I recently purchased a Fostech Origin 12 and a V6 muzzle break for it. I’ve been trying to locate a jam nut to use instead of loctite. I’ve taken it to two different gun shops and neither one could find a jam nut. Can anyone please assist me with my quest? Thank you for your time and efforts.

I've never seen one, but mechanically, a jam nut will throw the brake off center. It's better to use the shoulders on the two parts to keep it all straight. A jam nut doubles the chance of error.
Having said all that. ACE Hardware has a jam nut assortment box of all sizes.

The only thing you need to know, is the thread spec.
From quick memory (so verify) a 12ga typically runs 22mm Diameter x .75 Pitch (M22x.75).

Found them at the manufacturer for $6.
They won't let me buy from the UK, but if you get one can you get 2 for me and ship them over?

Thanks
Michael

Welcome to the forum Michael.

As you can see this post is only a month old, but our OP was what we call a "Drive-By". They stay online for a few minutes, if they don't get instant satisfaction, they move on.

Cheers
