    Hey AS, long time no see...

    I know internals very well, while on the topic of externals, that's a different story. Now, I would like some assistance and advice remove my Krytac barrel nut.

    My questions are as follows:
    -Is this really the barrel nut?
    -How would I install a Madbull DD 12" Lite RIS on my beauty?
    -What tools would I need to install the rail?

    What I have already done:
    -Removed the Defiance rail system
    -Removed the gas tube/gas block


    Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    What you need as following:

    1. A Standard Wrench.

    2. A bench vice to secure the upper receiver for leverage.

    3. And some Elbow Grease

    Things that DO NOT NEED.

    * AR Wrench is not necessary as the barrel nut is NOT design for it. It is ACTUALLY design to use with a standard household wrench.

    * No heating the barrel nut is necessary. No glue is apply during assembly.

    Hope that helps....
