CTR Scope Rail Removal…
Some guys are having trouble with this so I figured I'd post pictures and how I do it…
First off, the CTR rail is attached no different then any other rail.
But, some rails may have more glue / thread lock applied then others.
– Remove the 4 screws
– Use a rubber hammer to give it a couple taps…
You don't need to be gentle, hit the thing!
– Apply upward pressure from the tang or barrel side of the rail.
Pull straight up so you don't put pressure on the built in recoil lugs (there are 2).
– If it does not release with the first 3 steps you have to use a torch or heat gun to release
the factory glue / thread lock. A torch works best but a heat gun will work but takes far longer.
– Pull the factory recoil lugs.
Mine released in seconds with a propane torch, others I've worked on were the same but some needed a little more convincing.
***You will need to give the rail and receiver good cleaning to get the crap off, especially the receiver grooves***.
