So we went out the range today and shot 150 rounds through my new rifle.

When I got home I noticed that there was a space between the receiver and the handguard; no bueno. Tightened it up nice. I didn't tighten it when I got it because I just assumed it would be fine. Guess not.

But I'm worried that maybe I should have tightened the barrel nut, too. Everything "seems" solid but now I'm kind of doubtful. confused2

If the barrel nut is the slightest bit loose, the barrel will have play in it. You'll know.

OK thanks for explaining.
There is no play in the barrel at all, so that's a good sign, right?

Palmetto typically uses a lot of loctitie on the barrel nut. I have to use a torch to get it off most times.
