Howdy folks, just bought a Riley Defense RAK 47 (polymer version) with compensator (slanted akm version), this thing is on way tighter than I thought, looked at all the videos of other ak's and it seems you should just press the button on the front sight block and twist and it should come off and it's not, starting to think these threads got loctite or I hope to god isn't welded on, anyone dealt or removed the Riley Defense AK compensators before? Thanks

If its welded, there would be obvious marks visible. Is it second hand? If so, its possible that the previous user simply neglected to clean the threads after firing, which would eventually lead to carbon build up and effectively lock them up. You could maybe soak the threads in some solvent over night and hope that loosens them.

It's brand new rifle, no second hand

if its standard AK, you are aware that muzzle threads are left handed/reverse threaded.
...meaning left turning tightens, right turning loosen.

you understand that they are reverse threads , so you may be trying to tighten thinking you are loosening
