Guys, what torque wrench do you use for the flash hider? All the ones i have seen dont look like they would work properly. Also, how many ft-lbs to install a standard A1 of A2 hider? any tricks to it???

put a drop of blue loctite on it and crush the crush washer...line it up properly with the crush washer under duress and that's good enough. The blue loctite is optional

The little multitool four inch long barrel wrench that has a ratchet hole in it that fits on your torque wrench also has a notch for the flashhider.

These directions are for using a peel-washer and call for 15-20 ft lbs. I'd probably avoid going much over that. BSW

I just use a 3/4" open ended wrench, and if you're worried about marring the FH finish you can put a single strip of masking or electrical tape on it.
