I really don't like the crush washer when mounting a brake or FH on an AR, where can I get just a threaded locking nut for the AR? Looked on Brownells, nothing.

Have you considered a peel washer? They might better suit your taste. I've got a couple lying around if you need one.

Thanks - but with either I seem to end up having a hard time indexing the brake/fh properly and I like the look of the lock nut.

Peel washers are for you...

Using a DPMS locknut with muzzle devices NOT designed for it causes a whole new set of problems.

Agree - I picked up some peel washers over the weekend.
