Default Trying to remove S&W M&P 15 buffer tube


I'm trying to replace the end plate on my Smith and Wesson M&P 15 with a Daniel Defense rear sling swivel attachment point.

However, the buffer tube is staked to the factory end plate. Does anyone have any recommendations for removing the tube? I've bent my cheap armorer's tool trying. I did heat the tube at the threads to break any loctite that might have been used in conjunction with the staking.

Thanks in advance for any help. If you know of any local Southern California retailers who sell a higher quality armorer's tool, let me know.

Make sure your tool is square and it sits in the slots perfectly Just be patient and make sure you get a straight pull on it. Its a trying process but when you get the attch point on you r gun will look Sick.
