    Put the action in a vice and use a pipe wrench to undo the barrel, job done!

    If it's fairly new, shouldn't be on that tight. Hire the gear from workshop innovation and unscrew it yourself...

    Just gotta make sure you don't twist the action or wrack or bend it while applying torque...

    The M700 action is easily crushed or damaged by the incorrect method of barrel removal. The proper way is to hold the barrel close to the action with a neat-fitting pair of metal barrel clamps in a solid barrel vise. The action is unscrewed by using a fitted steel insert which goes inside the reciever and bears on the bolthead raceways. Because the action is cylindrical, and the barrels are often tight, it is easy to damage the action with external clamping methods. A hard, sharp smack on the barrel wrench with a solid mallet is the best way to get a barrel free. Slow turning with extensions only causes problems. Heat should not be used. It is a job for a professional with the correct tools. Fitting a new barrel uses the same tooling plus an alignment tool to ensure the correct location of the recoil lug.
