.. works great if you like nerf tools ... As I was reassembling the gas block, one side of the tong broke off at the base .. looks like I get to order a different one that isn't so fragile

Well Made Economical Wrench

This gas cylinder wrench works great. It fits the lock on a Springfield M1A and Norinco M14S very snugly. It is made of cast aluminum so it will not damage you finish but it can leave aluminum discoloration to your gas lock. It's much more reasonably priced than the other wrenches that are on the market.
