New Rem Model 8 barrel tool for sale

Post by cantgrowup » Fri Jan 24, 2020 6:13 pm

I have designed and commissioned a custom Remington Model 8/81 barrel shroud removal tool for sale. It utilizes one end for removal of the barrel nut (using a extended tip set screw) and the other end for removal of the barrel jacket bushing. A .30 cal. nylon jag (8-32 thread) is included for centering the tool in the barrel. Either end of the tool will accept jags. Other 8-32 threaded jags can be substituted for other calibers. The handle is secured by an O-ring and the tool easily breaks down without tools.

I had five (5) prototypes built and three (3) are already spoken for. I'm asking $80 plus S&H for each of the two remaining prototypes. If there is sufficient interest, I will commission more to be built for sale. Send me a message if interested.

You need to comission a tool like this because your tabs will break when trying to loosen a stubborn BJB. I use a machinist square ruler of the correct thickness with a large adjustable wrench in place of the tool shown because it is not available

I can understand that. I like your suggestion of using a ruler and crescent wrench for a stubborn rusted up bushing. My tool is more for normal barrel assembly work. I broke down the barrel assemblies on all of my seven 8/81s the first time using a friend's die wrench tool with an insert that had little tabs on one end and the set screw on the other. I didn't like having to loosen the die wrench screws and flipping the insert to switch operations. The little tabs worked on his tool, so I followed the same rationale.

That is a great looking "combo" takedown tool! I'd love to see some members get them and review them. I bet it works really good. Are you going to advertise these outside the forums?

Well... to be honest with you I figured if I couldn't garner enough interest in the only website dedicated to Remington Model 8/81s for a new barrel takedown tool, then there isn't much value in marketing outside of the the forum.... or hope in making more than the remaining two prototypes. Apparently no one needs a new takedown tool.

Although this site has a ton of members, only a few are active & fewer post. I get inquiries frequently about take-down tools. Next one I get i'll send your way. Keep this post on-going. Every 8/81 owner needs 1 good take down tool.

I bought the tool I use, which is similar to this one, on eBay. Might be a place to go.

I would try an eBay listing eBay has a lot of traffic compared to one forum.
Once these Model 8 and 81 Rifles have been disassembled and thoroughly cleaned there's really no reason to take the barrel assembled back apart.

cantgrowup: I would love to buy one of your spanner wrenches. If you have any to sell, please let me know how I could buy one.
Many thanks!

There are many like it, but this one is mine.
