i'm afraid i'll start thinking i'm a gunsmith and get myself in deeper
Been there, done that!!

Had one Remmy that simply would not come apart. Finally had to chuck it up in the lathe and turn down the barrel in front of the recoil lug, worked like a charm but it doesn't do much for the resale value of the used barrel.

Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.

Be careful when using heat and Kroil. The fumes are not particularly beneficial to your health.

Thanks Roy but no thanks on the loaning of the tools -i'm afraid i'll start thinking i'm a gunsmith and get myself in deeper.

I put the gun in the back of the gun cabinet out of sight -seems to help a little - gives me time to get myself under control..

Ah! patience and self-control - neither of which I have.

And I even take pills for that
