I am having trouble installing a new Phantom 5C2. It is damn tight and I can not get the non-notched setion all the way around to the bottom. Right now it is completly level center on the top of the flashider.

I know muzzle blast out and down might make the barrel rise more during rapid fire but would it not also limit the amount of flash in the field of view more as well? Just thinking it would not be horrible if I left it there would it?

Should the crush washer be tightened until it is totaly flat or just enough that it acts like a spring?

I would think it will kick up a lot of dust, raise more under rapid fire, and have less flash visible to you after dark. I advise against.

Well then I need to figure out how to get it all the way around.

You can sand down the crush washer a bit....But are you using barrel blocks in a bench vice? It takes a pretty good amount of torque to get them time correctly sometimes.

I would get a couple of peel washers somewhere. You can just peel off a layer in order to advance the flash hider into the correct timing. I would get ahold of Krista or Robert over at RBPRECISION (www.rbprecision.com)That should be all it takes....

Good Luck!

Mine indexed fine with a crush washer. You might want to try the peel washer suggestion however.

Are you using an OLD crush washer? If so, try a new one.....

I had to buy a ten dollor vice from wally world, used duck tape on barrell & than tighten vice unto the protected duck tape.

Than I tighten phantom using crush washer, it worked.

Filing down crush washer or bottom of flash hider would proably work as well.

I went too far with the first crush washer and when I backed it off it was too loose to use so I removed it and added a new crush washer. I have 1/2 a rotation to go and it will be correct. I guess I will crank on it in a vice and see what happens. If that does not do it I may resort to the peel washers.

Mine was a bitch to get on at first too, your best bet is to do the vice thing and crank it down.
