Ratings & Reviews
Wish I'd have had this years ago

faster than the action blocks, doesn't mar the finish, you can put the upper at any angle you'd like. Breaks the barrel nut much smoother. I needed something for my HK MR556 so I gave this a shot, great tool.

Need more information........

<br>It won't fit into the barrel extension even after a scary amount of effort. I was afraid I'd ruin my barrel extension. I was very disappointed.""
<br>Charles, you need to do more than this, you need to return it and tell us what they said, Even Rolls Royce's get returned from time to time with a problem. Another reason is safety, If you have a problem with your upper wouldn't you like to know about it before you have a dangerous malfunction. I dont work for Giessele but Ive bought triggers from them and found them to be an excellent company eager to fix anything that is truly wrong with their products. Call em up. Then get back to us, we'd all like to hear what the problem was. Michael
Expensive, but works very well

Works beautifully for torquing barrel nuts and muzzle devices. If you're going to be assembling gas blocks, consider getting Geissele's "Armorer's Package" that includes their gas block tools as well.
I have done a few builds with a vise block and this reaction rod will make your life so much easier. It will not put pressure on your upper. Every bit helps accuracy.

Looks like it will be a great tool when I remove the flash suppressor on several rifles.

Primary Arms delivers! They were the only ones who had this in stock and not charging above msrp.

It's a little shorter than expected but other than that it was just as described shipped and delivered very quickly will definitely order from them again
Fast shipping, Excellent Quality
After I ordered I got a shipping confirmation in 20mins talk about fast. This product is just what i needed to install my muzzle brake on my ar. The quality is as expected coming from Geissele.
Perfect tool if you are working on the barrel of an AR-15 that requires torquing.

Perfect tool for quality work. Tried using barrel vise jaws to install muzzle brake but upper receiver wanted to keep on rotating when carefully torquing brake. Ordered this tool and completed work in less than 5 minutes. Customer service was also excellent which I used to inquire about order. Top notch service unmatched by competitors as far as I am concerned.
Very well made. Much better quality than those cheap knock-offs. Makes working on uppers much easier than using vice blocks.
The Reaction Rod is a good piece of kit for anyone who does more than basic maintenance on the AR platform.It allows assembly minimimizing stresses and allowing proper torquing. It is essential if assembling anything with an integrated rail such as the VLTOR VIS or Mega Monolithic.

Worth the money. Used to install barrel and muzzle device without worry of damaging upper or breaking the index pin. Fits very securely into upper receiver on your feed ramps.

PRIMARY Arms had the best price and I received my Geissele rod quickly. With the increase in the number of manufactures making billet lowers it gets expensive buying different mounts for each one. The G rod works on all of them without worrying about scratching the finish or putting undue stress on, what can at times, be a very expensive lower. If you had a "unicorn" lower would you trust it to a cheap delron and pin mount?
Fantastic tool, priced too high
by Kevin H
This tool does just what it says. It is fantastic to safely install and remove muzzle devices, and makes working on gas blocks quick work. I do have concerns about the pressure placed on the indexing pin when using this to install barrel nuts as opposed to an action block.
by Scott Reid
Expensive? Yes. Quality? Definitely!Much better option than using any other upper receiver type clamp. It fits snug, feels rock solid when attaching a barrel or compensator. Very happy with this purchase!
Interesting new device
The Geissele Reaction Rod is built like a tank. So far all I've done with it is remove a muzzle device and barrel nut but it worked fine for that. However, if the device is not held vertically in the vice it will slip in the direction of the torque. Also the barrel will obviously slip off if the rod is angled downward.
The Reaction Rod is the most professional and sturdiest method available for working on anything on the upper. From barrel nuts and rails to muzzle devices on SBR's where there isn't any barrel to clamp, this is the only way to go.I fully expect this tool to outlive me. It's that well built.

Super easy to use. Excellent quality. Relieves any concerns about placing stress on an upper receiver when removing or installing a barrel nut.
