muzzle brake question

Hello.

Im looking at doing a bit more work on my M 305. Im wondering, before I put the visa card into action. Can I put a Smith enterprise Good iron US Coast Gurad/Navy muzzle brake on and just use my metric castle nut? Will it just slide onto my barrel?

Thanks

As n1fe stated the simple answer is; yes.

Actually you have no choice but to use the same nut you took off unless you re-thread the barrel to SAE threads.

No reason to spend the money on a die or having someone re-thread it for you.

Suggest getting a spare metric castle nut (or two), then bag and tag them to prevent getting them mixed up.
