I have attached a few pictures of the tool I modified to make a barrel nut remover. It will work on all calibers. I bought a pair of nut splitter tools at Tractor...

Watched several videos, including one that went through a complete takedown of the rifle. This allowed me to clean it thoroughly before trying...
