Our barrel removal system for flat tops provides the much needed support at the most critical area near the nut. The barrel nut end is the most rigid part of the upper so it only makes good sense to hold the upper at its most rigid point. Proper support is the essential when your barrel nut is stubborn or you need to apply a lot of force to get things lined up. Proper holding of the upper is not the only benefit of our system, it will also fit in any bench vise that opens 3". Please look at the images, they show how to properly hold your flat top upper in the horizontal position to prevent damage

Cleaning your AR upper will quicker, safer and so much easier with our rotating upper cleaning block. When side mounted your barrel points down so all the drippings can be caught in a can or on a shop rag. While it is pointing down it is so much easier to clean out the chamber with a chamber brush because the upper is safely secured to the bench allowing you to get very aggresive with the brush. Mount in the vertical postion to work on the sights or mount a scope, you have the freedom to rotate the upper to a position that makes the task at hand more relaxed. Work on your upper assemble safely because the upper block has a hardened steel pin that slides into the aluminum bracket to prevent unwanted rotation. To change the angle just loosen the bolt and select a different hole for the pin. Designed for daily use, the swivel bracket is hardcoat anodized aluminum and the upper block is precision machined from UHMW, a very tough plastic that is used in ballistic vests and medical implants. Made in the USA.
