Description Technical Specs Extended Information
The AKFST line of AK-47 front sight tools are the first AK front sight tool to be made to the levels of strength and durability the AK end user or manufacturer expects. No extra tools are required. The AKFST have a limited life-time warranty - if the tool breaks under normal use, send the tool back to Magna-Matic for a replacement (see www.magna-matic-defense.com for full warranty details, terms, and conditions.) The UNBREAKABLE AKFST is 400% stronger than the current generic “C-clamp” type tools. Now with the AKFST you’ll never have to re-buy a front sight tool due to breakage on a frozen AK sight. The AKFST also makes range adjustments even easier, don't let a frozen AK front sight force you to run back to your shop to make adjustments
The 4.5 inch long torque arm provides a greater accuracy in sight adjustment, because with a longer lever it requires less pressure to make a smaller motion. Which allows you to be more sensitive in your adjustment.
WINDAGE! The ultra-strong full-circle clamp provides 100% positive contact to the sight post. The heavy-duty full-circle clamp and over-sized push rod provides the strength to move the most stubborn frozen sight. Perfect alignment of the drum is easy by viewing the drum through the sight adjustment port of the AKFST.
ELEVATION! The precision machined tip of this adjustable T-handle wrench seats onto the sight post to give you a 100% positive hold on even the most frozen of sight posts. The long lever, which is able to be positioned for greater leverage makes adjustment simple and easy. Note: the T-handle rod can slide to any position to provide more leverage, all images are shown with max leverage.

Amazed January 27, 2014
Reviewer: Jeffrey Barton from Fort Dix, NJ United States  
I just received my AKFST tool today and I can say without a doubt I will never need another one for as long as I live. This thing is perfect, fits just right and solid. This will become a hand me down for many generations. I was also surprised at how fast I received it. I ordered it on Thursday and it got here on Monday and ordering here was the cheapest even with shipping.  If you have an AK then you absolutely have to have a AKFST, no other will do. I will be posting a review on youtube if you would like to see more. Being a Marine and shooting the M4 almost daily I am going to look into the carbon tool. It may make life easier and I may be able to get to bed sooner on deployment by not having to spend so much time cleaning my "baby" lol

It didn't break! September 3, 2013
Reviewer: James Kelly  
THANK YOU!  I just received my (blemished) front sight adjustment tool.  Trying to sight in my new rifle, I was 18" low!  My second point of despair was the snap of two front sight adjusting tools snapping.  I couldn't move the front sight with needle-nose pliers.  I had honestly given up and figured I would just have to remember my aiming point was half way up the front post!  LOL.

I ran across your website and took a chance, mainly because of your lifetime warranty on your tool. (I was certain your adjustment tool would snap).  Your adjustment tool did what a pair of needle-nose pliers couldn't.  I just got the tool in the mail and immediately pulled my rifle out.  I heard the pop of metal giving and felt the resistance, which was substantial, throughout the entire process of lowering my sight post.  Your adjustment tool made the difference!  You saved me a trip to the gunsmith to have the post drilled out and replaced!

I could not be happier!

Works great! December 10, 2012
Reviewer: David from California  
I had a few c-clamp tools break on a type 56 Chinese SKS that have been recently released as a C&R.  Could not get the sight to move at all.  This tool moved it the first time and works on my other russian sks just fine as well as the Romanian WASR ak47.

It works and doesn't break! February 25, 2012
Reviewer: brian smith-winsemius from hillsboro, OR United States  
I got this to adjust a stuck windage drum on a RPK after popping 2 cheap chicom C tools. The Magna-Matic broke loose the windage slide with no problems. Because it's a closed circle it also males better adjustments to windage. The C clamp tools spring open and then push erratically, the M-M tool just applies steady pressure to the windage slide.

I lent this to a friend that has busted 3 of the cleaning capsule combo elevation tools. The M-M broke the front sight loose and adjusted it without damage to the sight or the tool.

You can buy the cheap C clamp tools, and keep buying them as they break. Or you can get the Magna-Matic and be set for life.

AKFST-GS Front Sight Tool January 10, 2012
Reviewer: Brian D from Virginia  
Broke three AK sight tools and this was after it soaked for 24hrs in Kroil.  The AKFST-GS gave me the biggest grin when it turned with minimum force.  Windage tool wasn't compatible with Romanian Draco.

This tool will turn any frozen front sight.
