Hey everyone, first post. Also new to firearms for about 7 months. Very much a newbie and not very mechanically inclined, although I try. But I often wish I just took whatever was broken to a pro.
Purchased a Sub 2000 last week and then several M*CARBO Accessories. I have also watched all videos when doing these installs. The Recoilless Charging Handle where you have to compress the coil was a serious POA. Got it but it took a while.
Today I attempted to install the Muzzle Brake while also using the recommended Barrel Jaws. I again watched the install video. Did everything per the instructions. Cranked it until it got tight, I backed it off > started tightening it again > then backed off > started tightening again as the top of the muzzle brake was underneath (on the bottom side). Then all of a sudden my front sight moved.
I have no clue how to loosen and readjust this. I have removed the Muzzle Brake. The crushed washer is still on. Do I have to take that off? If so, it’s on there good. So how?
Next, how do I get my front sight straight again? There is a nut that the crushed washer was butting up against. Is that how I would readjust?
Here is a picture of how it looks now.
