Factory pistol lower from rock river. No castle nut. How can I get it off without destroying it?

Twist it counter-clockwise until it threads off?

I don't know about their pistols, but I have removed a couple of their carbine buffer tubes. It wasn't easy. They use some kind of thread locker or glue on the threads. It is going to take quite a bit of force. Support the receiver properly or you'll likely break it.

Good luck.

They use red and a heat gun to over 400 degrees will do it.  Won't harm anything, remove the handgrip, though, before heating.

Use the "strap wrench"-  I used one w/ the bike chain.  Make sure you wrap your tube around w/ wet cloth so it doesn't get damage then tighten the chain.  Tube was very on tight.  And make sure you turn counter clockwise though.    I asked the same question to RRA tech, and he told me to do the above,

BTW, I didn't use heat gun and didn't use vise (nice to have) either.
