Mesa Tactical Offers AR Stock Wrench Bottle Opener Multi-Use Tool

AR Stock Wrench Bottle Opener Multi-Use Tool

The AR Stock Wrench Bottle Opener integrates a standard AR-15 stock wrench with a handy bottle opener.

Mesa Tactical today announced, in a radical departure from its usual offerings for enhancing shotguns and carbines, the availability of their new AR Stock Wrench Bottle Opener.

This is Mesa Tactical’s second foray into the dual-purpose tools product category,  following the company’s pioneering Telescoping Shotgun Stock Multi-tool (which could be used as a stock wrench as well as a pump shotgun forend wrench) introduction in June of 2011.  A Telescoping Shotgun Stock Multi-tool has since been included in every Mesa Tactical telescoping shotgun stock kit.

The AR Stock Wrench Bottle Opener boldly takes this idea a step further by integrating with the standard AR-15 stock wrench a handy bottle opener, which has been comprehensively tested on beverage bottles in a variety of common (US Imperial) sizes by Mesa Tactical’s crack in-house quality assurance team, and their families.

The AR Stock Wrench Bottle Opener design started with an observation by Mesa Tactical President Mitch Barrie.  “Like most busy people,” Barrie began, “We never have time to stake our AR-15 stock nuts, so we always keep an AR-15 stock wrench handy, with our car keys.”  But Barrie made a surprising discovery in late 2014.  “Almost every time we used a stock wrench to tighten an AR-15 stock nut, we soon, within an hour or so, found ourselves desiring a cool, refreshing bottled beverage, and there was almost never a bottle opener handy when you needed one.

“At that point,” Barrie concluded, “Combining the functions of AR-15 stock wrench and bottle opener into a single convenient tool appeared to be an obvious advancement in range bag tool development.”

No expense has been spared in the manufacture of Mesa Tactical’s AR Stock Wrench Bottle Opener, which is stamped from 11 gauge ASTM A1011 CS Type B hot-rolled carbon steel alloy,

then plated using caustic black oxide operations at 285 to 300 degrees Fahrenheit to produce an attractive military spec MIL-DTL-13924D black iron magnetic coating.  The words, “MESA TACTICAL COSTA MESA USA” are stamped onto the surface of the tool.

How it works

The Mesa Tactical AR Stock Wrench Bottle Opener has two ends:

  1. A roundy sort of arm with a nub at its point; and
  2. A loopy bit with a beveled edge.

To use the AR Stock Wrench Bottle Opener to loosen or tighten a the stock nut on a Mesa Tactical Faro Adapter, Telescoping Stock Adapter or any AR-15, the nub at the point of the roundy arm is engaged with the square notch in the nut, and pressure applied to the tool until the torque thus generated turns the nut.

When, as often seems to occur within an hour after working on the stock nut, sometimes sooner, a cool refreshing bottled beverage is desired, the loopy end of the AR Stock Wrench Bottle Opener is deployed by the simple expedient of turning the tool around in the hand.  One edge of the bottle cap is inserted into the loop and the AR Stock Wrench Bottle Opener pulled up to release the cap from the bottle.

Reversing the order of operations is not recommended by Mesa Tactical, and eye protection should be worn at all times while employing the AR Stock Wrench Bottle Opener.

Mesa Tactical is exhibiting at the 2015 NRA Show in Tennessee, booth 440. We will be displaying some of our most popular and new products this year which include:

Lucy™ 20ga Stock Adapter for Rem 870 – this elegantly simple coupler simply bolts to the back of a 20 gauge 870 receiver, allowing the 12 gauge stock to then rigidly bolt to the adapter. This greatly increases the options and availability of butt stocks for the 20 gauge shotgun. The 20 gauge Remington 870 is an excellent platform for personal defense, but it suffered from fewer tactical butt stock offerings than its 12 gauge counterpart. The Lucy Adapter solves this problem.

Urbino® Tactical Stock System for Moss 930 – specifically designed as a tactical stock, the Urbino has features that make it a definitive upgrade over original butt stocks. Made from injection-molded glass-filled nylon, the Urbino has a “tactical”12½ inch length of pull (LoP) for enhanced weapon control and use with body armor; optional field-adjustable cheek riser to provide improved cheek weld when used with optics; optional Limbsaver® butt pad for greater shooting comfort, especially during long training or certification courses; shock-absorbing over-molded rubber grip to reduce shooter fatigue; and a variety of standard and proprietary sling mounting options.

Faro™ Stock Adapter for FN SCAR – this new adapter allows the FN-SCAR to use virtually any AR-15 butt stock. The availability of different styles and configurations AR-15 butt stocks, now usable on the FN-SCAR, increases the adaptability and versatility of this fine carbine. The Faro™ Adapter fits both the SCAR 16S and SCAR 17S.

SureShell® Shotshell Carrier and Rail for Beretta 1301 – this new shotshell carrier system, offered in four, six and eight shell configurations, is machined from aircraft aluminum and features an integrated receiver length aluminum Picatinny rail to support mounting optics, lasers or other accessories.

Mohawk™ Modular Forend for Rem Versa Max – the Mohawk modular forend modularity and adaptability make it the best tactical forend available for the R12/Versa Max platform. Integral accessory pockets on the right and left side accept inserts as required by the shooter or situation. It has an ergonomic shape and finger grooves maximizing weapon handling and control. Vertical grooves provide a positive and secure grip. The Mohawk modular forend comes standard with a ventral Picatinny mount at the front of the forend.  An installed sling swivel stud is included. Also available are an optional forward steel sling plate or hook loop, either standard or ambidextrous.
