As far as gunsmithing goes, I'm an AR guy and have all the tools for any job. I also have an M1 Garand and have been wanting to replace a badly worn out barrel for many years. Now that I have a barrel, I'm doing the "live & learn" process with M1 tools. I bought this tool thinking that it was to remove the lower handguard, by removing the band/clip while the handguard was still on the barrel. WRONG. This tool is only for removal of the clip AFTER the handguard has been removed from the barrel. There is a illustration included that shows the clip being removed from an already removed handguard. OK. So, I learned something new there. I decided to go onto YouTube to see if there was a video on how to remove the handguard and I found one. Now for lesson number 2...In the video there "should be" a longer end to the pliers than what this one has. It says in the product description that this is USGI spec from an early manual. It turns out that it is more difficult to remove the clip with jaws that are the same length. The clip "ends" are not the same length. It would also appear that my clip has an end that may not be perfectly "level" and may be the reason why the tool doesn't catch fully??? I see there are a couple of other manufacturers that sell these type of pliers but with one jaw about an eighth to 3/16" longer (I'm guessing). For my clip, that would be perfect. I'm going to modify these to make one jaw a little shorter than the other. I may also buy a new clip. Granted, this is not something I'm going to be doing often, if at all after this project, but I want to make sure the tool works perfectly so the job gets done right.

The pliers did not work as advertised. They were poorly designed.
However, the return to Amazon couldn't have been better. They quickly provided all the information I needed and even included the return mailing expense to the refund amount.
I'll definately utilize Amazon in the future.

If you do attempt the removal of the rear handguard band, BUY THIS TOOL. If you use it once, it could save you a lot of headaches. There is a lot of tension in the band, and why take the chance of ruining a nice handguard?

This item doesn't work, it appears to be designed or made incorrectly. The ends don't fit correctly in the guard.
