I just purchased an Entreprise "Zero Climb" muzzle brake to mount on to my IMBEL threaded barrel. It screws on easily but when hand tighten (bottomed out) it is about 15 degrees over timed. Should the brake be timed (torqued)and silver soldered or is it OK to back off and, while indexed properly, silver solder? It is very easy to turn and may be hard to keep indexed while heating up. Please advise.
