How to get this off?

Seems to be a threaded fitting, threads on inside. Any suggestions?

Very Carefully so as to not Mar the finish of the barrel.

Careful/padded vice and a smidge of heat, maybe a soldering iron on the nut, not a heat gun.

Heat, as it's almost certainly got a locking compound in there, and an impact wrench.

The HD thread lockers typically will let go at about 600deg F (or so Ive heard), a hair dryer wont do it, an industrial heat gun (maybe even the Harbor Freight model) should, a handheld propane torch for sure.
Fwiw, paper burns at 451deg F.

Cut it off and recrown the barrel. If Bubba will put that monstrosity on a barrel who knows what kind of threading/crowning job he did anyway.

Try penetrating oil first. Heat second. Can you determine the thread direction. Some barrels have left hand threads.

If you don't care about marring the barrel, clamp the fitting in a stout vise and turn the barrel out with a 12" or larger pipe wrench. I have 36" just for gnarly little jobs like this

Try clamping the barrel in a padded vise, heating up the fitting with a propane torch then have a go at it with an air impact wrench.

Go at it like 'gunsmithing' first, you can always resort to 'garage' methods if subtle doesnt work.

Just get it off there. It is obvious what it is. With that and a spare fuel filter in your garage, BATF could establish intent and you would be in a lot of hot water.

That is a very good point Mike, but has nothing to do with my comment so why quote me?

I would not assume anything. All this heat and monkey wrench talk!

Clamp the barrel in a vise with padded jaws and put a normal wrench on the fitting. I almost dont get the question. If it will not screw off with that, then ask.

I inherited a couple of dad's cast 3' and 4'ers that I gave away. If I ever need one that big I'm hiring out the job.
