5 of 5 Great tool! March 27, 2020
Reviewer: Ethan from Sequim, WA United States  
Love the tool! I'm using it to build my first AR10 using an Aero M5 upper and a Faxon match barrel. This tool fits these components perfectly. The removable tongue feature on top of the rod is something to appreciate; it adds extra support and reduces torque stress on the barrel extension lugs when cranking on a barrel nut or muzzle device. When removed, it enables a person to quickly or intermittently rotate the upper assembly without unlocking the tool from the vise in order to rotate it. As with other Midwest industries products, this rod is made of quality material and craftsmanship. One thing that would improve this tool, is if it came with a bottom plug feature like that of the Real Avid Lug Lock rod.  This would enable the upper receiver to be locked in place and prevent it from sliding forward on the rod; a major benefit when removing a tight fitting hand guard or gas block. Nonetheless, I still give this tool a 5 star rating and recommend it to others!

5 of 5 Best Upper Receiver Rod! January 10, 2020
Reviewer: Jim Laxton from Colleyville, TX United States  
I used this for my POF 308 upper receiver.  It locks in with the barrel lug and fits tight in the receiver.  This is the best tool I have found for removing or tightening barrel nuts and muzzle devices on my AR10.

5 of 5 Best designed Receiver Rod January 30, 2019
Reviewer: bfoosh006 from United States  
I have tried the other brands... the Midwest Receiver Rod is the best one I have used out of the bunch.

The Brownells sucked because of no vise flats...and frankly is a little to short.

The Geiselle was a big step up because of the vise flats and added OAL... but without the charging handle valley that Midwest has... it would tend to spin if I didn't keep it in the correct position.. and if it would shift ( downward ) while in the vise, I had a few uppers bonk to the ground. Sure my fault, but still annoying.

The Midwest, with its CH valley addition, makes for a much stronger setup... allowing me to remove that one stubborn barrel nut, that I wasn't comfortable doing with the Geissele rod just holding onto the receiver extension.

In other words ... the added CH valley portion adds considerable support.

Wish the Midwest version had been available when I bought the other 2 brands... because I wouldn't have wasted money on those.
