Im new to Ar-15's. I have a Rock River Arms and im trying to install a Magpul M93B. I have the stock removal tool but I cant get it to move. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

RRA might use loctite on the castle nut. Heating it up might help you get it off.

Is it staked?

Also check to make sure it isn't staked in place. And if neither of those work then put your lower in the freezer. The alum of the tube shrinks while the steel of the nut expands. Either that or something like it. When I slapped my Bushy in the freezer the nut became very loose so I tightened it up and now it won't even move under serious force

EDIT: Grats on the Magpul purchase! I have one and its super sexy.

I think RRA only stakes their LE rifles and doesn't use Locite, you might call them or check their forum here. There was another customer with the same problem posting on their forum, and RRA helped him right away.
