Hi Folks,

Have a ? for Socom owners who are familiar with or use a Smith brake or Vortex FH.

I have the gas cyl. and front band shimmed and it's nice and tight.The Smith gas block is firm too but not overtightened.
My question is about where to put shims in order to get the Vortex FH to lineup to where the
slots are right in line with barrel so it looks like this " + " when viewed from muzzle end.

It is currently on rifle and I put the shims between the GL and the Vortex itself and it lined up just were it should be.

Did I put the 3 shim rings in the right place or do they need to be moved?

Thanks to all in advance
