I have a rifle that i believe the factory thread pattern is 9/16-28. I am wondering if a muzzle brake that is threaded to fit 9/16-24 will work on my gun? Will i jusst need more spacers, or am I going to have to get my barrel threaded to work?

It will not work. Your choices would be to either find a brake manufacturer with the correct thread or to have your barrel shortened and re-threaded to 9/16 x 24

there is 24 threads per inch or 28 threads per inch.
they are not the same,one is a finer thread pitch.

Like others have noted; the 24 or 28 is not the length of the threads on the muzzle brake so spacers will not help. It is the TPI (threads per inch).
