hey ive searching around i notice 40 inch pounds of torque is required for the castle nut. i tightened mine by hand then used the wrench and just gave it a lil tap and the staked it. just out of curiosity how much torque would it take to actually break the part where the buffer tube screws into on a 7075-t6 forged receiver?

You already asked this a week or so ago.

here

We want to help you out as much as we can but you really need to do a lot of reading and not worry so much about what if problems. your rifle is fine. You would have to put a lot of torque to break the lower way more than is needed to secure it.

40 ft-lbs is only for a fixed stock receiver extension. The correct torque for the castle nut is 40 inch pounds.

wrong.  it has been corrected by colt and armalite both.  40in lbs is barely finger pressure, and was admitted to be a typo by both companies.

I already mentioned this in the other thread that was linked in.

FORTY PLUS OR MINUS TWO FOOT POUNDS IS THE CURRENT SPEC, ANYTHING ELSE IS A TYPO OR FLAT OUR WRONG.

I guess I was wrong. I was just going by the technical manual I have, I didn't know it was a typo. Thanks for the correction.

This may get this thread locked but it belongs in GD any way.  Im not sure he will ask the same question but I am sure he will ask some full retard question about his rifle that may or most likely not will ever be a problem or some question like this about how much lube would hurt his gun or some shit even though he dosent lube it to much and it has runs flawless. Or some question that has been aske an answered 1000 time or is in the FAQ. But most of all he will waste the bandwidth  an time of Arfcom.

Is this the same one that you used the red loctite on?  You never come back to your threads and follow up.
