Looking to buy an AR wrench. Want to install a U-15 stock kit. Anyone know where I can pick one up in Sacramento area?

Thanks,

I may be missing something here, but you don't need an AR wrench to install the U-15 (at least not the generation I have).

You could use a CAR Wrench to tighten on the receiver extension. I just use my hands.

Hi Wes and C.G.

I bought a lower that had the tube and spring already on there (not U-15 kit). The nut is super tight. I tried to take it off with my hands and even using a punch pin to get it started. No go.

So a CAR wrench is needed.

Wes, I left you a message on Sunday re buying an upper and I had some questions. When is a good time to call?

If the lower was assembled properly, the plate was staked into the castle nut.

I knew there was something that I was missing.:)

I just checked my messags late last night. You should get a call later today. As it says on the machine, e-mail will get you a much faster response.

brownells has the RRA stock wrench (739-000-010). It has 3 fingers to grab the castle nut. 8$.

If the castle nut is properly staked you may want to hit the area with a file, or cut off wheel on a dremel first.

I have found the RRA wrench to be better then more expensive single tooth wrenches and the price is hard to beat. FWIW I include these with the stocks.

Randall and Pete:

Does not look like it has been staked. Thanks for the tips.


Wes:

I should have sent an email. Looking forward to your call.
