Like the title says, I have a Ruger No. 1 in the shop to be threaded for a muzzle brake. The barrel has to come off to do that. Made up a square receiver wrench, chucked up the barrel in my vise blocks and put as much pressure on the wrench as I dared. Unlike most Ruger products, the stripped receiver for the No. 1 looks fairly delicate in cross section so I didn't want to really lean on it. The amount of pressure applied would have easily loosened the barrel on any bolt rifle I've had experience with (except the 1917 "Enfield" which is a story all by itself). Not a bit of movement from the No. 1.

Warmed it up with a heat gun and tried again. No joy.

So, anyone out there have experience with these and suggestions on how to proceed?
