has anybody had any luck with this? having the same problem trying to remove the A2 buffer tube from the fixed stock assembly.
NM figured it out-
The buffer tube on the A2 stock models (fixed stock) is held in place with Red Loctite. What you'll need is a vise, armorers wrench with A2 stock cutout (I used the one from Brownells), a 'breaker bar' or large wrench, or you can use a pipe to get extra leverage on the wrench, and a heat gun/torch.
I removed the stock, applied heat to the region the threading was, once the loctite begins to breakdown, you can break it loose, but you need to use sharp snapping force, constant pressure won't help
