Part removal?

When dissembling a pump shotgun there is a bolt with two notches on each side that threads down onto the forearm wood. What is this called and is there a tool that rest onto the two notches to aid in twisting it off?

That would be a fore end/fore stock retainer nut in my red neck glossary of made up terms...

The tool is officially a "spanner wrench" but these are best ordered for the make and model of gun...

In the mechanic world, we can get away with buying them by size or making them... but gun tools need to be more precise...

I'd try a rubber strap wrench first, just don't reef on it hard enough to crush the nut.
