If you have access to a ultrasonic machine …..using plain tap water may help….. I doubt heat will do it based on the nature of this ceramic adhesive
which I heard is rated up to 2000...
Been watching the forum for a while …haven't posted much… just wanted to repeat what I heard in the past….
This FN forum is better than 24 or Sons of Anarchy…. great folks…Hope I don't miss the next episode...
Think it out..Don't force it too hard…It will sort out….Lots of collective minds here!
Keep us posted...
Agree 100%. If Rocksett is rated to 2000 degrees it would mean you would have to get it hotter than 2000 degrees to cause a heat related failure and at those temps you are probably f******g up the barrel.Don't heat it with a torch. Rocksett is not effected by heat. At most you are ruining the barrel by getting it to the point where it's red hot.
thanks Jeremy. I am however fed up with it and I am going to send the stupid thing in for them to fix it. At this point I'm getting close to opening threads on several forums because they won't return my phone calls.Kameron what you are experiencing is typical of AAC uppers. We have dealt with hundreds of them and there are only two options. First soak it in water for over 24 hours and then use about 70 pounds of torque to get it off. Second cut slits in the muzzle device to release pressure.
We have broke a few barrel nuts and twisted gas tubes on about 3 rifles out of the 300+ we have had. AAC puts an entire tube of Rockset on the threads when all you need is one drop. Don't heat it up because that only makes it stronger.
