Hi,

Looking to get the tools needed before my LRB gets built, and in looking at Brownell's, the castlenut pliers, they had reviews that stated "they break and damage rifle", where do I get these pliers that are GTG?

Thanks

I use MD Labs' XF7 grease. This is the same grease that Smith Enterprise uses on the M14's they are building for the US Army. Brownell's has it:

SA Inc. makes great quality castle nut pliers. I've had a set for a few years now with no issues (and I've used them a bit).

Get the suppressor and gas system you want and just forget about the pliers. Let the smith do it when you send it out after the barrel is shot out.
