Hi guys,

I'm in the process of installing a new outer barrel on my SR7. I have all the required tools and parts, I'm just having trouble unscrewing the part that holds the RIS. It's part 539 on the SR7 parts diagram (I attached a photo). I've read that KWA uses glue/loctite on this part, but I don't know for sure. Any help or tips to get this part unscrewed will be helpful!

Thanks.

Are you sure you are turning it the right way. It's counter threaded so you turn it clockwise to loosen the ring. The barrel nut however is lefty loosy, righty tighty.

And I am assuming you have a strap wrench when you say you have all the tools necessary for the job.

I'm also having a great deal of difficulty removing this part, but the above video is set to private.

Don't know where the strap wrench was supposed to come in handy... went out and bought one just to find that I now need an armorers wrench. Great.
