    The 1997 Armalite manual is here. Removing the forestock is on page 11. Takes 3 hands. Note the need for the provided UN & PW.

    Your's full of the desert too? All the Sudanese AR's that came through the shop years ago still had bits of the desert in 'em.

    I would say removing the FSB would be easier. Because to remove the barrel. You're going to need to take the FSB off anyways.

    Sunray you even read? Its a original AR10. Not a new model. Handguard can only be removed by either taking off the FSB and or Barrel. It does not have the 2 piece handguard

    That was easier than I was expecting. Everything off except the barrel. Any idea if a regular AR receiver wrench will work on the old ones?

    Sure, this will be interesting as I have more questions as well. Like, can I heat the barrel nut to help loosen that tight mf'n pig? Must get barrel off to work on the receiver halves.

    The bug got to faster than the camera. I wish I had taken a before pic. It had metal tarp grommets installed in the handguard holes, black tremclad on everything else. As the black came off, red primer underneath..... Lots of careful acetone application as to not bugger up all the fiberglass. Some of the aluminum has the cancer/rot which I did my best to remove without messing up what was left. Brownell's Aluma-Hyde was the simplest way to refinish. Another safe queen? Yes, but it's mine.

    p.s. This is a real AR-10, not those sissified things they try to pass off as one. (Mustang II anyone?)
