Barrel rench Using ACME's Free Floating Crow'a Foot Wrench makes the job easy. In the past I have had to use a narrow gauge open end but you have to guess on the torque. All ACME Products I have used a great quality and good priced.
Perfect Did job great. Put two new hand guards on uppers. Two different companies both fit great. Able to do proper 35lbs and constant loosing and tightening for installing barrel nut shims to get exact line up. Zero slips.
Works fine Good crows foot for low torq Applications
Not bad Not sure if it was the wrench or the barrel nut, but I couldn't put more than 40 ft lbs on my nut without wrench slipping. I had to use regular wrench to get the last 1/8 turn to line up gas tube.
Worked good for me! This worked very well as long as I didn't torque it above 55 lbs. Great for getting the nut started and over the 30lb mark. If needed to go higher switch to good adjustable wrench. This is hands down better than having to by a crows foot set for much more.
Barrel Nut Wrench /Crows Foot Wrench I am glad this crows foot wrench is modestly priced however it needs to be modified. The width of the jaw is slightly too wide for the barrel nut on the Super Slim Free Float fore end. I began to round off the nut with only 30 foot pounds of pressure. As far as I can tell the nut is supposed to be between 30 and 50 ft/lbs so that seemed like a problem that needs to be reviewed. My best estimate is that the barrel nut is 31 millimeter. Also, it would be great if you included a note on the web pages for your fore ends to look for the crows foot wrench as your fore end does not use a standard armorers wrench.
