I have one that's barreled many a fal. Works great.
You may want to smooth up the inside edges with some wet/dry sandpaper.
Don't forget to put a wrap or two of electrical or masking tape around the receiver where it contacts.

I just used one on my first build. Wrapped the receiver with a few layers of electrical tape. It worked fine, and didn't leave any marks. Ed

If your barreling a Coonan, you will have to relieve a little off the bottom of the wrench for the receiver clearance. Look close at the front of the receiver, just in front of the mag well. There is a square "boss" left there, that isn't there on the Imbel's.
You just have to relieve a little bit where the corners of the boss hit on the wrench, then "no marks". Didn't know that before I barreled my Coonan, I've got marks.

The AGI wrench has worked fine for me.
I didn't modify the wrench itself, but as suggested, I also wrap several layers of electrical tape around the receiver before mounting the wrench. Works fine.
I had the same issue as MarkBall described with Coonan receivers...left slight marks on bottom portion of receiver. Not very noticeable, but there are marks.
Plan to "sweeten" up wrench a little bit before I do my next Coonan.

I've built more than 15 using my AGI wrench - never any problems.

It's not really a problem. But if you don't watch out for the Coonan receiver, you just rub off the parkerizing at the corners of that boss. If your planning to blast & repark, it's no biggie.
If your gonna paint over the park, it could show up later. Still, I'm gonna "tweak" my receiver wrench a little. Not by much, just enough to avoid the corners of the "boss".

I've used mine for many, many builds. As was stated before, smooth the inside edges, relieve the bottom a bit for Coonans and use electrical tape, and it works great!
