  • Do I need Rocksett?

    Posted by ipad_pilot on June 23, 2022 at 12:09 pm

    Surefire Warcomp came today and the instructions for mounting recommend using the included Rocksett to attach the device to the threads. With any luck I will be using this to attach a SOCOM 300 SPS in the near future. Assuming enough foot pounds are used when installing the warcomp, do I really need the Rocksett? I have been known to modify my rifles from time to time.

    Spend the $20 on a literal 40 lifetime supply for you and 2000 of your closest friends.

    It comes off in 3 minutes. And will save to getting a mount stuck in a suppressor.

    Rocksett is a good idea. Even when torqued to spec, I have had brakes come loose at inopportune times with suppressors mounted, especially when the can has gotten stuck. Rocksett isn’t hard to remove when needed, either.

    FYI the warcomp leaks due to lack of labyrinth seals and is considered a poor host for shooting supressed. Check Pew Science for testing details.

    Why would I follow the directions?

    Griffin Armament told me to torque only with theirs, no need for Rocksett… for what it’s worth — I think I still put a dab on my 308 R700 and AR but just torqued the 556 ones

    Torque is enough, when properly applied.

    That said, if the manufacturer not only recommends, but also provides it – I’m probably going to do what they say, just for warranty purposes.

    Me: I have this problem…(insert explanation)
    Them: did you use the thread locker we provided?
    Me: well, ….no?
    Them: we can repair it, but it will be at your expense, since you didn’t use the thread locker provided by us.

    Probably not, but putting a drop or two on there can’t hurt. You only need a little, otherwise if you ever need to remove the warcomp it’ll be a real pita.

    I use rocksett on all my brake, they’ve held rock solid regardless of how hot I’ve gotten my suppressors. When I’ve need to remove them I just let the brake sit over night in water and they twist right off.
