These action wrenches have the features we prefer in an action wrench. They are rear entry only, meaning that regardless of your port configuration you can use this wrench on almost any 2 lug Bat ever made. They are machined from stainless steel so they are strong, won’t rust and won’t damage your action or barrel. They have an upward bend to clear your stock and scope eyepiece. Lastly, these action wrenches include an 18” long handle! This last feature eliminates the need for a second tool (end wrench or socket wrench) to torque the wrench, eliminating the chance for a second tool slipping off and damaging a stock, scope or action.
This is the perfect tool to swap barrels without pulling the barreled action from the stock and removing the scope. The upward bend is placed right to clear the stock and the scope without risk of damaging either. I was concerned about being able to tighten properly without a torque wrench but quickly found that the 18" T handle gives enough leverage and a good feel for the barrel shoulder seating against the action. Another well-designed and executed tool from PMA!
This is the 2nd PMA action wrench I have puschased. Over the years, I have used several makers, and models. These are nicely machined, and will work with any stock/action combo.
