Had a fight with a crusher

On the recommendation of our friend Zee, I have had a Linear Muzzle Brake/Compensator in my shopping basket for a while. Finally made the purchase and it arrived today. Removing the flash suppressor was easier than I thought, but the crush washer, not so much.
It would come up about three threads and no further. I tried twisting, a little oil, it wouldn't go any further. Had to carefully take a set of dykes to it. New device went on easily, snugged down and is ready to rock.
I am wondering, is this normal for a crush washer? Others just came of with no issue. I mean its a gun that gets shot, even dragged around outside, so dings don't bother me, but buggering barrel threads isn't a good idea.

    Sounds like your crush washer crushed, and made the hole smaller in the middle of the doughnut! :tooth:

    I get that, have had them go from drop in place to finesse it off, but this one was in place tight

    Oh man, I should have seen that coming!!

    But is that normal? I have only removed two, one could have fallen off, the other a little coaxing. This one I all but had to tear/cut off
