    Default 1919 barrel shroud stuck

    Any hints on loosening these things? I soaked the thing in liquid wrench and am using a 30" pry bar, but can't get the shroud unscrewed from the trunion. My vise is starting to tear out of my work bench.

    You did remove the locking screw, right?

    Some are soldered on. Need to heat it some with a torch, propane or Mapp will do and then try again while it is still hot.

    as mentioned above mine has a small flat head screw that has to be removed.
    if you do not find a screw head with carefull inspection try the heat meathod, solder can be a P.I.T.A. heat and then turn QUICK before it cools.. good luck let us know what you find. HB

    It goes much easier with a second pair of hands. Have a buddy keep some pressure on it while you keep the torch moving around the base. Once it starts to break loose, keep the torch moving while your buddy unscrews it. The solder re-solidifies very quickly after you remove the heat. This will allow you to get it off using as little heat as possible.

    Don't give up on the kits yet! There is also Ohio Ordanance Works in Ohio and they still have the $350.00 kits. Also over on the 1919A4.com board, there are guys selling kits they are not going to build. Yes, the kits are drying up.
