Building guns has become more of a hobby as to a profession now a days. With fabrication shops revising and creating new specs for a lot of our favorite guns, to insane modifications that only the crazy can devise. With every build potentially being within different tolerances it is no surprise that you may run into “snags”. One of which maybe the torque on the barrel nut.
- “If you build enough AR-15 uppers, you will eventually come across one that just isn’t going to cooperate with the torque specs. Don’t sweat it.”
- “You aren’t going to hurt anything if you have to go beyond the torque spec (within reason). Clint Hanson shares some of his experience with getting those last few millimeters of travel on your barrel nut in Ballistic Advantage’s most recent Builder Series video.”
- Sometimes you have a receiver at one side of the spectrum and a barrel nut at the opposite, so it can get hard even though you have all these options.
