... The three of my four M4 upper barrels' threading is timed out past (270° or farther) from what I would expect to be "normal" torque.

... How do you address that?

Do you want some old school peel washers?

I have a bunch.

I'm real old school and have three prong flash hiders with split washers on my builds.

It's bad ju-ju in the accuracy department if you exceed 15 foot pounds. I like to keep it closer to 5 foot pounds.

The guys shooting highpower use hand tight flash hiders with locktite.

... Yeah bro! I'll take you up on that offer. If you're going to Shawn's shindig, just bring them along. I'll buy 4 of them.

... See Ryan! I knew there were reasons not to just crank them on with brute force

Peel washers are more classy anyway. They require some actual effort.

I believe a crush washer gives you at least 360 degrees of rotation past hand tight before you have to worry about it being maxed out. Once you get the crush washer going, the torque required to rotate the FH further doesn't increase any noticeable amount, at least not to me. That said, peel washer do look cooler if that sort of thing matters to you. If time and low blood pressure matter more, use the crush washer.

I'll be at the 9/14 party. Remind me to bring them.

I had a crush washer once that was out of time, even after much torque was applied.
Sand or file down one side of the washer until the timing looks closer, then torque down.

I just rubbed the smaller end of the washer on a wetstone until a bit of material had been removed... fit great after that.
