    Don't give me AR-15-specific solutions. That's a solved problem.

    I need a good barrel vise that I can use to hold barrels while I pull muzzle devices from them and put on ASR muzzle devices. I have a lot of different kinds of rifles, and need something that can deal with all of them, or at least most of them. I would love recommendations. Thanks!

    The vise offered by David Tubb will work with just about any barrel. I have one and it has served me well for years. Search David Tubb and you should find his site. It used to be Superior Shooting Systems but, I think it is now, don't quote me on that though.

    EDIT: Just checked his site and it is no longer showing.

    Just make your own. Put two 2x4 in a vise and run a spade bit of appropriate diameter(a little smaller than the barrel to be worked on) right down between them. A little rosin will help grip for stubborn removals.
