Description Technical Specs Extended Information
The CRT-15 is a professional gunsmith's tool for the removal of carbon build-up on the bolt carrier, bolt, and firing pin of AR-15 family rifles. This engineered tool features a "dead-stop" reamer that fits into the bolt carrier to remove the carbon from deep dead-end hole.

The adjustable arm of the CRT-15 is designed to function like a small hand-held lathe. The bolt is placed on the narrow pin, which it can rotate on, then when the arm is brought down onto the bolt tail its scraper edge removes the carbon as it is rotated. This design allows you to clean any bolt tail radius. The form tools in the industry cannot conform to the variance in tolerances of different bolt tail radii. (bolt tail dimensions vary between manufacturers) This sets the CRT-15 far apart from these inadequate form tools.

NEW FOR 2014 - To increase the functionality of the CRT-15 we have added scraper edges to clean the carbon off of the firing pin face. The hole that sits just behind the arm is where you drop the firing pin into. The face of the firing pin will rest on two small scraper edges. Simply rotate the firing pin with light pressure to remove the carbon build-up

Outstanding tool May 29, 2010
Reviewer: Kevin Holmes from Holladay, UT United States  
I've been shooting and cleaning M-16's and AR-15's since I entered the Army in 1987.  Without question, this is the finest tool of its kind that I have had the pleasure of using while cleaning my two current AR type guns.  This is a very well made, substantial tool.  The pictures don't really give you a sense of the heft of this tool.  Between the CRT-15 and the Bore Snake, cleaning my rifles has become very quick and easy.  Thank you folks for an excellent product, and exceptionally fast (and customer friendly) service.

Weaponeer.net review of the CRT-15 May 27, 2010
Reviewer: Gary Graham (weaponeer) from Wonewoc, WI United States  
In the past the Bolt Carrier Assy took a while to clean, That is until I tested the CRT-15 last night, and I was shocked that the tool cleaned the bolt tail radius in just a few seconds and did a better job than I did the old school way.

Actually this tool made the job cleaning that part of the bolt FUN (gasp). Once the bolt has been cleaned of all the carbon, you can turn the tool around and insert it into the bolt carrier and clean the area where the bolt sits, and within a couple seconds, that was cleaned as well and cleaned correctly.

So how does Weaponeer rate this tool?  I think this tool is essential to everyone that owns an AR15, and it you are a soldier this tool is a MUST HAVE ITEM. Your rifle deserves a good cleaning (your life may depend on it) and this tool is just right for the job and still should fit the standard M16 cleaning kit case.

I personally highly recommend this tool! You can read the full review on www.weaponeer.net
