    Heat is the only tool I know of to soften red loctite. This tool will make the job easier but will not replace the need for heat if you have a loctited tube.
    Leave my rifle, my fishing pole, my traps, and leave me be.

    I bought a takedown tool yesterday at The Gun Shop in East Haven, VT. Took mine apart today because the action was sluggish and I figured my o-ring was torn and binding up. Once apart it turned out to be just a bunch of gunk and dirt around the o-ring and in the tube. Cleaned it all up, put it together dry and it’s like new. Pretty easy job after watching a couple YouTube videos!

    Looks like you might have a Tool Rental business in the making.
    I bent 2 Punches trying to get mine off.
    I tried heat, but sparingly.
    May have to invest in one.
    Probably $40 well spent after the hours of aggravation.

    Your experience mirrors what I experienced and exactly why I made the purchase. The heat needed to free red loc-tite is obnoxious. I was concerned I was going to damage bluing in the process.

    Here's a picture of the tool i bought, its about 6" overall, the handle is aluminum, the shaft is a broken drill bit the diameter of the pump tube holes. The ene of the aluminum where the bit goes in is cut out in the contour of the tube.

    It seems like the heavy duty lock tite might be over kill. What grade is recommended for reassembly ?

    I used the blue Loctite and it’s worked perfectly so far.

    I reassembled without loctite as it didn't have any to begin with.

    Just an FYI, and I'm not sure if it is the case elsewhere. Our Lowes does not carry a #40 O ring of any make.
    I've already told you more than I know.

    I never checked Lowes, but it is definitely a regular stocking item at Home Depot. That's where I would get them. Can't beat $2.50 for 10 of them.

    Edit, the Lowes variant. Also appears to be a regular stocking item.
