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 for more info.

    Neat, but the major issue is bit storage. This might be smaller, but once you factor in bit storage it is going to use nearly as much space as the Multitasker.

    One tool I suggest is the Brownell's Designated Driver. I keep the four bits I use the most in it, and it is a small package.

    Now if only someone made an Aimpoint Micro bit.

    The TWIST weighs less than 2 ounces with its primary loadout - and has the Aimpoint Micro adjuster
