Can somebody reccomend a good place to buy an a-2 front post sight tool?

I checked Bushmaster and the like, but shipping makes it not worth the part.

Preferably they would also sell standard front posts.

A local gun show perhaps. I would just order some more stuff from bushmaster or Brownells like a spare parts kit from Yellow Tavern to make the shipping worth it.

Spare parts sounds like a good idea. Would you reccomend one of their pre-packaged spare parts kits like a field repair kit? Or would it be better to choose my own parts?

adco makes a front sight tool along with a lot of other nice tools and while your at it there are a bunch of cool stuff.

shipping isnt bad either

I bought mine from here:


Then I modified it by drilling a 1/4" hole and machining a little pointed piece out of delrin to use as a take down tool.

I use the "intended" tool for the FS: a 5.56 round. $6.95 for a better application won't break the bank or anything, but I can think of a better way to spend it myself. To each his own though.

Brownells carries one too. It's listed under AR-15 Sight Wrench.

You probably already have one:

I've used bullets, and I think they are a pain. I managed to scratch up the post and it was tricky to do on brand new guns with super stiff springs.

Thanks for the info on Steve from Oly, I will have relatives pick up a sight tool at the next gun show hopefully.

thanks for the feedback
