98 Barrel Keeps Unscrewing

I have a killhouse headhunter barrel on my Sierra One, which is screwed into a techt ifit kit, that keeps unscrewing during games. Both backs have orings on them to keep a friction fit, and are both always tightened down as much as possible. Despite this, they will keep unscrewing. It also has an M16 front sight clamped to it, and an apex tip if that makes a difference.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Not sure why it happenes but I've had the issue in the past. One thing I've had work to stop it was putting a wrap of electrical tape on the 98 threads and it keeps them from moving.

Since the 98 threads are so massive they like to unscrew. Wrap a wrap of electrical tape around them to take ups some of the slop, kind of like how you may use Teflon tape on an air fitting that leaks.

Ok thank you, that make a lot more sense to me.

Tighten the two front body screws then check and see if the problem persists. I found if I didn't have mine pretty tight, certain barrels would eventually work themselves free. Usually heavier barrels. If that doesn't help a little tape should do the trick.
