    I'm pretty sure you want a 5mm punch. That's what I used and it fit snug, which is what you want. With the red loctite, you need the heat to break it.

    Looking for it as I type here.

    Skilled hands could make one but it would take some time and good machining.
    Leave my rifle, my fishing pole, my traps, and leave me be.

    F that, I'll use my 03 Springfield next year. No rattles or O rings. My first rifle and the only one I ever needed...

    I was picturing more of a spanner wrench.

    Amazon has the o rings as well in packs of 3 or 4. Price works out to $3 or $4 a price. Looks like those Home Depot ones are the best option.

    Finding a proper fitting punch was a PITA. I snapped one punch and one screw driver. Luckily I had a hardened torx set that fit fairly well. I got the job done though ordered a tool for the job this evening. According to Loc-Tite 550 degrees Fahrenheit is needed to free red loc-tite.

    Never had to take my 7600 apart. Just wondering if taking the fore stock off lets you get access to the o ring ?

    5mm seemed pretty easy to find on Amazon. That's probably what I'll do if/when I need to take it apart.

    No, you need to unscrew the action tube from the receiver with is the PITA part being discussed here. You remove the forend, then use a punch through the holes in the action tube to unscrew the tube from the bolt in the receiver. Then you pull the barrel/action tube/slide tube off and you can pull the slide tube off the action tube to replace the o-ring. A few videos were posted regarding the teardown.

    I've switched all my safeties out to be left-hand as well. On the second gun, that damn little spring went flying into the air, and I figured it was lost forever, until I heard it plop in the dogs water bowl. What luck!!
