    I have a DPMS MK12 barrel and a YHM flash hider with a crush washer to install..
    When I torque it down it just goes past where it should be for timming....
    Can I go a full revolution on the flash hider with the crush washer?

    No you can't do another rev. You just need a timing washer to time it right. Pm me I have a kit. Jon

    I actually bought a shim kit from triggershims.com. But it didn't have enough to work. Thinking if putting on a different flash hider, one that dosent need to be timmed.

    Well most of the time you can either use crush washer or timing washer and get it right. I usually just put the flashhider in the lathe and trim till it times right. Let me know if you need help. Jon
