1. I would like to separate the lower receiver from the upper. I took out both big pins, but the front receiver still won't slide off...I don't know what I am doing wrong.
2. I would like to remove the buffer tube in order to install a sling adapter...I see that I can take the screw out of the inside of the tube, but I have read that I will need to disconnect wires...etc...Is this true or can I just uncrew it and throw the sling adapter on with no issues, and then throw the buffer tube back on easily? Just asking ahead of time so I don't mess something up and end up not being able to put it back together easily.
3. I want to remove the orange tip...I think it might be glued on? How do I do this? I was reading that you could take a blowtorch to it to melt the glue and expand the metal...I did it with a lighter and it still would not unscrew. It says it is a negative thread type, so I'm assuming that means turn clockwise to loosen. I also read that you can dip the tip in boiling water and then it will unscrew, but I should take the inner barrel out first. In order to do this I need to separate the receivers which I am having trouble doing!
