Remove MG42 Barrel from Collar / Barrel Extension

Post by sdd5317 »

I have several cut barrel stubs with the barrel collar still in place. I'm trying to figure out the best (easiest) way to remove the scrap barrel stub from the collar.

Attached is a photo of the barrel stub and extension I am trying to separate. If anyone has performed this before, a picture of the setup you used for removal would be great. I have heard that gripping the barrel stub in a vise and then using a long metal rod for torque to unscrew the extension works but I have not been successful in my attempts.
