Doesn't sound like a big deal but you will never get it tight again at top dead center...using a crush washer lets the brakeout be removed as much as you want as along as you always use a new washer to bring it to top dead center
there is a reason not to use them, and if he was a machinist, he would have timed the barrel or fs w/o the crush washer which is easily done.
If you have a baffle strike for whatever reason, you will most liekly not get it replaced.
By the way what's the OAL with the can attached?
