Cannot remove OEM mag tube

various cheeses

Recommended Posts

I've been heating this thing for the past hour and a half now and it's out far enough that the handguard retaining ring is able to spin around but it's a brick wall now. I'm seeing these other threads where everyone is saying minimal torque is required. Maybe my heat gun is garbage? It's a 1200W one.


What I assume was threadlocker smoke was coming out of the mag tube at one point, but not for the past 45 minutes.
