The "Short Stack" from Gerber – Mini, Modular MSR Tools

Originally posted up over at Soldier Systems from their coverage on Warrior Expo, this little nugget was too good not to share. While many tool makers like Leatherman, Real Avid, and others have been moving towards fully integrated MSR Multi-tools, Gerber has taken a radically different approach with the “Short Stack.”

The goal was to fit into a MagPUl MIAD/MOE grip and include the maximum amount of tools possible. This was only possible by a completely modular assembly, avoiding the bulky pivots common to most multi-tools.

Hit up Soldier Systems for more coverage of Warrior Expo.

It contains the following components:
– M-Lok compatible tip
– Windage elevation sight tool
– Firing pin scraper
– Buffer tube wrench
– Cleaning cable pull handle
– 4mm wrench
– T10 torx
– #0 cross driver
– Bolt carrier & bolt scrapper
– 1/2?, 1/4?, 3/8?, and 3/4? wrenches

    Loving the minimalist design. MSRP is a bit much for what it's competing against, but we'll see where it goes.

    As much as I have bashed Gerber in the past, I have to give them a nod for introducing a tool that actually comes apart in your hands BY DESIGN for a change.
