    What kind of lubricant are you guys using when screw your suppressors on to keep them for galling?

    Montana Extreme seems to work the best of the stuff I have seen.

    Short Answer: automotive anti-seize lubricant

    Long Answer: Contact your preferred vendor and find out which specific anti-seize compound they recommend for the two specific metals involved.

    This is what I use as well. Bought it several years ago to assemble an upper, use it for suppressors and shotgun choke tubes as well.

    Actually any lube or oil is fine for the common slightly loose joining specs of a can and host threads. If you have a tight fit between them then the anti-seize varities work well including the mil spec tw-25 white lithium grease.
