Oh, and I had to hold the barreled receiver, since I didn't have a bench vice at the time.

You don't need a barrel block to remove the barrel. If it's going to be cut and threaded a hacksaw is the tool of choice. See the barrel removal stickie.
I heard the shroud may not break free. I was planning on saw zawing off the muzzle, if i clamp the barrel in my bench vise or say a pipe wrench, will it damage the barrel under the shroud when trying to break the barrel free?

No, you can clamp the shroud as tight as you want. Cut anywhere midway between the pin and receiver. When you get through the barrel the shroud will pop forward, as it's spring loaded. That's when you know you're done.

Should be twice as fast...you can pull back on the receiver and push on the saw. As for the Chinese blades...you're on your own.
Ahhh, no. Have to hold it steady, in order to keep the blade from binding. Move the barrel or move the blade, can't do both.


Oh, and the thirty minutes includes the time for me having to find the new blade (5 minutes), and changing it(one minute).
