TAPCO® Intrafuse® Stock Wrench for AR Rifles
Judge for yourself
I recently bought an AR style 9mm carbine and needed a AR wrench to take the castle nut off my gun so I could clean it. I looked this one up and seen the reviews and was almost convinced not to get it. But the reviews seemed to be either really bad or really good. So i decided to go with it. I don't know what the people did that rated this wrench so low, mine fit perfect and if you use a little care and take your time the tool works flawlessly. Which leads me to beleive that some if not all the people that had bad experiences with this tool, just didnt do it right. Absolutely nothing wrong with this tool, if you use it with a bit of common sense.

Good buy, does the job.
Never done work on an AR before but wanted to install a Magpul ASAP sling adapter on my buffer tube and this tool worked well. I've shopped around and there are many different tools to choose from ranging from $10-$80. Fair price for a quick and easy job. I didn't give it a 5 since I haven't used the wrenches other functions so I can't say how they will do. For an average shooter I think this is the way to go, although, I will have to purchase a second tool when/if I need to remove my barrel nut.

After reading older reviews elsewhere I was a bit leery of this tool. Reports of buggering threads and having to modify the tool worried me. I am happy to say I had no such problems. The tool fit my castle nut perfectly and I didn't get as much as a scratch anywhere. Well made and offered plenty of leverage for the job.

The wrench did not properly fit the castle nut on my ATI Omni lower and marred the threads on my buffer tube (commercial). Tried it on a friend's mil-spec lower with same result. I ended up doing some filing on it and now it works as it should, but should I really have to modify a tool to get it to fit correctly?
