For the last barrel I bought for a semi auto, I decided to go with threaded. So as to open up future options.
The thread protector kept coming loose so cranked it on with channel locks. That worked👍 but.... To clean it and oil the barrel I had to use channel locks to take it back apart☹.. Got to thinking this could be a major shut down issue in the field. What if I had to take it apart while in a situation where I could not get to tools. Of course there is lock tight, thread tape, and crush sleeves are available, but they produce the same issue of difficult field strip.
I started looking for solutions. Looking thru my junk drawer I found the solution.🤔
O ring.
I made a video explaining.

Us guys with suppressors use the O Rings. Keeps the suppressor from turning threads while riding on a tractor or 4 x 4 all day. I actually had a suppressor unthread itself while bouncing around several hours on a tractor. Got O rings on all my threaded guns now. Lots of uses for them. Good tip thanks for the reminder.
