Muzzle Brake

Okay this is my first attempt at a forum so please be gentle.
I talked the other day with a representative from Advanced Armament Co. about mounting my breakout 2.0 compensator to my scar 17s he assured me that I need to remove both the muzzle break and the lock nut and install it using the rocksett and tighten to 40-45 lbs. I didn't ask or hear if he said foot lbs or inch lbs. Please advise.

Hi there first time use of a forum so hopefully I'm going about this correctly. I'm needing to know how tight you tightened this? The rep from AAC said 40-45 lbs not sure if he means ft. lbs or inch lbs?
Please advise

Foot pounds. It is on the back of the container that the FH/MB comes in. It is also in the instructions for the Breakout 2.0

No need to double or tripple post either. You now have the answers to both of your post.

And I thought that the general consensus was that only flash hiders on the SCAR17 and not FH/MB combo. Now with the Breakout 2.0 it might be different but I am still unaware of whether it is a good idea for a MB specifically the Breakout 2.0 on the SCAR17.

There you have your own thread for your question.

No need to post in a thread that's been dead for 2 1/2 years. :?

And as you were told in the other thread, no need to post the same question more than once.

I've never seen or heard of a scope mount that needed anywhere near 40 ft lbs. Every scope mount I have ever installed was in the 30-50 inch pound range. But I am not familiar with the ACC mount.

OK now you are saying "scope mount". You need to clarify EXACTLY what you are trying to torque down. Is it a flash hider, brake, brake flash hider combo, or some other mount that AAC makes that I am unaware of?

Or are we talking about the Remington 700 AAC SD rifle and is that the "scope mount" that you are asking about?

Considering you are in the SCAR 17 forum and you are talking about the AAC mount, most of us are thinking Flash Hider or Brake or FH Brake combo because the SCAR already has the mounting for a scope on it.

Please clarify......

Brakeout 2.0 does not need to be timed so it can be installed and run the same as the Blackout flash hider on the 17. Screw it down, rocksett it and forget it, no shims required. :wink:

Based on his other post of the same thing, I think you had it right to start with.

Great, because I just bought two of them. One for my SCAR17 and the other for my A5M XP if I decide to put it on that. Maybe I'll keep it for my Remington 700 AAC SD. Seems silly to me to buy a rifle with a threaded barrel for a suppressor and then have to but an extra piece because the suppressor has no direct threading option. The only downfall on the AAC SDN6 that I have found so far. Gee, I wonder if I can just put the Brake in the Suppressor and then screw it on that way. Whadda ya thinkie???? Baffle strikes on the horizon.....

I have so many FH, Brakes, Combos from AAC that I can fill a small box with them......

All of this was merged since he posted both of his questions in two different threads dead for 2-2 1/2 years.
