A Cool Tool for Installing an AR Rifle Handguard

In this short video, MidwayUSA’s Larry Potterfield shows us how to install an AR’s handguard using a handy-dandy little tool for prying the delta ring.

You can order a similar tool from Brownells here for $34.99. Cheaper versions are out there, but usually get poor reviews.

The entire video is just 1:05 long, so it gets to the point quickly.

Some folks say you shouldn’t need a tool to do this job… but I know from experience that sometimes the delta ring can be mighty stubborn, and if you do much of this sort of work, a tool like this looks mighty handy from here.¬†What do you think?
