    Has anyone removed the muzzle brake from their Ruger? I’m having trouble getting mine off.

    Not sure why you would want to. But I have not tried to take mine off.

    I’m not worried about the recoil. Just trying to save my ears.

    We take a lot of them off. Makes a huge difference in noise. Get a crescent on the nut and a rod thru the slots. It will break loose but its a bi$$$.

    What direction does the nut turn when facing the muzzle? I assume clockwise but it would not budge when I tried it. I just want to make sure before I get real serious with it.

    If youre looking "down the barrel" then it should be counter clockwise to take it off

    I was able to remove it. The jam nut tightens up against the brake. I used a long rod through the slots in the brake and a 7/8 wrench on the jam nut. Hold the brake steady with the rod and turn the jam nut clockwise when looking at it from the muzzle. The rifle came with a thread protector to put on after you remove the brake.

    Don't think mine came with the protector

    It was in the small box that the bolt was in.

    JJohnson is spot on. I removed mine too after my ears about exploded.
