    Hello! I bought an Arsenal SAM7-66 (with Arsenal quad rail) several months ago and can't seem to get the gas tube off. It's either really tight or I have to remove screws on the quad rail to get it off.

    Any advice for how to get this thing off would be appreciated!

    Lift the locking lever at the base of the rear sight. Remove the screws on the top of the rail, pop the top of the rail off and then wiggle the gas tube loose. Then for the bottom lock, lift the bottom hand guard lever forward. And it cams loose, slide the whole locking assembly forward about 1/4".

    Thank you. I will try. Not sure what the bottom hand guard lever is though?

    Flip this lever up and forward.

    Do you do professional gunsmithing? I have a custom Glock 22 that is having a serious FTF issue that is driving me crazy. Seems gunsmiths so far don't want to touch a customized gun.

    I sure the hell hope he does, as I left a 1911A1 with @Velzey to be fully restored to USGI configuration... I do seem to recall him mentioning staying at a Holiday Inn Express, though!
