Default alternative barrel removal

Purchase the barrel vise and insert from Brownells. Also, a good vise that is bolted down to the work bench. And, do not forget some rosin and a set of leather pads for the vise. They will do the job and will not crack the frame. Without the insert or a proper vise, you stand to crack the frame. It will set you back about $150.00 for both fixtures from Brownells but well worth it and if you want to remove another model barrel, just buy the insert. As I mentioned, a good investment and a lot of elbow grease goes a long way. Good luck on your venture.
