Tip(s) on removing the collar

Good morning, while the wife is away I have decided to “play” and am going to take my SUB2000 apart again for the third time and install the new stainless steel trigger bushing. I have all the tools to take apart the firearm but I am down to removing the collar that retains the two halves together and using the MCARBO wrench-I cannot get the collar to budge!!! Would a gentle tap around the collar (covered with a towel) with a ball peen hammer be out of line??

Success!!! Giving it the death stare must have scared the collar into submission. That sucker was on there though…

A little Red Lock tight, after a good cleaning of threads with pick and alcohol.

I had some left over 380 black Loctite from my internal rebuild kit and put the three drops around area where the collar goes.

Ok … gotta ask. What you put’n that stiff on internally? Only place I use it is to fix the collar nut.

No, just on the collar. Sorry if there was confusion about that.
