    Well thought out.
    I know it sounds like a joke but if it is true it is a good idea.
    Actually....I agree. Having a cheap, fusible link in any system can be a good idea....provided the fuse doesn't break too easily.

    Now, I should say for the record, I don't think that's the case with this particular bolt on the XCR.....I just put the wood to a well designed system/bolt and broke it. Really nothing more to say than that. Mea Culpa.

    the ejector bolt heads are designed to break before you damage the threads.

    To be honest the only time I ever used a torque wrench when doing a barrel nut was on my eval in school. Wrench it tight a few times then snug it down 'til the splines line up for the gas tube. The limits are from 30-80 pounds which is plenty of latitude. The only time you'll approach 80 pounds is if something is really out of spec, IME. The anti-seize is solely up to you though I always use a little moly because that's what I was used to.
    definitely put some moly grease on the barrel nut threads adam.
