Product Preview: NRA Tactical Micro Tools

posted on October 18, 2016

The NRA Tactical Micro Tools are compact, function-packed instruments that fit in the palm of a hand—and on a keychain, which means operators can fix unexpected glitches on the spot without leaving the range. Developed to meet the mission needs of specific shooters, the AR-15 tool ($19.95) can help adjust sights, disassemble and scrape carbon from the bolt carrier group, while the 1911 version ($9.95) includes a bushing wrench and rotating pin punch. Both models are constructed of strong, stainless steel.
