how to remove stripped barrel nut

1717 Views 15 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  HK SD9 Tactical
My son bought a quad rail for his DPMS. Using a vice and wheeler armorers tool, we can't get the damn barrel nut off, even with alot of heat applied. We managed to strip all the recesses on the nut. After doing some research I was going to dremel the outside ring off, and go with a big ass pipe wrench next. Anyother suggestions.

Sounds like a plan. I assume you're using the upper receiver clamp/vise block.

Sounds like the PO used red or green loc-tite or maybe epoxy or something. Hope you don't snap the upper. Good luck! remember, lefty loosey. :D
