How do you get a buffer tube off a lower. I can't get it!!!

Mac,

Thanks

An A2 tube or a tele-stock tube? If it is an A2 tube, from the factory, it will take A LOT of torque to get it off......

A2 from the factory. How should I get it off?

Just wrap some duct tape around the tube and get some vise-grips and you'll be all set. Lefty loosey, righty tighty.

I have seen more than one pre 94 with RED locktite on the threads.
Use chuck pads, put the receiver in a vice(don't crush it), and use a quality wrench on the flat at the rear of the tube, a little muscle, and you should have no problem.

Put your shoulder into it. Quit being a sissy boy.

I can't get it. I heard a weird pop sound and I thought I had it, but nope the grip just loosened up. There is no way in hell I am going to get that damn thing off.

If you don't want to scratch it up try some of those rubber strap wrenches. I have used them to get valves off of co2 and nitrogen tanks. And they are usually torqued on pretty damn tight with red locktite.

I already scratched the tube, made it kinda hard to get the stock on, but I don't care. I'll just leave it.

I GOT IT!!!!

Now how do I get the pin that stops the buffer to stay in. It has this spring thing.

Wow, I am smart!!!

Took long enough.

From the instructions over in AR15 BIY forum

Thread the rifle/carbine buffer tube slowly into the receiver... taking care with the takedown pin spring. The tube should be threaded in just up to the buffer hole.... and then insert the buffer stop pin and spring:

Then thread the tube a little more, so that it holds the pin in place, but does not touch the center part of the pin and bind its movement:
