Borden & Kelbly Hex End Action Wrench

(10 reviews) Write a Review


Some shooters and gunsmiths really prefer to use a torque wrench when installing barrels because they want to maintain the exact same headspace each time they swap a barrel back. For those who prefer to use a torque wrench we offer hex end action wrenches. We manufacture ours from stainless steel because we prefer to use a material that is rust resistant, strong, and most importantly, softer than the actions and barrels we are fitting together.


Our Hex Style Action Wrenches feature a 5/8" hex which allows installation of barrels while the action is still in most stocks. This is important to those who have "glue-ins" and like the security of torquing their barrels. We recommend the use of a non-ratcheting (low-profile) torque wrench if installing barrels with the action in the stock.


Works for Kelbly and Borden Actions

    well made

    Used in a Kelbly Stolle action. Fit was perfect with no play. I had to use a low profile torque wrench due to low tolerance between action and stock… that has nothing to do with tool, just fyi for others using for first time.

    This tool appears to be of the highest quality. It is a perfect fit inside my Kelbly Atlas receiver. I'll be back for more for other receivers.

    Borden action wrench

    Wrench is ideal for use on Remington 700 and Kelbly actions, Wrench fits much better than the ones made for 700 actions.
