Hi,
I have a new NM RRA Lower with a Flat top upper. It was shipped put together. Now everyone knows that RRA fits very tight. Any ideas how to get them apart?? Atleast break it open?? Man it's really tight. Thanks for all your help in advance.
Paul

If you have a lower receiver block, use it to steady the rifle in a vise. Tap out the takedown pin, supporting the barrel just in case. You should be able to kind of gently pull down on the barrel and open the receivers up. Keep your hand on the lower to steady it, so no surprises of it slipping off the vise.

Problem is that there is no barrel. Taht is the trouble... Nothing to get leverage on.

Use a large wooden dowel as a "barrel" if you don't have a barrel that you could pseudo install to do the task. Be sure to oil the hell out of the upper/lower at the contact points in an effort to get some lube in the gaps to make things move a bit easier.
