Firearm-specific multitools bearing the Multitasker name range from the pliers-based Series 2 AR model to the fountain-pen-shaped Tube, but at 6 ounces and 7/8 x 7/8 x 4 1/2 inches (closed), the Ultralight offers the best features of both.
Built with black-oxide-finished 420 stainless and G10 composite, the Ultralight features a locking carbon scraper and a replaceable, dental-style pick on one side and a combination flat screwdriver/M4 stock castle nut spanner and 1/4-inch hex driver on the other. A separate polymer holder contains 3/16-, 9/64-, 1/8-, 7/64- and 3/32-inch hex bits, T15 and T10 Torx bits, and No. 1 Philips and 3/16 and 3/32-inch straight screwdriver bits.
Retailing for about $75, the Ultralight is equipped with a pocket clip and lanyard loop and comes with a ballistic nylon/MOLLE-compatible pouch.
