Three Lug Setup

Recommended Posts

Looking to see if anyone has a favored three lug wrench for installing the HK style three lug muzzle devices.  There are few different types that I have seen on the interwebs and wondered if someone had experience with one.  

Also, not sure how much it matters, but also wondered if there is a general rule of thumb on torque values.  I e-mailed the manufacturer of the three lug mount with no reply so far.

To be honest, I used a adjustable wrench.  None of mine are commercial though,. I've made 6 of them, four were 1/2x28 and two were 5/8x24.  They are used to utilize a couple Form 1 cans accross multiple platforms and calibers.  When I'm not running a can, I use HK 3 lug flash hiders that I picked up at Knob Creek back in 06 for $25 each.

As far as torque, I went slightly less than A2 flash hider.  I don't use crush washers though.  Peel washer or none.
