I ordered a Midwest industries 3 chamber muzzle brake like the one used on the M400 and a VG6. The VG6 arrived and is beautiful but the Midwest industries came in an opened package covered in oil. The threads have a spot or two that the coating is scratched off. For a $20 muzzle brake I’m not too ****** off but I would like to put it on my Remington 700 LTR but I’m kind of scared of messing up the threads on my rifle.

Screw it on gently and if you encounter resistance before it's all the way on, take it off and toss it or return it.

I would tell you to chase the threads but I have no idea where you'd get something that big to do it.

I tried to screw it on and I didn’t get some resistance about a quarter of the way on. By the time I felt the resistance it screwed past it and went the rest of the way on without a problem. I took it back off and looked at the threads and had a spot where it rubbed some of the coating off. I purchased from Primary arms so I think I will reach out to them and bring it to their attention.

Return it

Typical M.Ind craftsmanship.
Send it back.

Install the Aero Precision VG6 & don't look back.
