    I finally got my YHM Fatcat and HuxWrx OSS out of jail and now need to install the muzzle devices. YHMís instructions say nothing about torque value or using a thread locker- just use the provided tools to install. HW is more straight forward with torque value but doesnít mention a thread locker. Iíve watched a few videos and some say thread lock it and others donít. What is the hiveís opinion and experience on properly installing these muzzle devices?

    Huxwrx has left-handed threads on the suppressor side so just enough torque to keep the muzzle device on is all thatís needed. I use about 20-25 ft-lb which is way more than I can ever apply by hand mounting the suppressor.

    For right-handed thread like my DeadAir KeyMo, I use 25 ft-lb with Rocksett.

    ETA: Thatís for the typical 1/2-28 threaded .223/5.56 barrels. I go up to 30-35 ft-lb on .308.

    I use Rocksett and 20ft-lbs across all my mounts.

    Oh, and no crush washers. If your mount needs to be timed for whatever reason, use shims.

    Usually common types will have detailed instructions. Can search by keywords, example: scratch games

    Thanks for the input. I got the muzzle devices installed and have been enjoying the suppressor world. I wish I didn’t wait so long to buy them but better late than never I guess.
