RR the 5/8x24 is the thread dia. and pitch, the other numbers associated with the description means it will fit a barrel of .650-.750, (I assume)

Why not take the gun to the smith and let him order the brake, thats his job. To make sure the brake he orders fits your barrel. I stock all the sizes of Shrewd brakes, and my own custom brake. I'm sure a smith who installs brakes has some in stock.
