Warrior Expo – Gerber Short Stack

Friday, July 10th, 2015

This is the Short Stack. It’s a complete AR-15 armorer’s tool in an extremely compact package. In fact, at the booth it was displayed as fitting inside Magpul MOE and MIAD grips. Rather than unfold in a traditional manner, the tool is held together with a rubber stop as well as magnetically, and each component can be individually separated.

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
