Future Project

So I need to get the receiver off a Savage 99 barrel.

I need a barrel vise and a special wrench for that.

But just because you have brute force tools means you can yank them around all brutey forcey and all.

Still, wish me luck.  And patience.

One guy did this:

I tried this with large vises and large wrenches, as hard as I could without gouging the metal. Wasn't gonna budge. The smiff came out of the back room a couple of minutes after he went in, barrel switched out presto-twisto. There's a tool for that, apparently for a reason.
