When unscrewing the Vortex from the barrel, where is the proper place to support the rifle so nothing gets buggered up?
Good deal, thanks. I didn't put it on and I wasn't sure how tight it was on there. I've only ever dealt with the USGI flash suppressor and castle nut before.Shouldn't be that tight so just use a GC wrench when you loosen it. That's all I ever used when I had one and never had any issues.
Removal.OK. So what are the wrench flats for, then?
Hand tight and no anti-seize needed due to the design.I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you want to use a GC wrench on the GC and a 3/4" box wrench on the flash hider. Be firm, but gentle. Snug, rather than tight. And use anti-seize compound.
