Rem700 Action Spanner

#1 Postby Weairy » Thu Jul 22, 2021 4:47 pm

Hi all,

Who can recommend what in a rear-entry style action spanner to suit Rem700 SA?

Or even better, who might have one for sale?

Cheers

I have a PMA tool action wrench from Hoplon and they are fine (other than they are not stainless steel so need oiling). Two things to note with this style are that you need to add in the cost of a 1/2 in drive 5/8 (or 16mm) 6 sided impact socket and a 1/2 inch drive torque wrench. The torque wrench can do double duty cranking down the barrel vice nuts.

If you are swapping barrels it's a very good idea to get some anti-seize for the threads. Loctite 771 is a common option.

I’ve got the BRT one and it works wells.
Use Nulon L90 on the threads per smiths recommendation.
