Looking for a way to work on your upper receiver?

With the MI-URR you can install forward assists and dust covers without having a barrel installed.
This tool also works great for barrel nuts and muzzle devises as it has a spline that goes through the charging handle slot and takes the stress off of the barrel extension index pin.

Looks good. I would pick one up if I didn't already have a Reaction Rod.

Understood. If you ever need to work on uppers that do not have a barrel installed keep us in mind. :D

So, just to clarify, is the torque hitting the charging handle slot, or the hardened locking lugs?

I like this design, but not sure where the pressure is really supposed to be applied.

My biggest concern, of course, would be busting an extension, anyways, because it's not fully "locked in".

It looks like those slot exist for the lugs, but they don't seem as deeply cut/prominent as the others.

Grea job guys, you really continue to push the envelope with new tool designs.

Both, just like the Windham Weaponry barreling jig and the 2UnqueLLC barreling jig. This type of design keeps your indexing pin from shearing and your sights in alignment while tightening or loosening a barrel nut. Unlike the standard reaction rod style tools.
