Thanks Gary, is Never Seize a hardware store kind of item or gun specific?
you can find it at hardware stores. Normally comes in a pint can that you paint on with a brush. Put the paste on sparingly as you only need a thin film of the stuff. The Loctite stuff dosn't seem to do well with fine threads, and will actually dry up over time, and then destroy the threads when you remove them. Last I heared Harbor Frieght sold it, and I think I've seen it at Menards.
the cheapest place I found to buy Never Sieze is at a web site called "The Find". They had pint cans for $15. That's enough to last you half a lifetime! I looked at several sites, and this one is by far the cheapest (this stuff has quadrupled over the last ten years). A 35mm film canister of the stuff will do fifty barrels. I know farmers that go thru two pint cans a year, and just about every good engine builder uses it
No kidding. I am planning on getting a barrel nut wrench and the other ins and outs for this project from midway. Does anyone know if Redding makes go/ no-go gauges? I'm having trouble finding headspace gauges. Also have been planning on going with a #4 contour or heavy sporter weight barrel but I've been reading that some people are saying they wouldn't go any lighter than a #5 on a long range rig any thoughts would be great.
