[quote=D.Camilleri;184699]Does anyone know an effective way to release green loctite? My muzzle break was installed with green loctite and I would like to remove it without destroying it.

Put some of the same green Locktite on it, wait 10 minutes and it will be removable.

Then shut it down and the brake should come right off.

Clean the threads real good before assembly.

Remember, it is important to remove a break and clean the crown from time to time. This means, no lock tite. Just use a dab of anti seize or Copper grease.

Works great and won't hurt anything.

Good luck

This is the way my Smith does it when someone screws up and uses locktite on a muzzle break.

Hit both breaks with the hot air gun last night. Use 400 degree temp stick and got the breaks to come off. I didn't find any locktite residue, so maybe the smith didn't remember correctly. What I did find however is the crown on the barrel under the break, seems to be a straight cut counter bore about .125 deep. My other barrel had about an 11 degree angled crown under the brake. How critical is this and what is best.? Both brakes have an 11 degree crown on the out side.
