I have a RRA National Match that I must put on a RRA Quad Rail. I took off the A2 hand guard to expose the free float tube. I got the locking ring loosened and turned back as far as it will go , it is against the barrel nut but can't see how to get the float tube off. I guess it could be threaded on too?
The Free Float Tube under the Rock River Arms National Match Hand Guard has RED Loctite on it. In order to remove it. First Remove the Flash Hider. Then the Front Sight Assembly Pins and assembly from the barrel. Then you will need a 2 1/2 inch Strap Wrench to remove the tube. And also a torch like one of the small Ronson Butane Torches like you see at Walmart, Lowe's or Home Depot. You will need to heat the tube in the area of the lock nut that you loosened and get it pretty hot while continuing to apply pressure with the strap wrench "at the same time". If you have a problem please PM me and I can assist. Use caution not to collapse the tube while removing it!
Here is a picture of the Torch I use!
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
i know it is your rifle and you can do what you want, but i honestly am wondering why you would change up the work of art that is the rra national match??
there arent any made as well as that rifle until you hit custom territory or something from white oak.
