What's the best source on the internet or mail order for AR tools. I'm looking for a GI type barrel wrench to use with a torque wrench. I know I can get one from brownells, but it's like $30 bucks!

For the GI wrench check Bushmaster. If I remember right it was around $10.00. A better choice would be one of the aftermarket wrenches like DPMS or Oly Arms. I stripped out a stubbern barrel nut once with the GI tool.

ETA: Yep, $10.95

This style in my opinion is better and more versatile.

The OA barrel wrench is the best I've found. I can't see any reason to go with anything different.

For $30 I'd get this one instead.

Thanks ,for the pointers. Can those armorors tools be used with a torque wrench? That's the only reason I was looking at the GI tool....for use with a torque wrench.

Yes they have a square drive for a torque wrench. I have the wrench pictured here from Del-Ton. It’s made by DPMS. I’m very pleased with it.
