I have access to a press like this...


Does anyone have a good description or pics on exactly how I can press off the FSB of my WASR? I'd like to thread the barrel and I know to do it right I need to press off the FSB. I'm paranoid that I'll mess it up.

Thanks! Excellent description.

I thought it would pretty much go like that. After threading, does it go on easier than it came off? I would think that you could bugger up the threads that way. I won't have to press it back on?

You may or may not have to press it back on-it depends on how tight the press fit is to begin with. You may be able to get by with tapping the base back on with a hammer/block of wood.

When I replaced the FSB on my SAR 2, I did not have a press, and it took a hell of a lot of pounding with a wood block and a five pound hammer to get my new base on.

Here's what I use. It's an automotive bearing splitter. I have my own but you might be able to
'rent' one (free of charge by putting a deposit on it) at a local auto parts store.
