FYI, when I first removed the delta ring I didn't have an AR wrench and totally wrecked the OEM ring. I ended up having to dremel off all the teeth and using a large pipe wrench to slowly crank it off.
tl;dr buy a wrench and good tools.

Retracting the handguard slip ring is a two-man job on many guns including the 5.56mm versions. Takes two hands to retract the ring that leaves no hands to remove the handguards. There are handguard removal tools around but it's usually easy to get someone to help.
Removing the barrel nut without softening the thread locker is asking for a broken upper receiver. I've never seen an explaination why KWA uses thread locker on this part (or the muzzle device). Several threads describe the process and an AR15 "combo tool" or M16 barrel nut wrench is mandatory.
