Installing a Kimber muzzle brake on Montana

I want to purchase a Kimber muzzle brake for a Montana and install myself. Anyone done this? Guidance or thoughts? The brakes come with a tool to help tighten it down, is there a need for any anti-cease grease or other such goop or just screw it on and tighten? Thanks in advance

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois CHAPN. I'm sorry I can't offer any help with your rifle, all my Kimbers are handguns.

How about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership?

CHAPN, welcome to the site from Tennessee. I have a Kimber rifle but have no clue how your muzzle brake should be installed.
Rifle guys should be along shortly.

Which bRake? Aren’t all theirs thread on? The issue is insuring that the bRake is con centric to the bore to prevent a bullet strike. Like a flash hider or bRake on an AR I use anti seize and torque to spec. When accuracy decreases I want to remove the brake and clean the carbon that gets trapped between the crown and brake.

Installing a Kimber muzzle brake on Montana

It is a Kimber muzzle brake for the correct caliber threaded barrel Montana. If I read the instructions correctly it is a simple screw on job and nothing else required. Does this sound correct?

The barrel of the Montana is factory threaded and I will purchase a factory Kimber muzzle brake for the appropriate caliber. The brake comes with an installation tool, looks like a rod which slips through one of the brake's holes to tighten it down. So, Yes I have the tool to install and remove the brake. It does not come with a crush cup or anti seize grease but the brake has uniform ports all around it so I don't believe it needs a crush cup.

Agreed. That brake is like the KDF which does need indexing to direct gases to your desired location/direction. Personally I would use anti seize (as i do with my KDF) because of the fouling that will build between the crown and rear wall of the brake, so that I can remove and clean easily. Just periodically check the brake for snugness.

But it is likely not a high volume of fire rifle like an AR15 would be.

Well, the factory Kimber muzzle brake arrived and was installed. It made my groups tighten up nicely.
