I am looking for a source for front sight adjustments on a colt. In the Nam we used the end of an unexpended round. I am sure there must be somthing better out there. Arthritis in my hands also affects this task. Thanks

Brownells (www.brownells.com) will have what you need - item # 078-015-002. I have one and it is a lot easier than using the unexpended round.... Clay

I would suggest getting the long straight type of sight tool vs. the knob shaped kind. Also consider making one. In the Army M16A2 manual their is a section at the end on assembly and adjustment tools you can make (Section E2). I made a sight adjustment tool out of a thick coat hanger. Works well. The manual also shows how to make the straight type adjustment tool.
