Good evening all:

 

New to the forum here.  Looking forward to the exchange of ideas and information.

 

I just got a VR-80 and cleaned it before shooting.  I used the ammo  that is on the Rock Island site.  Fiocchi  12 gage 2 3/4",  1 1/4 oz.  1330 FPS,   7.5 shot, and (250 rounds)  the weapon preformed flawlessly.     Broke the weapon down for cleaning and all went good except: the GAS RETAINING NUT (part number 70) unscrewed with no issue and then unable to remove the GAS BLOCK (part number 68) is stuck in place.   Any ideas for my situation  ??????????????

If all else fails put the barrel in your refrigerator or frezzer over night and get s tourch to heat the piston whole bumping it with plastic hammer. Cold well shrink metal and heat will expand. Use to install ak barrels this way by hand.

I bet it's just heavy carbon build up tho.
