Muzzle Brake Removal, .375 Hawkeye African

I want to remove the Muzzle Brake that came on my Ruger .375 Hawkeye African. Will I need a vice? or will this spin off without a vice? If you have actually done this, please reply, no guessing. Thanks.

Hmm, I thought the African was like the Guide gun (which I own) and it came with a muzzle brake, weighted solid (so you could remove the brake and keep the POI) and a thread protector if you didn't want to use either.
Did you buy this one new or used? Just curious! I really like the look of the African and was considering another 375 Ruger.

Hi Did you take the brake off
If you did how did you find it afterwards I would really appreciate your insight on this
I have a 375 Ruger Hawkeye
I'm wondering if it will be worth the expense to have a brake installed
I'm thinking with the a brake and what I've been hand loading it will be one of my all time favorites It's very close at this time
Thanks
