I think I understand the concept of this, and I know you have to shoot the rifle to get it "right"-where is the best place to start?

Larry,

Bring it by the store and I will make sure it gets timed correctly.   Every brake is going to be different, depending on the hole pattern.

Screw it on as far as it will go and then back it off until it looks like it's lined up correctly. Fill whatever gap there is with jb weld. Done and done...

Being as it's your first AR, you might hold off on the JB weld till you get a 2nd AR   :o (And don't worry, the 2nd one always gets here faster than the first one!)
I got a fever, and the only prescription is more 1911's .

Is that the trick for winning?  If so I need to find JB weld in a gallon size.......
