    I need some help torquing a barrel into an upper anybody in se pdx willing to help me out ? I will pay in your choice of gourmet beer sucks when you get every last part you think you need and it all falls apart, i never knew barrels were milled to the front sight gas block so i think my best bet is a pri clamp on rail height gas block anybody have experience with them?

    If the only thing you need is a torque wrench and you don't want to spend the mony to use it once, I'd recommend just renting one. Most auto-supply stores (O'Reilly's, Napa, AutoZone...) have loaner tools that you can use for the day (you just need to put your CC on file).

    Brownell's is cheaper but they are both too expensive, even though they work really great. I have access to a cnc milling machine so I am going to make my own.
