I am thinking about replacing the stock muzzle device with a PWS CQB. Has anyone pulled a stock muzzle device off? Did KT use loctite? Did you have to heat the threads? How did you hold the barrel while removing the device? I want to make sure I don't screw anything up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

no they didn't use loctite...flash hider removes quite easily. i used a gun rest to remove but put into a vice to install new compensator. if you do not want to scratch things just use one side a zip lock bag to cover flash hider then use a wrench or ar15 muzzle tool to remove. i installed a sjc titan which instructed to use loctite but didn't use...just put some grease on threads and used a crush washer to install.

I, also, removed the A2 bird cage.
I put on a Silencerco muzzle brake, because I use a Silencerco Omega suppressor on my RFB.

I use the PWS FSC30, and it reduced the recoil of the RFB almost to the level of recoil from a .556/.223! It's a great break for this rifle.
My hunter only came with the thread protector on it and it wasn't very tight.
I put a SEI brake on mine before firing the first round out of it.
The U.S. Coast Guard uses them on their AR-10's so I figured they work well.

Stops muzzle climb dead and reduces recoil enough you can shoot it all day.
No vents on the bottom so you can shoot it prone without a face-full of dirt.
Produces a lot of side concussion blast for bystanders but not the shooter.

The main point to make is, that the RFB needs either a brake or suppressor to make it fun to shoot, not a flash-hider.

How is the blast coming off of the brakes?

I have a race gun AR with a Precision Armament M4-72 and the blast is outright abusive. Even with it being a 5.56. Its like getting slapped in the face with every shot, and from a 16" rifle too. Where as my FAL has a PA M11 which has nowhere near the blast. The big difference being the M4-72 has baffles that turn the gas back towards the user, while the M11 had straight baffles. The M11 is also comically large....and would look even more ridiculous on the RFB than it does on the FAL.

Ive been wanting to brake the RFB to get faster follow up shots like I can with my FAL (which recoils like a 5.56) but am afraid of getting beat up by blast with the brake being so much closer to my face.

yeah the reverse venting design on the m4-72 makes it a little more abusive. the sjc titan isn't as bad in my opinion, but still loud. i'm actually using an aeroknox ae/01 brake currently. i know larue offers sjc in 308. aeroknox offers 300blk 5/8-24.

I had a AAC 51t 3 prong flash hider / suppressor mount. I removed it and am going to sell it. I replaced it with a JCB Solutions brake.

Hows that work for felt recoil and muzzle climb?
I can't give you an update. I have been bedridden ever since I installed the JCB Solutions brake.

I am not sure just when I will be able to report on it, but I will do it as soon as I can.

I shot 14 rounds through it today while trying to set the gas block to optimum and zeroing a new optic at 50 yards. Recoil is almost non-existent and muzzle climb was so little that I could not see it.. I am very pleased with the device.

Retired1, what model is that?
The only thing it looks like on the website is the 9mm Trident.

It is a Trident.

Mine is a .308. The .308 Trident is no longer listed on his website. I don't know why. I like mine. If you are interested, I suggest contacting him directly. JCB-Solutions is a one man shop He may have one extra or make one for you.
