    Bought a flat top upper, to replace the carry handle upper on my M4.

    Do I need an action vice to support the upper, while removing barrel? Anybody have a vice? Any tricks, secrets, or gotchas to watch out for?

    Help!

    Poor people have poor ways. I just did what I had to do to get it apart. I didn't care about scratches.

      The hammer might be a tad overkill.

      It's an 8#, not 16#

      You're lucky there's no smell option on this thing. I'd run the dogs of a gut wagon tonight.

    I have never had to use a vice block to get a barrel nut loose. Sometimes I have had to whack the AR tool pretty hard with a light weight brass hammer to get it to break loose but thats usually on a DPMS which seems to be a little tighter than the others I have dealt with. Use antisieze going back together with it.

      It really shouldnt give you much problem. I just put in a 30 round mag and lay it on the floor. If it dont come loose real easy just give it a few whacks with a light hammer. Just a little jolt to break it loose. The TQ on those is like 30-75ft lbs so it could be real easy to pretty tight.

    I got all the crap for building one if you decide you can’t do it with the tools you got. But I suspect you probably can.
