    I have a chance to buy a Savage 516, 308, bolt action pistol.

    The 516 has a muzzle brake.

    I have a Suppressor, requiring 5/8x24 threads.

    If I remove brake are the threads 5/8x24?

    ====================

    I called Savage.com, customer Service: tech questions and the answer I got was: ????

    I haven't a clue.

    But .308 muzzle breaks / flash suppressors are normally 5/8"x24TPS.
    They will have either a .635", or .735" thread length to the shoulder.

    But I don't know if savage followed convention or not.

    Thread length from the muzzle to the stop shoulder on the barrel where it tightens down.
