    Multitasker Tools has one in the works. Not sure though when it goes into full production, but if heavy duty is what you are looking for, this wrench should fit the bill.

    Well Shane, I certainly look forward to the day when you have the design refined, and I can do a review on the newly released Multitasker Armorer's Wrench!!!

    Cool.

    Iraqgunz was just telling me about some of these tools that Ken was showing him recently.

    (He didn't get to see the barrel indexing secret either!)

    Bench Vise

    If you work on AR-15's with any frequency, you really need a good bench vise. In this case, a CNC machine vise. They aren't cheap but there really isn't anything this vise and set of v-blocks can't do well. The vise of choice for me is a Glacern Machine Tool GSV-550. Besides being made in the USA, a few advantages over a typical shop vise are:

    • Lower Height - Less leverage to move your bench around
    • Precision Clamping Force - There is no jaw lift to allow fixtures or parts to shift
    • Smooth & Parallel Jaws - No need for pads or clam shells to protect your work


    Properly fixtured, the vise or v-blocks will leave no trace of their use. I keep a pack of 3X5 cards around if I feel the need to protect painted parts.

    Check out the slide show and you'll see all that it can do...

    Specialized Armament M4 Stock Wrench

    You'll see two versions of the wrench in the slideshow. I machined off the top on one of my wrenches so it can be used while the receiver extension is fixtured.

    Negative... That tool is bomb proof. It's made from 1/4 inch 4140 and heat treated to 40Rc.

    would it be ignorant to suggest the DPMS multi-tool? I've built approx 6 AR's including my own and for friends with this tool with no discernable wear to the tool nor slippage on parts. As a multi-tool, I'd say it is "par" for the job. The more detailed tools are sure to be better, but as a seldom used tool, I cant recommend better.

    I've been able to completely assemble multiple pieces including barrels, muzzle devices, buffer tubes, etc with this tool. Using receiver blocks in a vice, there have been zero issues.

    For the casual builder, I don't think there is anything wrong with the DPMS tool. I've used mine oer the years with no issue. I've migrated to the Brownells tool however.

    If you guys from Specialized Armament are still watching this thread, could you please post some pictures of your standard barrel nut wrench?

    No mention of the Brownells CAR15/M4 Buttstocks Wrench? Yeah, it's pricey, but worth every penny.

    I sold my Browning High Power because it is a heavy, low-capacity, hammer-biting, magazine disconnecting, stiff manual safetied artifact with uncommon magazines, and it still holds the honored place of being my least favorite pistol I have ever owned.
