Take the barrel out and mount it in a barrel vise right by the muzzle device.Damn... I used a heat gun and no luck in removing the factory flash hider. Found this thread... and apparently I'm on the right track? Just need to somehow get more strength into it?
How are you guys locking it into the vice without damaging the upper/barrel?
I’m interested in the Reaction Rod comment, I don’t believe the AR15 Geissele reaction rod is the same bolt face pattern as the SCAR 16 and does not work, although really useful for ARs. Is the AR10 Reaction Rod the same pattern as the SCAR 17/20?I’ve removed all mine 16,17 and 17s and replaced them with Surefire Warcomps. Apply heat using a heat gun , use a reaction rod and they all came off with ease
