PMA Gen II Barrel Vise
Quite a bit of testing went into the updated PMA Barrel Vise. From the metal finishing on the aluminum to maximize grip and minimize marks left on the barrel to the ability to handle barrels from .830" to 1.450" this barrel vise is based on the fantastic original Viper barrel vise, with a few added features we wanted.
Vise is shipped in position to handle barrels 1" - 1.450". To use the vise for barrels under 1" remove the top and rotate it 90 degrees.
PMA Recommends torquing barrel vise nuts to 40 ft-lbs.
Works great, I have an old Viper and the coating is chipped pretty bad. I like how this one doesn't have the coating and grips the barrel better without having to crank down on the nuts as much. Great value!
this vice held my 300 short mag barrel-making removal easy. would recommend.
I used this barrel vise to remove a sporter barrel from a Tikka T3. I wrapped barrel with drywall tape and torqued barrel vise to 40 ft lbs. I used the wheeler rem 700 action wrench, tapped handle a couple times and action cam loose. The barrel did not slip. Great barrel vise!
Held Savage tapered barrel by tightening small of barrel first. Tight. Then went to thicker side and tightened. Top of vise is now sloped down to muzzle. I used tennis racket tape from Walmart on barrel to not mar. Tape used on racket to keep hand from slipping. Worked.
