Ok so i have tried a lot of crap to remove the front part that is supposedly just in front of the front sight. I got my lighter and heated it up and it wont screw off. I used some pliers and covered them with tape and a cloth and covered the barrel and it still managed to scrape into the barrel leaving nasty silver marks. However, i managed to barely turn the barrel so that means it is moving, it just wont freaking come off

You need a heat gun, a lighter won't evenly heat up the glue. It's not "supposedly" infront of the front sight, it is you just need real heat

If you've already scratched the barrel, just use a pipe wrench and sand it down and paint it after you get it off...

I really just want to remove it so that i can screw on a "barrel extension" over the inner barrel and make it look cooler. Then if i get bored of it i just put the oem barrel back on

Where are you gripping the barrel with your pliers?  If you gripping to close to the threads you could be putting pressure on the connection between the two outer barrels.

No im gripping it sort of in the center, and even with tape and rubber on the barrel and pliers, it still scratches the barrel cause the damn thing is impossible to take off

And when looking down the barrel you're going clockwise?  If heat didn't work you might have to get some penetrating oil and give it a good coat at the joint and let it sit for a few hours before you try again.  Maybe with some applied heat too.

It comes off super easy if you use a heat gun, a lighter won't work

Well i finally got the damn thing off!!! But sadly, my "barrel extension" wont screw in all the way cause of the dang bayonet lug thing. I guess I'll just have to use it screwed in 1/4 of the way

Or simply cut off the bayonet lug....I know a number of people who have....and it's not hard to do.
