Robust and precise fit May 31, 2019
Reviewer: Robert from Egg Harbor Township, NJ United States  
Looked at two other action rods before settling on this one. Very satisfied. I like the extra part that fills the charging handle groove in the upper receiver. It’s removable too. I feel that gives much more support when working on the barrel. 100% satisfied.
Note: It does not fit the new Brownells BRN180 upper. Just an observation. Awesome tool, it was hard to find on Midwest’s website.

Top notch company top notch product May 31, 2019
Reviewer: Henry Williams from WV  
I ordered the MI-URR 1:30AM and product shipped that afternoon. Received the tool and 2 neat MI stickers 3 days later. All the good things said by others is true. And if you are creative you can use it without a vise. A little square tubing, angle iron and half hour labor and you have a dedicated fixture that can laugh at Colt's ridiculous barrel nut torque values. Get one.

This is amazing. January 30, 2019
Reviewer: mark shutt from Canton, OH United States  
Feels very solid when wrenching on uppers. I will admit, if any muzzle device is rocksett'd or red/green loctite'd on, I still use heat to soften the thread locking compound. The URR doesn't move in the vice, but I do not want to apply unnecessary torque to the extension, especially on long barrels. My personal preference and in no way is that an issue. The receiver rod is a MUST for anyone who works on ar15s (works on MCXs as well,) DIYer or armorer, end of statement!

Great tool ! January 30, 2019
Reviewer: Kris Dodge from Shalimar, FL United States  
This tool gives you the confidence to go gorilla removing a ridulously tight muzzle brake. And barrel barrel nut setting is also more comfortable than the plastic clams. And it works with Billets!  Solid piece! Worth the cost if you like changing barrels and or changing calibers.

Amazing Tool! December 12, 2018
Reviewer: CJCJ from Jacksonville , FL United States  
My brake was installed with heavy Rocksett. MI Rep Andy was incredibly helpful, providing quick email tech support before & after the sale.
I told Andy my concern about the risks of using my clamshell + the lack of rail space to use my barrel vice.
Andy offered a few alternatives. I was surprised how impartial he was when he recommended a Reaction Rod, BEV Block, or their own URR.  I expected him to insist on using their URR, but clearly he was more concerned with recommending a solution to my problem, as opposed to making a tool sale. In hindsight, I wouldnt have blamed him at all, had he insisted on the URR exclusively.
At 95 bucks, the URR isnt exactly cheap, especially for a one time use. But, even if you only use it once, its cheaper than buying a new receiver or barrel. Plus, the URR isnt just a one trick pony, it has other features that separates it from its competitors. If cost is a factor, going in half with a friend would be a wise option.
