Removing Gas block
I have an 11.5 BCM upper with a Midwest gas block. I want to change the rail, so I am attempting to remove the gas block. The 3/32 hex nuts are red loctited in, and I have only been able to get the middle one out. Any suggestions on techniques to remove the other 2?
heat? (tried some heat with a heat gun)
solvent to dissolve the red loctite?
drill out the other 2 and just get a new gas block?
I have basically turned one hex key into a candy cane.... and snapped another.
BCM gear is very well put together!
PS, the old rail is the MI T-10
the new one is a Larue LT-10, which I prefer the profile for
Got the screws out!
Used an ideal heat gun, for about 1 min or so, and heated the sides of the MI block. the screws broke loose, without melting the red locktite,
