De-solder shotgun rib

3213 3
I have an old shotgun with a rib that is coming off at a few points. I want to remove the rib.

I have a oxy-ace torch set-up, but I've only done steel welding and brazing with it, and never any silver soldering.

It also has a few lugs and other parts that I don't want to remove.

I wonder if I should heat the barrel in a furnace first, then use the broad torch flame to finish heating the posts until the rib comes loose.

Anyone with experience with this is welcome to reposnd.
