Finally installed a 7 round titanium tube (my experience)


Recommended Posts

So I ordered a CarrierComp titanium tube in mid March and got it about 2 weeks ago so (about 2.5 months). After reading SD's instructions and watching a couple of videos, I bought a vise, Wagner $39 heat gun, and 243 loctite. I preheated the heat gun for few minutes on max, then applied the heat for about 2-3 minutes. That's all it took. I was wearing nitrile gloves to keep hands clean and extra grip. I was able to untwist the tube with one hand with minimal effort (I guess they didn't put much loctite on mine at the factory). I cleaned the receiver with a brass brush, put a little bit of 243 on the threads, installed the new follower, spring, and reinstalled snap ring with snap ring pliers. It was a lot easier than it looked like some of you said.


PS: Stupid autocorrect keeps changing loctite to lactate. If I missed one, just wanted to mention that no location occurred during the process ;)
