View Full Version : Info for New Guy, re: LIAI Threaded Barrel.

September 14, 2001, 02:42
Hey, all. Great board. Just found it a while ago. Need a little help here. I need to know how the L1A1, British SLR, configuration, guns are threaded at the muzze. Got a kit, took the pin and spacer out of the flash hider, need to remove the flash hider from the barrel, can't tell if it's RH or LH, and it's damn hard to move in either direction. If someone knows and could let me know, would really appreciate it. Thanks a lot.

I'd advise heating it up for about 10 seconds with a torch before you try to remove it. This will melt all that hardened grease and free it up.

We busted a wrench trying to get it off without heating it during my first build.

ksuguy, thanks for the advice! I tried it a couple times already, it is a bitch! Time for a little heat! Take it easy.
