    Building up a Palmetto Ar10 and I want to install free-float hand guard. I dont have the tools needed and it is my first time pulling off the barrel nut. Anyone local want to help out? Your time and tools would be worth a few beers.

    Thanks.

    Wrench in Albany... In toolbox. When you need it?

    I do not have a vice, nor a vice block but the tool is available.. (Wrench)

    I've personally never used a block. I would put wrench so the first 1/16th of a turn would be on the floor on top of carpet. I have let to have one that didn't come off that way. Using body weight makes it easy

    Happen to have a vice block as well? Will an ar15 upper vice block work on an ar10?

    Wood would be cheaper. But there are vice blocks that work with both.
