Default AR muzzle brakes timing made easy

Ebay sells the washer/shims "kits" which make timing any brake a simple easy to do.

Here, get 2 as sooner or later you will need more.

I used the pws shim kit.
Yeah they are easy and never had it come loose.
It was nice and tight when I removed and went back to the A2.
Shim kit & proper wrench and your gtg.

Flash hiders only way to go. Iíve had a few Arís that no matter how many shims I used the threading wouldnít let me time the brake. Daniel Defense was one.

On all my guns there's a little spring detent thingy next to the muzzle that locks the muzzle device into time. Guess that's just me.

Use original crush washer and sandpaper. No need buying a "kit" or shimming anything.

Bragging you don't own an Ar is foolish. Must suck to be you

saw the picture of the AK in his sig. my bad. ARs use these things called "crush washers". the name pretty much sums it up.
