Removing the feedneck?

How do I take the original feedneck off my mini without damaging it (both the mini and the feedneck)? I saw a video where the guy effortlesly twists it off with his bear hands but I can't seem to do it...

There has beeen a dozen of these threads. It seems like everyone suggests a strap wrench and a heat gun to help loosen the locktite

So basically just like taking a feedneck off of any other marker? Sorry but seeing a video of the guy removing it without any tools threw me off - I thought that Minis were different

Yup just like any other marker. Mine came off by hand, but others out there have locktite on them

Strap wrench and hair dryer should get it off really nice for you.

If you don't have a strap wrench you could just take an allen key, stick it through the screw hole for the lock lever and TORQUE it off. Just heat the feedneck to loosen the loctite beforehand.
