Customer Ratings & Reviews
I just received the BEV block and used it to install a Lantac dragon on my Colt carbine. Worked like any other Magpul product, which is fantastic. Wish I'd bought it sooner.
BEV is best thing since sliced bread
I can't believe that I fought with the clamshell type for so long. This tool fits any different upper that I have tried so far and does not torque the upper. I almost destroyed a billet upper that didn't fit the clamshells right; the BEV works perfectly.
The bev block works as claimed. Great tool.
When using a Geissele reaction rod to tighten a barrel nut, the only thing preventing the upper receiver from rotating due to frictional torque is the barrel indexing pin riding in it's slot in the upper receiver. The barrel index pin and slot are not designed / intended to bear any rotational torque whatsoever. The BEV block addresses this by interfacing with the barrel extension lugs and the upper receiver by cradling the forward takedown pin lug in a slot in the BEV block itself. Thus, the barrel and the upper receiver are both individually prevented from rotating. BEV block wins.
Well Thought Out vise block
So far, I like the Magpul Bev block a lot better than a standard AR15 vise block and magwell block. The notch that fits up with the magazine release is very handy for working on a lower. When the instructions are followed, it holds the upper very securely, with any load being applied to the barrel, not the weaker aluminum upper. For clarification, the barrel insert and the backside that receives the bolt are made of steel that carries through the bottom of the block. A very strong product and not much more money than a standard lower/upper vise set.
Awesome vice block!
The magpul ar-15 bev block provides a solid lockup on the upper receiver! Makes installing upper components a breeze! I used it to put on a new BCM KMR, and it made removing the gas block and previous handguard much easier. I would highly recommend this product!
Best tool for barrel work.
This ar-15 vise block made my job so easy when I changed my Colt 6920 to a keymod free-float. I didn't have to worry about warping my upper or any other damage. Plan on building another complete upper for long-range shooting using this tool. Half the cost of the Geissele Reaction Rod.
My Magpul Bev block review
This Magpul Bev block positively holds all the parts in place while torquing a barrel nut. It engages the barrel extension lugs like a reaction rod and allows easier removal (compared to a receiver 'shell' style block) of the upper receiver to check gas tube alignment. My BC sheared the O-ring, but spares are included in a spare parts bag.
Very Satisfied with Magpul Bev block
Used the Magpul Bev block to install a replace the barrel on my AR. Worked great, no issues. Sturdy solid metal core over-molded in plastic for a no scratching problems. It's one of the Ar Accessories you should have.
