I'm trying to get the muzzle break off of my carbine and I was wondering if it's reverse threaded or not?

Post pics of it and ill tell if it is or not. I doubt it is though. They usually tighten them dang things on at high levels of torque.

my Bushmaster has RH threads. find a proper sized wrench and some way to safely hold the barrel, and padded so as not to mark up the barrel. might need some penetrating oil too if it's been on there a while. like MarlinMan said, quite a bit of torque on the thing.

Where are you from?...reason I ask is that some states require the muzzle brake to be pinned and welded. Bushy makes a lot of those post-ban configs.

JPyle may have a point. if it's pinned and welded, it would have to be removed by other measures and could explain why it's hard to remove. some barrel lengths or states compliances may require the muzzle break to be pinned and welded. good catch there JPyle.

It was the same at the other end of a Bushmaster when a buddy tried to remove the commercial RE. We barely got it off because of all the gunk on the threads. Not saying that's your problem, at least I hope not, who knows what barrel heat would do to thread sealer!
