How to remove a Mark I muzzle brake?

As mentioned in previous happy post, I scored a Mark I with muzzle brake. Before I crank down on a 56yr old part that probably has never been removed, do I just twist it off or do I remove that steel pin first?

Just curious, as I want to accuracy test it with and w/o the brake (I'm told it may negatively affects accuracy of these. Although since the front sight is on the brake I may have a tough time testing it w/o it!)

Thank you

Try it with the brake on-see if its a good shooter first!

If you want to accuracy test with and without, shoot it with first.

I suspect that if you took the pin out, the front sight would easily slip out once the brake is removed. I don't know if the brake is pinned on, but I suspect some heat and force would be required. If you don't want to permanently damage anything, best leave it up to a gunsmith.
