    I need to make some basic changes to my AR, (swapout of current upper and install free float handguard). I have gotten off everything I need to get off, but the barrel nut just will not budge. Before I do any crazy damage - can anybody recommend a competent person in the Cleveland area to install this?
    Please advise!

    Thanks!

    Just checking, but you have a barrel nut wrench, anfd receiver is in a vice?



    As far as OH, try Adco.

    Yes and yes! I just bought a new vise block for my upper. I am going to give it another shot once I get it.

    Using socket wrench in the square hole of the barrel nut wrench for leverage? They can be very very tight. Don't be afraid of applying muscle. Own it. Some guys have put their foot up on the receiver and have fought it until red faced to get extra tight jobs off.

    Oh, to add one more thing, try some heat.
