I got mine at birth. Matching set, one on the right (even came with a trigger finger) and the left one is equipped to slap the bolt release.

Good for taking out the garbage too.

But Brownells will work also.

I thought about buying one before I got my new friend. Glad I didn't. I can do it with my hands. I am not overly strong or anything. It may take me a few tries but I can do it. It is definitely easier with two people though. There is a thread somewhere I believe that shows how to make one for about $3.00 if you want to go that route.

I don't know why but the rifle length hand guards seem to be easier to remove than the carbine length. In either case I was able to remove it with my bare hands till I fucked up my left paw so I have to use the tool now.

I just use a large set of pliers with the rubber coated handles. I put the delta ring in between the coated handles and push down.

ETA: To answer your question, Tapco, EE, Brownells.

I'm one of those guys who buys the RIGHT tool for every job, even if I'm only using it once. That being said, I bought one after the first time I removed my handguard and reinstalled it. I've never used it since I bought it, but the next time I decide to remove my handguard, it will be a breeze.

When I ordered a new forearm for my Rem 870 shotgun, I made sure to get one of those nut wrenches and boy did that make all the difference in the world. Even with the right tool, it was tough.
