Ok my buddy just got his new A3 upper thanks to ADCO, now I have done this 3 times before but the damn barrel nut is stuck, so I want to make sure I am not the problem here. Facing the upper assembly from the muzzle end I would want to push the wrench up and to the left to loosen it correect its lefty loosey from the front of the assembly?

With the upper receiver laying in front of you, muzzle pointing to the right, you want to pull down on the wrench to loosen the nut.
