    Why did he have to use a new frontier Model? Those things look horrible

    I don't mind that he used the New Frontier, but unless I missed it he never called it by it's correct name..."New Frontier". Odd!

    Cool. Now I can tear mine apart. How do I get the barrel off?

    Yes
    I looked at Numrich and it seems the barrel is threaded. That way Mike can reblue the barrel without doing the frame

    Oh..I was being facetious! But, ok. You can bore a hole through a 2X or 4X slightly smaller than the OD of the barrel. Rip it through the center, rosin the inside of the hole, put the barrel in the bored hole, clamp it in a vise and unscrew it. Or, you can clamp two blocks together, bore the hole and use them in the same way. That's how I've always done it. Mike or Gary might have a better way.

    Yep, that works, but I'm sure Mike will have a barrel vise with the right size inserts and an action wrench. :) BTW, if you don't have any rosin, granulated sugar will work as a substitute.

    Sugar will come off in the dishwasher. :)
