Re: Muzzel break blew off on the first shot!

I'm thinkin' like 'Flip',,,, I'd like to see the new threads on that barrel. Never been a fan of the "take it off, put it on,,,,,,, do it needlessly" thing. I've seen way too many breaks (and other stuff) cross threaded (because of the fine threads) or over torqued (again, because of the fine threads). Too many aren't/don't pay attention, kinda' like wrong ammo in wrong gun. How many times have we seen/ read about that? Stuff has to be "fool proof" these days.

"Anal" is the one thing you should always be when dealing with a firearm, especially after a botched up job like that guy did. There is no way I'd have shot that gun without first taking the break off and checking things out. I hope it doesn't come off again and kill someone the next time!!!
