AR-15: How To Ensure This Rifle Stays in Top Shape
Gun News Daily
Caring for a gun requires more than just the gun.
When you buy an AR-15 rifle, you need to buy more than just the AR-15. You’re also going to need ammunition, magazines, a sling, sights and an optic of some kind (if they don’t already come installed on the gun), a cleaning kit, and a variety of other tools.
Those ‘variety of other tools’ are exactly what we are going to talk about in this article. As the owner of a new AR-15, there are many responsibilities that come with owning the weapon, and one of those responsibilities is knowing how to properly take care of it. The tools that we are going to talk about in this article are exactly what make taking care of your AR-15 easier, and in some cases, they are actually fully necessary.
Take note that the tools we are going to discuss are not only needed for customizing your AR, but also for just taking care of it. And since you’re likely going to spend several hundred dollars at least on your rifle or carbine, it only makes perfect sense to also spend a little bit of extra money on the tools needed to keep your rifle in good shape with proper maintenance.
Top AR-15 tools that you need to have:
Brownell’s AR-15 Armorer’s Wrench
The Brownell’s AR-15 Armorer’s Wrench will be needed for installing and uninstalling many different kinds of AR-15 tools. Let’s put it this way: if you plan on putting your AR-15 to the workbench, you either need this tool or something just like it.
This wrench comes with numerous different head sizes, which will be needed for installing different accessories and components to your AR-15, such as stocks, compensators, and so on. This tool will also be needed for tightening any parts on your rifle that could come loose as well.
