View Full Version : Trouble removing gas tube nut

February 23, 2009, 12:19
I am trying to remove the gas tube nut on a newly made DSA StG58c, to replace the carry handle with the spacer.

For the life of me, using the gas wrench, I cannot get it to budge.

Any suggestions ?

kroil / penetrant soak, then deft work w/a fat-tipped brass punch set in the notches would be my initial try.
how many cuss words have you used? threatened it with the dremel yet?

7/16 nut driver in the crescent ...and a hammer, hasn't failed me yet.
