The first time shooting my rifle with the bullet button, the nut kept coming loose from the vibration. So........I re-installed it with blue loc-tite.:o Now I want to remove the bullet button, but cannot get the nut loosened. When installing it, I also made the mistake of tightening it all the way down past the top of the threaded rod on the mag catch.:o

I have tried heat and WD-40 to loosen the nut, but to no avail. Any recommendations short of drilling out the nut and threaded rod?

use a soldering iron to heat the nut. You can either buy a tool to turn the nut out sold by someone here on the board or just buy a thin metal tube at a hardware store and trim it with a dremal or file so you have two little tabs.
