Default Gun smith or DIY project? Remington 700...

I recently bought a Remington 700 SPS AAC SD, which has a threaded barrel. So I'm looking for a compensator (or possibly a flash hider) for it.

But is it a simple screw on and go, or is there much more to it than that? Should I have a gun smith do it?

Are some brakes easier to install then others? Use lock-tight or no?

Can y'all recommend a good brake?

Use is for hunting mainly, but of course fun at the range as well.

As long as you can make sure it is aligned properly with the barrel you should be able to handle it.
Threadlock shouldn't be necessary if you have a crush washer. I like to use a wooden dowel to make damn well sure it is in alignment and the bullet will clear.

I like the Battle Comp compensators for my ARs. I don't know what threading your rifle barrel uses, but if it's the same as ARs then you should be good to go.

I have nearly no tools and wouldn't know what the crap I'm doing...

Going to the gun smith.

I spent some time looking for videos on how to install one but couldn't find one that made it look easy..

You can use math and a torque wrench to install it. It's a lot easier than some make it out to be.

but like what mountain man said about it being inline with the barrel...I wouldn't know other than by just looking at it.
And a lit of people I see drill out the center so the bullet will clear..I just wouldn't want to mess with that..

What MM was suggesting was useing a .308 dowel and making sure. Great idea.
So simple, yet so brilliant!!

Can you thread a nut onto a bolt? If you're installing it crooked you'll know because it will screw up the threads and it will be hard as hell to put on. You won't have to drill out the center if you get a decent quality product.

I personally like the AAC QD brakes.

Aries armament makes a great flash hider. No timing beaded, no proper aligning need, well maybe a tad. It's fully adjustable, you can have your Ports wherever you want them and best of all, the end enacted for a suppressor. So you can lock tight it on and not have to worry about having to take it off for a suppressor
