How to remove the gas tube on a Bushmaster M4.

Table of contents

Overview

Carbon build up can cause the gas tube to be difficult to remove. Turn the barreled upper receiver upside down and lightly clamp the gas tube in a 4" vise with the handguard cap against one side of the vise. Then you can lightly tap on the rear of the receiver with a plastic mallet which will drive the tube out of the sight base.
If anyone has applied Loctite to "seal" the gas system a propane torch should be used to warm that area to soften the Loctite.
