Start the cut and gently pull back causing the gap/cut. Mine was not very long front to back wise..


I used my makita grinder with a cut off wheel. Gotta be real steady with that but I’ve had plenty of practice working on old jeeps

wow- you cut REALLY close to the receiver face. That is unnecessary and risky. Even if you cut 0.030-0.050 away from the face, it will still relieve the pressure on the shoulder.

Another very easy way to remove a Drill Rifle Barrel is to heat the barrel with a torch about halfway down and bend it at a 45-degree angle and just twist it off sometimes you may need to put a small pipe on the end of the barrel.Got two Drill Rifles arriving in the AM.

Hi Vbk76,

How will you install the new barrel, without marking it up with wrench tooth marks?

Best wish's,
broom

Hi Fellows,

I'm sure that some of the rebuild thoughts mentioned here can & will work.
HONESTLY, some thoughts might be overkill -- IF-- it was easy, everyone would do it! Of course "we" can work on our rifles as we wish.

The barrels are tight, but with some heat & penetrating oil & in the threads, the force required is much reduced!
A little heat works - the receiver should only be heated to a point of being too warm to hold. Think heat gun NOT a torch!

I'm sure many of us know what we are doing. But some new guys might just over-do some of the suggestions posted here. Please stay as close to how a gun smith would do the job.
Do some of the steps in error! The rifle might FAIL - as your firing it.

I did much of the work - what I knew I could do safely! I happily paid a good gunsmith to remove & install my new barrels & finish chambering them.
I was a darn good Tool & Die maker & usually have a fine touch with tools. He felt I was too aggressive with the chamber reamer! I stepped back & let him do it! PERFECTION

Fired about 400-500 rounds in the drill rifles so far & have total confidence in them.

Please be safe,
broom -- I'm old & got to be old by being safe.

Cut a piece of an empty spray paint can, taped around receiver, wrench on it. Iím ballpark now but awaiting rosin in the mail as itís starting to spin in the barrel vise. No damage so far
