First thing: Take a deep breath and step away from the rifle.

Contact AR15Barrels here. He is not that far away from you in Van Nuys.

Drilling them never ends well.
I have a pressing fixture for removing and installing taper pins.

Has anyone removed one of these, or know of a local gunsmith who could help?

Thanks for your help

Did you pick it up?

We agree.

That is an old disclaimer that was supposed to be removed from our website during our last website refresh a few month ago, and replaced with the following updated disclaimer:

ADDAX TACTICAL IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY EXISTING SCRATCHES AND BLEMISHES ON CUSTOMER SUPPLIED PARTS.

ADDAX TACTICAL IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR CUSTOMER SUPPLIED PARTS THAT DO NOT FIT OR INSTALL PROPERLY.

The website admin. has been informed of the oversight, and the new disclaimer should be posted up shortly.

Thanks,
Addax Tactical
