I have tried to contact RRA technical support for somewhat of a simple question. Steve is constantly busy. They should really get that guy some help! I went to their website looking for a feedback url or email and havent located one. Anybody have an email address to RRA? They need to post that on their website too... Come on RRA get in the 21st century...
Dont just post ads on your web site.

Ever thought of just posting the question here?

Posted the question maybe in the wrong forum. SO here goes: I have an RRA Varmint flat top A4. The front sling swivel came off at the range. All parts were retrieved. The problem is I cant get the gas block off to remove the one piece hand guard. I have completely removed the 2 set screws on the gas block. I think that is all there is. I dont see any additional screws or drift pins? I've pounding the gas block with a rubber mallet but it wont budge. I am afraid to use a bigger hammer fearing permanent damage. If and when I get the gas block off I feel a strap wrench will loosen the 1 piece hand guard. MTC(SS)

Use a heat gun on the gas block. When the block is placed/aligned, the allen screws are loctited into place, which allows some of the loctite to seep between the block and barrel, which makes pulling the gas block a real bitch to remove.

I would'nt touch it as that may void the warranty. I would contact RRA first.That's just me and my 2 bits
