My rifle has A1 rear sight & A2 front sight post (similar to Canadian C7 rifle). I'd like one tool which can handle both adjustments. Does anybody know a source for one of these? Perhaps Canadian military surplus? (CANSURP? LOL). Thanks.

Well somebody makes it, because I have one. But unfortunately, I can't remember where I got it. If I can figure out where it came from, I'll get back to you...

I just did a quick google on "A1/A2 sight tool".

Looks like Bravocompany, Model1sales and Fulton Armory all carry them. Prices looked to average $10-$12.

Bravo Company, 3/4 of the way down the page...

Sarco Intl. carried them at one time. Might give them a shot. IIRC it was 8 bucks

LOL. Everything I own is for sale, but you wouldn't like the price.
You can get it cheaper from one of the above links.

Hey, at least I'm honest.

That's the wrong tool, man. That one is A1 on both ends. He wants a crossbreed.


I just checked my order history. I guess I didnt get it from there. I can't remember where I got it from

I have a couple, they came from Brownells. I have the A2 type, four prong for the front sight and it works on the A1 Rear sight.

I had the same question. Thanks guys!

Just buy an A2 front sight post tool, and replace that rear drum with a Rapidex knob (1/2 moa clicks).

You DO have an A2 rear aperture, don't you?

A1/A2 combo front sight tool from DPMS.

For my Flip-Rear (A1 style) I just use a .223 round to press the detent.
