Response to Hey guys, looking for ways to remove a TKO from a recent purchased QB78.
One of three things happened.
Could be that the set screws are spinning rather than actually turning out (they do tend to strip if you over tighten them).
Could be that it was jammed onto the end of the barrel deeper than it was designed for (they really aren't supoose to be jammed on until they hit the 1st baffle as a "stop").
Or (and likely are right about this) it's glued on.
Assuming it is glued.
Be sure the little set screws are not just loose, but OUT.
Heat the barrel about 2" back from the end of the muzzle brake (far enough back that a propane torch flam wont directly hit the TKO).
Can wrap a wet rag aroung the barrel 3" back if worried about heat transfer.
Pull and rotate the TKO while the barrel heats.
If you are careful, the glue will let go before the TKO gets over heated/melts. If he used really good slow cure epoxy (like JB Weld steel) may be hosed.
