You will need a fore end wrench. You can obtain one through Remington, or Brownell's. It costs about $30-$40.

i made one by simply taking a piece of water pipe and hack
sawing the two sides to get the notches that fit in the lock ring,i then chased them down to fit with a file,drill a hole on the top to slip a piece of bar thru to twist it with as well.theyre not screwed on that tight and it worked ,saved myself the $$ in ten minutes work for a one shot deal of changing them once.

I use a set of needlenosed pliers to change a couple of forends. Open them up, insert the tips in the notches and twist.
