Hi all,

What is the torque rate on the barrel nut when installing an AR15 barrel? I remember reading it somewhere but forgot what it was... Got a friend whose RRA Aluminum Free Float handguard seem to be integrated with the barrel nut and cannot be turned loose by hand, so am wondering what the standard torque rate is... Thanks.
