They [Magpul Customer Service] lied. Might be true for Gen 2 sights, but not Gen 1.
Figured out a technique that is adequate. Using two precision screwdrivers: depress the catch with one and rotate the post with the other. Works fine, but requires two hands.
Sorry you feel we misled you. Both the Gen 1 and current Gen 2 MBUS use a standard A2 front sight post that can be found on any M16/M4. The Gen 1's was held in place via friction while the Gen 2 uses a detent similar in concept to a factory sight. We provide a basic tool for adjustment of the Gen 2 as a convenience but in no way is it required for our sight as an A2 front sight adjustment tool can be obtained from any number of retailers.
Our included tool is normally not available for sale, but we can sell you a replacement for your lost one if you'd like for a minimal charge plus shipping costs.
