Mine continues to turn slightly after firing despite the use of loctite. I might replace with a Barking Spider or something. So annoying because the gun is so sweet otherwise.

Would it be possible to use some sort of spring washer or crush washer between the endcap & barrel or barrel threads to keep it from backing off? I use a thin o-ring on my suppressor between the thread adapter and barrel. Seems to help a lot.

That's a good suggestion. I'm going to try that and see how it goes.

Evo 3 S2 faux suppressor issue
« Reply #48 on: June 15, 2019, 01:51:08 AM »
I removed mine today, I thoroughly degreased the barrel threads, the castle screw threads, and areas where the back of the nut gets pulled into the shroud piece while tightening. Added a liberal amount of blue loctite, made sure none got in the muzzle and tightened the thing as tight as it?ll go with a socket wrench and the HB ind. tool. If it comes loose, the only alternative would be red loctite I guess. But the thing is, maybe I?m seeing it wrong, but I think the shroud can in fact move slightly clockwise or counter clockwise even if the castle not  is tightened down, because I think it?s only  friction and not the threads themselves that is keeping it from moving. Not positive but if true, it?s an issue CZ should address.

I think you're right that it's friction holding it in place. It makes sense from when you take it apart. Disappointing in a way because of that movement. A spacer might help, but I'm sure it would damage the noosprey. I think I'm going to just get a compensator or something for mine.

I'm pretty sure the evo was never intended to be wearing a fake silencer in the first place.  I doubt that there will be any design changes to the gun to make sure they stay straight(er).
When people ignorant of guns make gun laws, you end up with ignorant gun laws.

Bought the KAW Valley linear comp. I'll update when it gets here. If it works out, might replace with a Barking Spider. I have one on my .300 pistol and it's sweet.

I just got the “loosening issue”. I took 2 nickels, clamped them together in a vice grip, and ground them into a “T” shape for a wrench. I put a small o-ring on the barrel threads and cranked the nut down. So far so good. Now to get this binary trigger to work 100%...

Noticed today mine did a small rotation as well. Was able to hand tighten back. Hope a fix is in the works seems like it’s an issue brewing. My gun guy is a silencerco dealer and he has the tools but it’s still annoying if you are fixing instead of shooting.

Pisses me off, my one week old 210 round Micro started this crap on the first range trip.

Save yourself some annoyance and just replace it. KAW Valley Linear Comp, Spike's Tactical Barking Spider both fit. I've used both on mine.
