Ha! I'm having that exact same issue right now. Been searching posts on it before I posted a new thread. I think the devil himself welded it on there. I'm going to put away the tools and call a priest!

So you removed the castlenut and the tube won't back out of the reciever?

If that's the case, I agree with the poster above that suggested that it has locktite.

Soultion- apply heat to the threads with a heat gun then remove.

If the castle nut is still on there and not backing out, check to make sure that it has not been staked.

Are these RRA and Bushmaster? Likely suspects anyway.
