    Looks good. A bit pricey though.

      I was going to say… better than a $20 wrench? Doesn’t look like it. Never heard of anyone breaking them, either.

      What’s next, a $50 delta ring tool to compete with the $8 ones?

    • Nicks87

      Yeah I dont know what MagPul is thinking with the price on these. I was like “hey, kinda cool.” Then I saw the price and was like “F*** that schizz.”

      The wrench yes, but the bev block is priced right.

    What country is it made in?

    • Zachary marrs

      Its magpul, so id guess in the usa, still not worth it imho

      • Thracian Beast

        They just need to write OPERATOR TORQUEMASTER on the side.

        BUST EM!!!! ;]

    The block looks pretty cool. I like how it’s reversible, and that it engages the barrel extension and doesn’t cause your to apply excessive force to the barrel extension pin as with normal upper receiver blocks.

      Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I could take or leave the wrench, but that block is pretty nice. The engagement with the barrel extension reminds me of the KAC tool.

  • me ohmy

    yeah.. but 80 bones for stuff already out there.. WAYYYyy late to the party MAGPUL..

  • You gotta be kidding. 80 bucks just because it says Magpul?

    • gunslinger

      lifetime replacement?

    Looking at the wrench from a handtool industy standpoint,
    it’s roughly twice as expensive as it should be.

    Considering it’s just a cast part, not dye forged and milled, heat treated, like hand tools normally are, it is way overpriced, as others mentioned.
    Of course for this particular tool being a cast mild piece is not a disadvantage,
    because you can’t work on sensitive aluminium and mild steel parts with heat treated steel tools, but there is absolutely no reason why this tool should cost more than $40,
    even considering its “specialized tool” nature.
    Even if it’ll run around $60 it’s too much, I’m not feeling the usual Magpul bang for the buck ratio here.
