I have used wood to hammer on, alluinum, and a whole bunch of other tricks. Just got the back to pop loose, now just have to keep messing with it too get the recoil lug to let go. Thanks for all your help.
I've seen pullers made similar to the one NesikaChad has pictured. Only they were made from a 2x4 block with a cutout in it so that it will slip over the action and be touching the stock on both sides. The same principle as the one pictured. Just not as fancy and elaborate. Then all you need is a C-clamp to pull the action out with. One end in the reciever, and the other on top of the block. Crank her out.
