I have a threaded compensator on a 580 series. The unit came with a jam nut to keep it tight. It had been tight for several trips to the range, but last time out, the compensator started to rotate while I was unaware of why my groups were all over the place. I didn't notice it was loose till I got home and was cleaning the rifle. What is the best way to get a threaded compensator to hold tight, until and unless I want to take it off? I thought of blue Loctite, but I suspect the barrel can get hot enough to melt Loctite. What about some kind of washer between the jam nut and the compensator?

Not sure of the release temp of the blue loctite, but the red is around 500-600 degrees. Barrel wil never get that hot (at least- it shouldn't unless you're trying to burn it up).
I'd use the red; if you ever need to remove it you can just heat it with a torch, it won't damage the steel components.

Does the crush washer go between the jam nut and the compensator or in place of using the Jam nut?
