    I am the proud owner of a new 223P and I was curious as to whether on not I should use washers when I mount this. If so - is there a consensus on crush vs. peel? Is there any 'indexing' I need to worry about?

    Its going on a BCM SS410 11.5" barrel. If that makes any difference.

    Thank you guys for making great products.

    Nope, mount it directly to the muzzle threads without a washer.

    That is what I figured - but it never hurts to check. Thank you for the quick response.

    Off to the range to break it in!

    Is there a particular torque specification when attaching the silencer? Or do you just go hand tight? How often should one check that the silencer is not coming loose?

    Hand tight on the threads. Once the threads are broken in, they should stay tight in normal shooting conditions. When I shoot a bolt gun throughout the day, I'll check it from time to time, but it's never loose. If you do check, take care to not burn yourself.

    If you hammer it on an SBR and you find that it does come loose, please call the shop and we can send you a set of special lock washers. These are what we normally send with the 223A for full-auto applications.
