GERBER SHORT STACK AR15 TOOL

GERBER SHORT STACK AR15 GRIP TOOL with a MAGPUL MOE PISTOL GRIP

GERBER SHORT STACK AR15 GRIP TOOL with a MAGPUL MOE PISTOL GRIP

 

As mentioned in an earlier post I ordered a GERBER SHORT STACK AR15 TOOL from Midways Amazon store. The GERBER SHORT STACK AR15 TOOL is everything I expected and more. You can see a list of features on the previous post linked above. No reason to repeat myself. First thing I notice is the finish. Feels exactly like a phosphate coated bolt carrier. I like that. The second thing is the tool is first rate quality in fit and finish. The GERBER SHORT STACK AR15 TOOL is strong, hard and seems to be made with precision. So far so good.

Installation – First thing I needed to do was remove the bottom cap of the MAGPUL MOE PISTOL GRIP. Always a challenge for a guy with some physical challenges. Once the end cap was removed the Magpul supplied rubber tool holder needs to be removed to allow the GERBER SHORT STACK AR15 TOOL to fit properly. The  GERBER SHORT STACK AR15 TOOL sits about flush with the end of the MAGPUL MOE PISTOL GRIP. I was concerned the tool would rattle as that would be annoying to put it mildly. It does not. It’s actually a perfect fit.

All in all Im quite pleased with the GERBER SHORT STACK AR15 TOOL. Be curious to see if other tools develop from this line.

Note: The GERBER SHORT STACK also fits the MAGPUL MIAD series of AR15 Pistol Grips

308AR Barrel Extension Torque Tool

Brownells 308AR Barrel Extension Torque Tool

Brownells 308AR Barrel Extension Torque Tool

308AR Barrel Extension Torque Tool

The Brownells 308AR Barrel Extension Torque Tool has a very misleading name. In fact my first impression after reading the title lead me to believe the 308AR Barrel Extension Torque Tool was for tightening the barrel extension to the barrel. THAT IS NOT THE CASE. This tool is for preventing damage to your upper receiver when tightening the barrel nut. Description: Handy tool aids in applying straight-line torque for fast, easy installation of the barrel nut without scratching the exterior of the upper receiver. Helps ensure the right amount of torque is evenly applied, while maintaining proper alignment of the barrel, upper receiver, and gas tube ports. Use with any barrel nut wrench or free-float tube wrench and a torque wrench with a ½” square drive. Simply clamp the barrel nut wrench handle firmly in a bench vise, insert the barrel into the upper receiver, and finger tighten the barrel nut. Slide the barrel through the wrench, insert the Torque Tool in the back of the receiver until the teeth lock into the locking lugs in the barrel extension, and apply torque with the torque drive through the Tool to tighten the barrel nut. Precision machined from heavy-duty steel bar stock for years of reliable service. Available for the 308 AR.

308 AR M-PRO 7 AR15 CLEANING KIT

308 AR M-PRO 7 AR15 CLEANING KIT

Brownells has teamed up with M-Pro 7 to develop this cleaning kit specifically for maintaining an AR-type rifle in peak operating condition. Now you can clean your AR using the same operationally tested products used by the United States Armed Forces. Inside the kit’s compact hardshell case you’ll find M-Pro 7 Gun Cleaner that safely penetrates deep beneath even tough, scorched-on carbon fouling to lift away the gunk and leave the bore sparkling clean. M-Pro 7 Cleaner/Lubricant/Protectant delivers superior lubrication and corrosion protection, and can also be used for quick cleaning on the go, when there isn’t enough time for the complete cleaning routine. You get a military-style multi-section steel cleaning rod with a folding handle, plus five high-quality bronze brushes to clean ARs in the standard .223/5.56mm and .308/7.62mm calibers, as well as 9mm and .45 chamberings, plus a brush for cleaning the bolt carrier way—critical for maintaining reliable weapon cycling. There’s plenty of absorbent cotton flannel patches in three sizes to fit all those calibers, plus the M-Pro 7 Weapons Maintenance Guide. Due to its non-hazardous and non-flammable contents, this kit meets TSA regulations for legal transport in checked baggage aboard commercial airliners.
