Sorry if this is in the wrong place.
I'm looking for a good quality AR15 Combo Armorer's Wrench Tool.
Been looking on amazon and see a lot of so so reviews on the ones available there. I'm new to the rifle world so I'm not sure what I might need so I figure a combo wrench would be the way to go.
Any help would be appreciated. After my 10 day wait I'll have a new SW MP15 Sport in my hands.

a lot of the reviews seem hard on the castle nut portion of the wrenches. I was looking at a couple, one was the dpms armorers tool and the reviews just ripped it up. So what tool is good for castle nut?

I use the Brownell's wrench. I use the DPMS wrench to tighten carbine stock nuts since the Brownell's tool isn't set up for that function..

Are there different size stock nuts? Some of the reviews on the DPMS tool were saying they were have a hard time on the castle nut with that tool and it didn't seem to fit right.

I just bought the Tapco wrench and like it very much. Made in USA with a lifetime warranty too! I also have a USGI tool and had a YHM wrench when I had YHM hand guards. Even built my own for a DPMS float tube once. Glad I finally bought the Tapco wrench. I'm constantly taking uppers apart and putting them back together it seems.

I have been building this platform for 20 years. The USGI tool is the best I have ever seen.

Its been my experience that none of the combination armorer's tools work that well, nor do they hold up under heavy use.

I have worked in armories where the USGI tool was 10-15 years old and still works perfectly.
When we would try some of the other ones they wouldnt last as long or grip as well.
