I don't bed mine, but I do spread a thin layer of Loctite C5-A copper anti-seize on it, and on the barrel nut before installing them (wipe any excess inside and outside the receiver, of course), so things don't get stuck on there later if I ever choose to swap the barrel or have to do any maintenance.If you do bed what do you use? If you use locktite what number do you use?
Plus 1 here. I used to use blue loctite but its a PIA if you want to remove the barrel later. Anti seize and proper torque works just fine unless you have a loose fitting extension.I don't bed the barrel extension ether. Like MUD, I use anti seize and torque It down to recommended torque. I use a torque wrench and found that using Anti Seize reduces the amount of torque required to make up clean, dry threads. so after testing both dry and with Anti Seize the torque was reduced 15% using the Anti Seize to get to the same point.
I have never had one come apart and when rebarreling, removal is possible without damaging anything.
