    Did you apply any grease before threading the suppressor on?

    I have one still in jail that I got a chance to test thread onto my MK23 a while back. The exact same thing happened to mine - a lot of early resistance that I had to twist through, thinking "Wow, this really fits on here snug! Guess it'll never back off, unlike my Octane. Awesome! MILSPEC!" It was equally difficult to thread off, after which, I observed a shredded O ring very similar to the OP. I asked the FFL about it and he said it was normal and most guys just leave the suppressor on full time and replace the ring after every removal, which sounded weird to me, but I've never had this particular can before. Just to be safe, I emailed KAC and got a response back advising me to "try not to spiral it on" when I attach it. I ended up just buying several extra O rings and forgot about it until now.

    I probably didn't check to make sure the O ring was fully seated, and I definitely didn't lube it before threading it on, so either of those could have been the issue, but I'm very curious to hear any followup to this.

    No i didnt apply any grease on it since it was never stated on it. Well good to hear its not mine alone. But honestly just emailed the sales rep helping me to see about shipping it back since no ones looked at it yet and its been there for now 15 business days and not even a report on it.

    Ok i actually got a response back about it being worked on now, only after i sent the email. So maybe it might be an issue with the oring slot being too shallow. Gotta wait to see what

    Awesome, please advise when you hear back. Not super jazzed about the idea of having to send mine in before the form 4 even gets approved, but it beats the alternative I guess.

    Late to this thread but gross as it sounds, I lube that Oring with slobber before I screw the suppressor on. Doing that makes screwing on the suppressor easier and the heat from shooting evaporates the moisture real fast so the suppressor doesn't back off. Just a little red neck fyi. lol

    I call it improvisation!!!
    The culprit may be the O-ring itself.

    Slightly off topic, but does anyone have the specs on that o-ring, by chance?

    Dimensions & material?
