I can't get mine to move, which direction does it turn before I put a wrench on it and apply pressure. It seems dried stuck, the pin depresses but I can't get the break to move either direction.

Soak it in oil over night and try again. I put mine in a coffee can brake down and covered with oil. Came right off the next day. They get a lot of carbon built up in them.

Agree, soak it overnight and try it again. As Krinkfreak said, threads are reversed so make sure youre turning clockwise to loosen.

Probably not an unusual problem, since the Hungarian cleaning kits for the AMD-65's include a special wrench that fits the flats on the brake.

(It's just a plain open-ended wrench, though.)

Ive heard it referred to as a 'spanner' wrench before. Ive got one that came with my Hungarian cleaning kit. Gotta have all the trinkets... :twisted:

Well it's off

I soaked it, it wouldn't move, my son tried, a son-in-law tried nothing finally another son-in-law tried and got it off. I built a pistol and put a muzzel nut on it so I can use the muzzel attachment on a rifle build. Oh and when I fire the pistol the cover jumps off, would a buffer solve that problem?
