Brownells sells a Barrel Nut Wrench for Remington 7400's (http://www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/store/ProductDetail.aspx?p=8872&title=REMINGTON+742%2c+4%2c+7400+WRENCH), but they want $27 bucks for it. I realize it's a handy-dandy little item and everything, but $27 bucks seems almost absurd for something that simple, and something I'll only use two or three times in a given year.

Can anyone suggest a cheaper alternative, or a work-around I could pull off with common gunsmithing tools?

I made one by taking a file to a 3/4" open end wrench. didn't have to remove much metal, it works great. much cheaper than brownells. hope this helps,jim

I just got a 742 in this weekend that my home-made wrench won't fit! the outside of the jaws jam on the action bars. this morning i'm going to use a dremel to make the outside of the jaws match the shape of the brownells wrench.
I have used this wrench on about ten to fifteen 742s and 7400s it's worked fine. this one is an early 742 . will post a picture or diagram when i get the wrench readjusted. jim
