Watch the HB Industries video on YouTube that shows how to install their hand guard, it shows taking the old hand guard off. Once your at the point you are ready to install the new hand guard,  you can slide the barrel  out of the upper reciever. I heat all the screws to get them out.  Used a T25 torx wrench.

Apparently, so easy a blind guy can do it. I would like to know what the torque setting would be for reassembly.

I read about the torque settings in another thread:

Supposedly, it is a simple process with only the six easily accessible screws. 

The following is a video for the Bren 2 barrel removal which is described as similar.

Below is a link to a previous thread that describes the torque sequence and settings for the Bren 805.

Summary
Removing the barrel is the reverse of this process.  Torque setting is 70 lbs or 8N/m

Proceed to tighten screw pairs from front (muzzle end) to rear.  Start with left screw, then right screw in the same pair.  Then go to the next pair down starting again on the left side and then the right side.  Lastly, repeat for the 3rd pair.

Please note:  I have not changed a barrel myself but am just providing info from others.

Thx

I would assume he mean 70 inch-lbs?
