I am reworking my battle belt setup and looking to upgrade my range multi tool. I am currently running a Gerber Suspension, and would like a more AR specific tool. My battle belt is for shooting 2gun and in a local practice rifle program, so I don't need an EOD tool as I am not going to war. It is a toss up between the Multitasker series 3, Leatherman Mut, and Gerber 600 sight tool.

I am looking for any first hand experience with listed tools thanks in advance.

My vote goes to the MUT, I own a wave which is a great tool and have used a buddys MUT, after using it I wish I went with the MUT honestly.

Multitasker hands down, IMO. I've had a MUT and a number of gerbers and for an AR specific (and most other instances) tool you can't get any better than the Multitasker. I have a 2x, but the series 3 is even better.

Currently running a MUT and happy with it.  It's fixed all sorts of AR issues and dozens of different handgun makes and model minor issues.  Never even handled a multitasker though so I can't run ya a comparison.


Do the right thing, even when no one is looking.

I also own a multitasker and highly recommend it to everyone

I've been looking at the multitasker. But I gotta question the castle nut wrench.

Has anyone, or do you think you would, actually use this? Seems to me that an issue with the castle nut is more than likely a take it home and fix problem. Or better yet, has anyone actually needed to tighten or remove one in the field? I've never had one come loose. Ever. Anywhere.

So I'm wondering if it's a wasted space/weight tool on there that one might be better off without. Or maybe a more usable tool in it's place.

ETA: Also, how do you know the inch pounds you're applying? Or would you care in the field? I'm guessing that if it was my one rifle, in the feild, and I needed to tighten it, I'd not care about torque ratings. Continue the fight and worry later. But since I've never dealt with it, I don't know

Thank you for the info. It is providing me with some food for thought. I will keep researching and let everyone know which route I decide to go.

I'm with you on that one Raskin, as much as I like them it's hard to stomach the additional cost for a job specific tool.

Granted, it may be the nicest looking one to boot.

Yeah it is really a shooting specific tool, but it is a great tool for the job. The driver bits and needle nose pliers should get one through most tasks, the Esse 4 on the battle belt fills the roll of a knife rather well. Lol
