I have a couple of questions regarding a new bushy I've been working on lately.
First, how in the heck do I remove the stock buffer tube (fiberlite collapsable style stock)? I have already torn the nipple off of a DPMS buffer tube wrench trying to unscrew the darn lock nut. I'm guessing it must be staked on or else that is the strongest LOC-TITE on the planet. Please advise if you've experienced such a beast.
Second, what is the proper tecnique to use when installing a threaded A2 flash suppressor? Do I need to use a specific torque value? Do I need to use LOC-TITE or anti-sieze or something else? Is there a trick to getting the A2 non-birdcage portion of the suppressor to line up on the bottom side of the barrel?
Thanks in advance,
Remember lefty loosey righty tighty (from the back of the rifle)
Ok now on to the fix. If you have a heat gun (looks like a HD hair dryer) heat the lock ring this will get any loc-tite moving. Don't cook the hell out of it, just enough to get it warm/hot. Hopefully someone din't use the red loc-tite on it if so you will have to cook the hell out of it to break the thread locker. I don't know that that may do to your finish on the receiver though (some one chime in here).
