Re: Remove MG42 Barrel from Collar / Barrel Extension

There are several alternate methods to remove the barrel-extension from the barrel-stub......and you should have knowledge of different ways as the barrel-stubs may come a few inches sticking out.....to almost nothing to grab ahold of. In the past......I have used a Dremmel cut-off-wheel to cut slot...
