how on earth are you supposed to remove this thing? the barrel nut socket thing only fits for the front most nut. whoever built my ksg put WAY too much loctite on the rail screws and they both stripped 1st time trying to remove them. the screws had to be drilled out. 1st one came out fine, rear one snapped off and the block had to be drilled out. keltec said to just replace the block vs installing a sleeve type rethreaded thing. this thing is so frustrating to disassemble lol

As other owners have discovered, Kel-Tec did not intend for the rail screws to vibrate loose or come out easily, so they used some sort of Loctite type thread locker and a lot of torque.
For that reason people have stripped the threads.

There's another recent post where an owner ran into this same problem.
He bought the Kel-Tec barrel nut tools and attempted to get the lower nut off so he could replace the lower sight base.
Unfortunately the Kel-Tec tools failed to get the nut off and he had to send it in to the factory for repair.
Due to the design of the lower base and nut, it takes a unique tool to remove the nut and the Kel-Tec tool just doesn't seem to be up to the job.

Read this thread............


This is one of those cases where it's probably best to cut to the chase and send the barrel in to the factory so they can replace the base.
