Other than ammo and cleaning supplies the other important thing I carry in my range bag is a good multi-tool. The one I’m currently using is the Real Avid AR-15 tool which we reviewed a while back, Breach-Bang-Clear also did a test of 4 popular Multi-Tools on the market. Multitasker Tools just debuted their new pen shaped TWIST multitool which includes a bunch of the most commonly used tools for maintaining and cleaning your AR-15.
They’re CNC machined out of T-6061 aluminum and is Type III mil-spec anodized with o-ring sealed caps. It’s pretty compact for everything that it includes, it’s thicker than a standard Sharpie marker but much slimmer than your standard folding multi-tool. Unlike a traditional mult-tool it doesn’t have pliers however, but it does have a decent selection of other tools.
It includes the following:
– Flat head scredriver, which is also the pocket clip.
– Aimpoint turret adjuster
– M16 A2 style front sight adjustment tool
– 3/32 pin punch, a.k.a. a Glock punch
– Carbon scraper
– Dental pick
– 10 popular 1/4″ hex bits
– 8-32 male threaded post for OTIS cleaning accessories
They should retail for around $50 and will be available from Multitasker Tools distributors by the end of December. Check out multitaskertools.com for more info.
