All the Tools You Will Ever Need for AR Builds: Real Avid’s Master Kit

The guys at Real Avid have done it again. Their kit of Master Grade Tools and how-to information equips you to confidently tackle everything from building your own gun from the ground up to customizing or modifying an existing gun. I have built a lot of ARs with junk tools. I lost parts and scratched receivers. This kit from Real Avid makes everyone look good and is worth every penny.

With better tolerances, materials and expanded capability, every tool is carefully designed to make each job as simple and easy to execute as possible. Housed in a professional tool case and equipped with step-by-step instructions, you will be able to work smarter and create better guns regardless of your experience level.

First off, all the tools are securely organized in a cool form fitted, self inventorying, purpose-built storage case

Here is what you get:
Armorer’s Master Wrench with Replacement Hammer Heads
Lug-Lok Upper Vise Block
Smart-Fit AR15 Lower Vise Block
AR15 Master Bench Block
Torque Wrench
Easy-Grip Handguard Tool
AR15 Pivot Pin Tool
AR15 Pivot Lock
AR15 Pin Punch Set
Pin Alignment Tool
Accu-Grip Picks
Bore Illuminator/Safety Flag
Front Sight Adjuster Tool
Professional Tool Case

Everything in their is professional grade. You can buy some components separate if you already have tools. I upgraded my drawer full of ancient junk for this sleek science fiction box of excellence. Here are my favorites:

Armorer’s Master Wrench with Replacement Hammer Heads
This is the new standard for a professional armorer’s wrench. Smarter, stronger, ergonomic. It fits your hand and your gun – precisely. The Real Avid Armorer’s Master Wrench features best-in-class strength, precision fitment and ergonomic intelligence. Wrenches seat squarely for a no-slip fit on stubborn barrel nuts, castle nuts, muzzle brakes, or fixed stock receiver extensions. Industry first torque wrench attachment location is optimally positioned to provide consistent torque for all nuts. As a bonus, interchangeable hammer heads make the Armorer’s Master Wrench a “Master” hammer as well! This is the right tool for the job… and for you.



Lug-Lok Upper Vise Block
Traditional clamp style upper blocks fit poorly and can exert enough inward pressure to damage the receiver when applying torque to a barrel nut or flash suppressor. That’s bad design. So, we designed an upper block that leverages the strongest part of the gun – the barrel lugs inside the star chamber. The Lug-Lok is precision machined and precisely fits into all Mil-Spec uppers. It mates perfectly with the barrel lugs, while allowing you to rotate the upper to be able to work on different sides. There are 2 vise pins that allow you to hold the upper at multiple working angles and prevent unwanted rotation during high torque application. The lock knob keeps Lug-Lok seated into the barrel lugs. The result – the safest, easiest and smartest way to lock down an AR15 upper into a bench vise.


Smart-Fit AR15 Lower Vise Block
The Smart-Fit AR15 Vise Block is the best lower receiver vise block you’ll ever use. Magwell sizes have a notoriously wide range of tolerances, and traditional blocks create wiggle and wobble on a gun vise. Smart-Fit’s design solves that. It expands to fit any AR15 magwell, making loose, sloppy fitting blocks a thing of the past. Insert the block into the magazine well and simply rotate the adjustment handle to tighten the fit. This block can also be used with an inverted lower receiver to work on pistol grips or allow easy access to the underside of your AR15. For hassle-free cleaning, we included the AR15 Pivot Lock for hands-free access to the chamber and barrel.




AR15 Pin Punch Set
Includes every standard & roll pin punch needed to build or work on an AR15








AR15 Master Bench Block
This block is like having an extra set of hands to work on your gun build. The AR15 Master Bench Block holds 5 key AR15 components in 8 different orientations helping you to knock out and install up to 13 different pins. The no-slip coating grips your bench so it won’t slide around. Clear, engraved labels tell you what component fits where, and what size punch you’ll need to knock out the pins. Strong magnets immediately grasp any pin you punch out and hold it securely to the block. It even includes storage for common size pins. Work smarter…build it better!




Quality tools make every job better. Great tools in a form fitted box? Best kit ever. Most of us have lost pins ejected at high speeds and lost forever. Real Avid ends those days for ever. Less cursing, better builds. What are you waiting for?
