    Glad I delayed my build just long enough to see your NBSIG - you beat me to the phone.

    I did not use an O-ring on my G17 install. Should I have?

    its not necessary and doesn't always work out. if you want to be sure whether or not to install with the o-ring in place, try putting the comp on without thread lock sure to make sure that spacing and timing is ok. If you already have the comp on, no worries. its an added measure but not one that works everytime

    Thx. I didn't want the O-ring and locker fusing into a permanent welded mess.

    The G43 is next.

    What does the term "Timing" mean in this context?

    "Charity has got everything to do with giving and absolutely nothing to do with taking."

    "Studies show that a rapist who has been shot several times loses ardor."

    Timing and head-space often refers to the lock-up of the action on an automatic firearm, specifically belt feds that need to move the round into position and close the chamber before firing or it will cause misfire as the chamber and action aren't closed to release the firing pin to discharge the round. In this case it's not really timing but the potential for the O ring to prevent the firearm from going completely into battery to discharge the round.

    NO, TIMING IS IN REFERENCE TO THE TIMING OF A SCREW. AS IN IF YOUR COMP IS THREADED DOWN AS FAR AS IT CAN GO AND THE TOP/CENTER OF IT IS AT THE 8 O'CLOCK POSITION WHEN LOOKING AT IT, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GET THAT EXTRA 1/4 TURN OUT OF IT, BACK IT OFF UNTIL ITS AT THE 12 O'CLOCK POSITION AGAIN. LIKEWISE IF YOU HAVE THE COMP THREADED DOWN TO THE POINT THAT IS CANNOT MOVE INSIDE OF YOUR SLIDE, BACK IT OFF A TURN. IT IS A THREADED OBJECT, TIMING IN ANY SENSE IS THE SAME, LIKE HIGH END FIREARMS WHERE THE USE OF A SLOTTED SCREW IS CHOSEN FOR AESTHETIC REASONS. WHEN ALL OF THE SLOTS ARE ORIENTED TO THE SAME DEGREE, THE SCREWS ARE PROPERLY TIMED.

    I was not familiar with Vibra-tite VC-3 and I always go to the spec sheet.
    Of great interest is the resistance to lubricants and cleaning solvents. Also temperature degradation.
    Here is what I found on the internet.
    https://www.vibra-tite.com/threadloc...-3-threadmate/
    Chemical resistance Offers resistance to most solvents (acts as a partial corrosion barrier)
    Operational temperature range -65˚F to 165˚F (-54˚C to 74˚C) For other temperature applications, please contact us
