    Any idea what this tool was used for?

    I saw this tool listed on a popular auction site recently. It's being described as an Armorer's "Reconditioning" Tool. Can you guys identify it's purpose? It was suggested as being for an M1icon Carbine. - Bob

    Dunno for sure without dimensions, but the business end looks to be the correct shape to remove/ replace the gas cylinder. Canít figure out what the spring is for though, so probably wrong

    My thoughts exactly, and I think the "gas system" was mentioned in the description. Maybe the spring would sit up against the receiver and maintain pressure
    (and alignment) while turning the nut? It's Knurled, so you could turn it with your fingers, or use a bar in the hole if necessary. There could be another piece for "chasing" threads that fits into the end of the tool for alignment, and having lugs so it could be turned in the same manner as the nut. I'll see if I can find and post a link to the auction. Need to check the rules to see if that's OK first. - Bob
