Hello,
I am trying to remove my A6 jacket's bearing so I can put on the appropriate blank firing adapter. Soaked in Krano oil and everything else I can think of, will not budge. Any ideas? Thanks. Matthew

Did you look to see if the lock ring was staked into the notch? It is just like an A4 bearing/booster.

You need to knock that split part of the ring back out of the notch so it is relatively flush/concentric with the ring and clear of the notch. Then it should be possible to break the bearing free. Use a screw driver blade or something sturdy that you can fit in there and tap it with a hammer to clear the notch. I have found a strap wrench works good to turn bearings and boosters, but it ain't gonna move while the ring is staked in. New rings are available if needed from the major suppliers.
