    Embarrassing indeed. Those pretty hands showed me how it's done.

    The proper vise block and monster strap wrench sure helped, but gotta give credit where credit is due.

    I must obtain a monster strap wrench like that. I couldn't find one locally.

    Not embarrassing at all, if you don't do often your strength change drastically.
    Their CS associates have to do 200 pushups between breaks.

    Kinda' hard to believe........ I have my doubts about this... did they return the old part? Was it the original?

    I also like these

    Of course, for removing barrels and other round things, I machine profiled 7075 aluminum blocks that fit the round thing exactly and clamp them down with my 30" vise wrench while the other end is held in in my Columbian machinist vise by appropriate means.

    Hard to believe perhaps, but I got it back with the same goofy scratches I put on it and the barrel to the upper receiver.

    Now my mlok works perfect and it's noticeably lighter.

    Those linked straps look awesome. Gotta get me some.

    If anyone else has this same issue and is having a time with it I highly recommend just shipping the upper minus the handguard to Freedom Ordnance. They do it and ship it back to you for free and quickly. Great CS.

    I took my FX-9 to a gunsmith yesterday, before I broke something or myself.

    It only took him a few minutes to get the faux suppressor off, but the strap wrench wouldn't do it. He had to break out a pipe wrench.

    I'm pretty sure the person who puts those things on is not the same woman in the videos shown removing it.

    I ended up using a piece of leather and a large pair of channel locks. Still a PIA.

    That's it.
    You didn't use the right fingernail polish! and did not have on a pink shirt.
    Always something simple;)

    Glad they got it taken care of for you.

    For future reference, the right size oil filter wrench and some rubber cut from an old floor mat from a car can do this job sometimes.

    I have had one of those strap wrenches for 30 years, Rigid brand. Mine is painted orange and is steel, the grey ones are aluminum.
