I'm installing a Nordic Comp but can't get the ported side to be on top. What's the trick? Is there somewhere where I can loosen the barrel and twist it to bring the ports to the top?

I don't have much knowlege of the Nordic comps because they're pretty new, but I can tell you trying to twist the barrel to bring the ports topside is a very bad idea.

I'm assuming if they thread on like any other comp/flashider, you'll need to use a crush or peel washer to get it aligned, or a very thin timing nut.

It came with a peel washer. How do I remove a layer? You can't even tell that it has layers.

Also, you said the Nordic comps are pretty new. What have you heard about them?

Screw on an "indexing nut" before you put the comp on. Allign the comp. Tighten the nut up against the comp. Got a link to Nordic? I did a Google and nothing came up.

I've heard a few guys using them on 22's that like them pretty good. That's about all.

Sorry but I doubt I can help you more with indexing the comp. That's pretty basic. You probably have a crush washer if it's sort of concave. The comp will tighten up against it and will flatten out as it indexes.

I found their website, Nordic Components - Contract machining of precision machined aluminum parts

I knew this particular comp was new. I was told that they do mainly .22 comps. But this one was designed specifically for a .223.

I wasn't able to find this comp on any of the websites either. I have a buddy that I think knows the owner. He picked up quite a few of them and gave me one. It's made out of 416 stainless steel. I used a lighter to delaminate the washer and got the comp to line up perfectly. I then used Blue Loctite to secure it.

I'll get to try it out Sunday. I let you guys know what I think. It'll be compared to what I had on before, a Smith Vortex.
