what i wound up doing is using one of those harbor freight type body pullers that i had in the garage,(1/4 20 threaded tip)went to ace hardware and got a 5 1/2 inch 1/4 20 bolt.put bolt in vise 1/2 inch or so sticking out,and beat the bolt head until approx 45 degrees. then took bench grinder and ground the bolt sides flat to the bolt shank,the upward bent tip, fit right into the carrier slot.popped stripped upper into barrel vise,3 shots with the slide hammer,popped apart.
need a vise with wood or a ar-15 barrel vise to hold the barrel
try mortaring it
