I've got the ARMS Aimpoint QD mount and riser.
I used the loc-tite that came with the mount and loc-tited the riser to the mount.
What do I do to take it off?
I'm mounting it onto a BB gun and I want to know if it's worth paying $50 for some "knock-off" mount or, simply taking the riser off.
Can it be heated with a lighter without harming the finish?
Was it blue loc-tite?
Blue loc-tite on threads, use the right sized tool with a good handle and give it a hard twist.
Blue loc-tite holding the surfaces together, use a vice and brass hammer. A good strike in the sheer direction, and it should come off.
Red loc-tite, maybe a thermo-nuclear blast.
heat to 325 degrees.
I know that isn't true.
I've removed a paint-ball feed neck with red loc-tite on it.
It just took a lighter, heated it up - and screwed it right out...
Can that be done with a common cigarette lighter? *No, I don't smoke*
Will it harm the finish if it is heated to that temperature?
