So, how many of you guys have removed a fal barrel w/o using a reciever wrench?

What's the chance of damaging your reciever?

Here's the short of it: don't try. Do it right.

Have any of you used Serger's method

Basicly, reciever supported in a vise and a large adjustable wrench.

Sounds sacry.

DO NOT headspace a rifle like he does. Use real headspace guages.

Well, I have done it that way, and lucked out. It is a real good way to ruin a receiver. Do not try it !!!
