Having an AR 15 means that you may occasionally want to change out parts, customize the weapon or make modifications. Going to a gunsmith is one option for these types of a changes, but you can also do work at home if you have the correct AR15 tools.
It is possible to purchase these tools as needed and tool by tool, or you can choose to buy a complete set, which is typically the lowest cost and most effective option. If you are buying a set, look for a quality gun component manufacturer to buy from with a solid reputation in building and designing gun parts.
Additionally, take a close look at what is included in the set. It should include all the basic tools you will require for a specific task, such as building, assembling and installing custom uppers.
Ideally, look for AR15 tools that come in a custom toolbox. This allows you to keep each tool securely in the box, keeping them like-new for years. As these won’t be tools you are using all of the time, a compact box that can slide under a gun case or easily be stored out of sight is always a great option.
Within the case, you will find a collection of necessary parts and tools. This will include an assembly vise block, various types of forearm spanner wrenches and typically a roll pin starter kit.
Top tool boxes will also include an MSTN brake wrench, front sight adjustment tool, different sizes of torque wrenches to suit different firearms. Then, to assist with installation, the kit should also include the barrel nut wrenches that will work with different makes of weapons.
For some owners, all that may be required is a specific tool. In this situation knowing the tool and the weapon it is required for will be essential. Typically, the tools will be identified for use with specific weapons such as Armalite or AR10 or AR15.
This is helpful in ensuring that the tool you choose will match with your weapon. Different weapons will have different configurations on the specific tools, such as a barrel nut wrench, which makes the wrench for the AR15 and AR10 unique and not interchangeable.
Ideally, before buying AR15 tools, double check to make sure you have the right tool for the job as well as for the gun. Also, take the time to review the website policy on returns, or make a call and verify with the company if you have any questions about what to order.
