View Full Version : Home made AR BB removal tool

I recently asked how to remove the bullet button from my DDM4. Once it was explained to me and I saw what the tool looked like, I searched through my garage for something I could use. I found a (not sure of exact name) tamper proof snake eyes bit, size 10 that I sanded down a bit and it worked perfectly! I was expecting a bit of a struggle but surprisingly my BB didn't have any locktite and the nut backed off with just my finger turning the bit. I probably should have taken a before pic, but I wasn't sure it would work, hope this helps someone save a few bucks.

Nice, I believe that is called a spanner bit. I have a few, but didn't think to mod one as a BB tool. Thanks for the idea.

Ah yes, that's what they're called!
