SWR 3 Lug Removal?

SWR 3 Lug Removal?

Post by .300WinMag » Thu Apr 03, 2014 1:47 pm

So my 3 Lug has a tendency to not want to unscrew from the suppressor (top ring with the 3 holes). Is there a tool I was supposed to get to remove this? Do folks have good tips to remove it (aside from jamming a punch in it and forcing it to turn?)

I vaguely recall using the pin on an ar tool when this happened to me, or an ar stock wrench. Been a while since I had my three lug come apart. The end of my armorers tool I'm pretty sure worked fine on it. Will double check, about time to lube the three lug anyway.

Stupid, stupid NFA items.

You can use a strap wrench or the Armstrong Tools part #34-204
