Can anybody tell me how you go about removing the Cutts compensator from the barrel ? I know that you have to remove the pin, but is the pin beveled? I was trying to pound it out with a punch and -no dice. Should I heat it up? Also is it necassary to remove the foregrip mount to replce the old barrel with a new one? If it is -how do you remove it from the reciever? Is there anybody out there that would allow me to use a barrel wrench? I will pay you for its use and I will pay for the shipping to and from my house. Any help would be kindly appreciated.

The pin should come out with reasonable force and a proper size punch. After the pin is removed, the Cutts should unscrew. The Grip Mount is retained by the barrel, which must be removed first.

You may want to try standing Tommy on the muzzle within a cup or bucket of lubricant and see if this helps.
Chances are though that its such a tight fit that any lubricant may not be able to seep in.
