Barrel Removal

Postby BattleAxe on Tue 09 Nov, 2010 9:37 pm

How do you remove a 98B barrel? I'm looking to get mine Cerakoted and if there's any special equipment involved I want to make sure the tech has it. I've seen the guys work and its good but I have this thing about allowing other people to wrench on my stuff. I'd sleep better if I did it myself providing that I don't need any specialized gear... I'm an aircraft mechanic so I have an extensive tool collection.

If you remove the barrel I would suspect you would need a way to hold the rifle (soft vice jaws) a castle nut wrench for the barrel nut, and a torque wrench. Not to mention wrenches to get the muzzle brake off. I would suggest calling Barret to see if they have the nut wrench and jaws and to verify the torque settings.
Lack of planning on your part does NOT constitute an emergency on mine.

I think I'll just get the tools I need. At the rate I'm shooting I'll be going through some barrels anyway.
