I am finishing up an AR build and I am trying to get the barrel nut for the free float forened to line up with the gas tube hole. At hand tight, it was about half way between holes to line up. When I try to tighten it with the wrench, I can almost get it to align. How tight does it really need to be? Or, should I back it off and line it up with the previous hole?


Thanks

Its a wide range of torque. Basically, hand tight then tighten to alignment with the holes. Trying to go to far especially with aluminum nuts will break the holes out.
