Great, but be careful.Review by Kevin

This is a pretty good tool, very useful for mounting your upper and lower receivers in a vise.

However, you run into a higher chance of damaging the index pin on your barrel. To understand how this works, you need to understand the flow of torque.

When you tighten your barrel nut, you eventually need to apply more and more twisting force. This force is called "torque". The vast majority of the friction on a barrel nut is between the nut and the threads on the upper receiver. The more torque you apply, the more things want to twist. When you secure the upper by using the barrel extension (which is what the BEV Block does), you need to transfer the torque to that barrel extension.

In other words, when you torque the barrel nut, the torque goes through the nut, to the upper receiver, THROUGH THE INDEX PIN, to the barrel extension, then to the BEV Block.

The index pin was never made to handle excessive amounts of torque, and you run into a very high chance of snapping it with higher amounts of torque.

The BEV Block is great if you are assembling your rifle and only need to torque the barrel nut to 30ft/lbs (as per mil-spec), or if you have a billet upper receiver (which won't work with a clamshell mount).

However, if your upper was improperly assembled and you need to take off a barrel nut that requires large amounts of torque, you will have a HIGH CHANCE OF DESTROYING YOUR INDEX PIN, RENDERING YOUR BARREL USELESS.

The safest way, by far, is by using a clam shell type block to mount your receiver. It distributes the torque across the entire upper receiver and you run zero risk of breaking your index pin. Unfortunately, this option is not possible for people with a billet upper receiver. (Posted on 9/12/2016)

Hard to beat the value!Review by Thomas

Best upper/lower block for the price. You can hold lowers by inserting it in the magwell or hold upper by sliding it in the bolt carrier cavity. It then slides into the barrel extension. Put the retainer pin in and torque the barrel nut. Safer on your receiver then a clam shell. (Posted on 12/10/2015)
