It cost me $175.00 to find out, so I hope it works.
Edit: Alright, I have been reading the instructions and fiddling with the Super Reaction Rod for about a day now and I think it should work but it's a pain in the ass to use. You have to re-adjust the brass wedges every time you change the direction of torque, so if you are installing a new barrel, every time you tighten or loosen the barrel nut to smooth out the threads before you go for your final alignment you have to re-adjust the brass wedges.
I emailed Geissele about this and was told to just remove the brass wedges and use it like a standard Reaction Rod to install a barrel and that the brass wedges are mainly meant to be used to remove a tight or stuck barrel nut. The brass wedge system is not really made to be used in situations where you are constantly changing the direction of torque.
I would much rather have the simplicity of the Windham tool.
