Default Why does my plan b keep getting stuck on my cherry bomb?

Every time I shoot more than 5-6 rounds, subs or supers, the plan b gets stuck and I have to use a wrench to get it off. Both on the blackout and 223. Is it because they are over gassed? I havenít adjusted the block on either rifle yet.

They have carbon on them when you are removing?

How hard are you tightening it down? You don’t need a lot of torque because the increased surface area with the tapers.

Maybe thatís the problem. I turn it pretty good to make sure itís snug.

A lot of times if you just wait a few minutes it cools off and unscrews easily.

Thatís what I thought too but it didnít work. Still needed the wrench.

Next time Iíll just turn it until it stops, not torque it down. Hopefully that will fix it.
