I bought one of Bushmaster's varminter ff tubes (the vented one) and I really like it. Looking ahead to installing it I have a few questions:
The barrel nut goes on by using a strap wrench, right? I bought one from Brownells (#382-100-015) but it's so darn small that I don't think it's up to the job. So what's the wrench that Bushmaster puts these on with, and can I get one from Bushmaster or elsewhere?
Is this aluminum barrel nut supposed to be put on to the same torque specification, and with the same procedure? I.E. twice up to 30 ft-lbs then again up to at least 30 but less than 80?
Lastly, Is the use of anti-sieze compound on the threads of the receiver still recommended?
