I am trying to remove the BRT linear comp from my WLV so that I can install a Dead Air Brake in preparation for my Sandman suppressor.  I got the comp off no problem, but I cannot get the washer off.  It will not come off over the threads, and I can not unscrew it.  Any advice?  I'm hoping I don't need to cut it off because I am afraid I will damage the barrel or the threads

I've had exactly the same happen with several crush washers.  I resorted to a Dremel tool with the tiny cut-off disk to slice most of the way thru - then used a pair of side-cutters to snip the rest of the way.  Threads were untouched.

I was just going to say the same thing!

The crush washer is in an area normally not involved in the threads of the new brake. If you bugger normally wont mater. If so chase treads or relieve a bit.

Yep, what Ranger said.
For some reason, I've had this issue with just about every 5/8" crush washer I've tried to take off. I usually hold a thin piece of steel (scraper blade or such) between the washer and the barrel shoulder for extra protection.

Thanks. That worked. Very nerve-wracking, but I did it without screwing anything up. New device is installed. Now just have to wait 4-6 months for the suppressor

4-6 months?  Did you apply 6~9 months ago?  I've got 3 cans in Form-4 jail, ranging from 12 to 9 months and counting.  I hate this... not like they don't already have me on record for all the other NFA stuff, or 43.5 years of Govt service with a clearance.  Ugh...

It's getting bad enough to make me glad I can't afford a suppressor.[wink]

Isn't it sad how long it takes to get approval for a muffler?

Wait times for NFA items has gotten a lot better recently as the ATF has increased its manpower for this area.  I just picked up a Form 4 Trust can at 8 months and 3 weeks.  Individual forms are taking just a little less than 6 months.

I have the Bergara LRP in 6.5 Creedmoor which comes with a Dead Air brake. I decided to put a Dead Air brake on the WLV and I bought the Sandman S suppressor. This setup allows me to share the one suppressor with both rifles. I am now thinking about buying a YHM Turbo 5.56 to share on my 5.56 based ARs. 2 questions:

1. I bought the Sandman at the beginning of January, if I buy the YHM now do I have to do the entire process over again? Fingerprints, photo, etc

2. Anyone know anything about the YHM Turbo?

Once you have an approved tax stamp, you have 24 months to reference that stamp and avoid fingerprints and photos on your Form 1/4.  If you have not yet received your stamp, then you have to do prints and photos.
