Make sure it is not pinned or welded, such as those on 14.5" bbls for civvie sales from Bushie et al.


If that is the case, you will have to cut the FS off. End of story.

I've used two pieces of wood for padding and chucked up the front sight base in a vise to do a couple. Also just had somebody hold down the upper on the kitchen table with dish towels as padding. Either way, go slow and use your head.

Kroil it the night before at least. It will soak and make it a lot easier.

Hold the barrel down on two pieces of 2x4.

It will come right off.

This is the product description for Kroil on the MidwayUSA website

Kroil (The Oil that Creeps) is used by the most accuracy-obsessed benchrest shooters to keep their barrels clean. Kroil creeps below the fouling in your barrel, allowing you to knock it out easily with a patch or brush. Kroil also displaces moisture, dissolves and prevents rust and can even be used as a lubricant.

I have used it to remove copper and lead fouling, works great. Have a good one!

+1 on that. And it's not just 14.5" barrels. If it's a postban version of any lenght with a muzzle brake, it'll be silver soldered or pinned and welded. Unless it's the RRA press on brake, in which case you'll have to have the barrel threaded.
