    Hey guys,
    I have a nice V Seven barrel and upper that I had put together but I'm a paraplegic and don't have the upper body to do the job correctly. Is there anyone here that could save me? I have $20.00 bucks and a new friendship to give in return. You would have to bring a torque wrench and I have a vice on a bench. I could bring my upper to you if you have a workshop or garage that is wheelchair accessible. Thanks in advance. NWFA has the best folks around.
    Thanks

    Johnny

    Hey Johnny,

    Is it a standard GI barrel nut that an USGI armorer’s tool can turn or is it proprietary? If so do you have the proprietary tool to fit it? A vice-block to hold the upper will also be required, do you have that already? If not, will it fit in a standard vice-block?

    I have a standard armorer’s tool, a torque wrench, and standard vice-block that I could bring over and help you out with. Need more info.... ;)

    I have the proprietary tool that came with the titanium barrel nut. I have a vice but I need to find the block parts to mount the upper receiver into the vice.

    @jbett98 is a good guy, I bought concrete tools from him a while back (still haven’t used them yet, too busy building structures this summer, LOL).... he’ll help you out, but let me know if something comes up and he can’t make it!

    If all else fails, use one of these. Reef it until the barrel nut sings.
