I now have to decide whether or not to return this armorer's tool for which I really don't have any pressing need. I only needed it to deal with the castle nut that isn't an issue, since I have the fixed stock, not the collapsible stock. I hate to return it, because the company that sold it was very fast at filling my order, and I hate to return an order that was really because of my stupidity. On the other hand, $37.55 is a bit of money. Perhaps I will just keep it.

Armageddon Armory Took Care of the Rifle
I ended up having Armageddon Armory in Nampa install a Double Star ambidextrous end plate on the AR-15 (it looks rather like this one made by GRG), and a front sight sling adapter that looks like this one by ProMag (although I think it was another maker). It was just over $50 and they were happy to install it while I waited. I could have done this myself, and probably saved a few dollars (because the parts are slightly cheaper online), but it's always nice to have someone do the job who doesn't have to look up the sequence, and I don't mind paying a bit more to have a local business do the job.
