...didn't work too well.  I basically tried to use a screwdriver and hammer to push back the metal.  Basically just flattened it.  Any suggestions?

Pipe wrench - seriously like a 10" one is perfect.  Loctite needs some heat to make the nut loose if you want to try that first.

Are you talking about the locking nut on your buffer tube? Did you stake it or stalk it?



Best thing to do is use a cheater pipe.

I don't really have any usable vise to put the lower in but it looks like my wrench is taking a chunk out of the groove.

Put the flat portion of the receiver against the left hand and the pipe wrench on the castle nut in your right.  Put both hands in between your legs at about the knee.  You want your hands forming about a 30 degree angle, like a V.  Push both the left hand and right hand together.  I have done 6 or so like that and it always works for me.  If there is any amount of Lock-tite, you may have to heat it up some.

I'll try that, thanks.
