Conical

The muzzle brake on the Tantal has a conical washer to give it some firmness against the threads rather than rattling around.

The one that came with the parts kits was more flat than conical.


You do not need tools to tighten the muzzle brake down, Jakub!

Someone had really cranked down on this one and was flat when the brake was indexed without a wobble.  The new one just goes past the index point three times once the detent starts catching instead of four.  That fourth turn needed a tool, like the cleaning rod, passed through the opening of the brake to get it tight.

Notice that it's not smashed flat?  It's a conical washer, not a CRUSH washer!
