Re: Remington spanner wrench Project ** pic heavy

Cam,I don't think this wrench was heat treated,the two tips are buggered.Before I try to loosen anything on a gun I use a penetrating formula called BP Blaster,let it set and then loosen the part with out any problem.I'm just going to fix the wrench and heat treat it.J.J.
