STO Feedneck

I'm feeling pretty dumb at this point. I need some pointers on removing the feedneck from my 2k2 WGP Black Magic. Usually, this thing would unscrew from the body every time I removed my hopper. The last time this happened I must have used blue locktite, because I cannot get the thing to budge.

This is a shame since I bought a new clamping feedneck...

So far, I've tried submersing the feedneck in boiling water for ~10 minutes, and setting the whole receiver in a vice and trying to unscrew the feedneck with a Craftsman strap wrench. The strap just slides round and round, no matter how tight I tension it.

I don't want to scratch up the anno on the feedneck, so non-destructive solutions are welcomed. Thanks!!

Did I mention I feel really dumb? <sigh>

Use the strap wrench as soft jaws for the vice. Use the body for torque. Try that out.

If you don't plan on keeping the stock feedneck, just drill a transverse hole through the upper portion, stick a screwdriver through the holes, and bust her loose.

The thought had crossed my mind, but I'd really like to keep the stock feedneck intact. My BM has a nice blue to black fade anno...

This. Trim a piece off the strap wrench, put the feedneck in the vice protected by the piece of strap with the body upside down. Clamp down and turn the body. All this will work better if you heat it with a butane torch lighter to break the bond first.

I'll try that, but I'll need to get my hands on a butane torch, first...

A Bic works too, just takes longer and leaves some black residue you need to wipe off.
