Removing Ruger 450 muzzle brake

Postby buckeye3405 » Sat Apr 20, 2024 10:17 am

I have a Hynrid 46 suppressor coming from silencer co for my Ruger scout 450 Bushmaster. Anyone have detailed instructions on how to remove the factory Ruger muzzle brake? It seems to have some kind of nut which is separate from the brake itself.

It'*s sometimes referred to as either a jam nut or set nut, between the brake and the barrel. You need a wrench that fits it while being narrow enough not to influence either the brake or the barrel. Bicycle wrenches like this

work well if you don'*t own a set of flat wrenches. Anyway, you screw the jam nut away from the brake to un-jam it and both should rotate off normally, after that. In some extreme cases, you may have to warm the brake if its been on there for some length of time, to aid in it releasing.
