I have a New Ruger Mini 30 TAC which has the Flash Suppressor. (Catalog Number: M-30/20GBCPC, Model Number: 5854). I understand a Torx T60 will remove it. I do not have one and do not wish to purchase one. There are two flats for a wrench. I tried to heat it up a bit and tried to remove with the wrench and it will not move. A 10mm Allan wrench will also fit inside the flash suppressor. I tried that with a piece of copper pipe on it (about 1 foot long) to get more leverage and it will not move. Any other suggestions. I have layed the rifle on a rug on the ground. I have another person holding the rifle in place while I try to remove. I want to replace it with a thread protector. Looking forward to hear from you all.
