Hey guys,
Just picked up a PWS FSC30 and it came with a shim kit, no crush washer.

It's this one, which doesn't allow use of a Crushe washer.

I put the upper in my vice and got this thing torqued and clocked pretty good, but I didn't use rocktite or anything like that. I got it torqued to about 40-45 ft/lb.
Do you think it's ok? or should I rocktite it?

Where do I buy rocktite and is there a loctite equivalent?

This is the one I got:

Hey man my wife is Chinese and I don't appreciate your racism on the forum.....










Just kidding man, I knew you meant rockset and loctite. Just use the red lock tite, or just run it and see if it moves, chances are it won't.

My wife is Chinese though...

Your response made a little pee dribble out I laughed so hard.

You think I should test it first and then put the Roc-tite on it?
What's the number for the best product match for the red loctite. I know there's hundred's of variations.

I would test it just to see. I just go into Auto zone and look for the High temp stuff. It works pretty good and can still be removed with a smoke wrench if you need to... I don't have the numbers handy right here though, sorry.


Glad to know you thought it was funny, sometimes it doesn't transfer on here... Reminds me of this picture which made me laugh so hard my face hurt for a day.... My wife loves it too...

Larry,
Is there a Loctite equivalent to rock set?

I work for a supply company and we have EVERY TYPE OF loctite.

Thanks!

Not sure on which one it would be.

We use Loctite red 272 (item 27240) on our AR-30 and AR-50 threaded muzzle brakes. We use a peel washer for the M-15 and a crush washer for the AR-10. To remove at a later date just use a butane torch to heat it up.

IMHO, you likely have that brake too tight. It often does not take to many foot pounds before you actually start distorting the bore geometry and negatively impact accuracy. On match guns, I use minimal torque and maximum Loctite or Rock Set. On quick detach suppressor mounts, I use a bit more torque (15 ft lbs or so) and careful Rock Set prep and use. A simple check is to test the gun before and after torquing to ensure you are not 'going to far' and hurting your downrange performance.

It's called "Rocksett" and it's at www.flexbar.com.

45lbs of torque well keep it on just fine unless you use it to open C rats.
