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 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 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 has a limited life-time warranty - if the tool breaks under normal use, send the tool back to Magna-Matic (or email us an image of the failure) for a replacement.

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.

5 of 5 Taming the Beast!!! October 18, 2017
Reviewer: CDR Matt from North Haven, CT United States  
I work as a Gun Range "Range Safety Officer" here in CT.  In the last year (since buying this tool through Amazon), I am the go-to guy for AK and SKS sight adjustment.  When folks break their cheap, foreign-made tool trying to unfreeze their sight, I break out the AKFST.  

This weekend I had the ultimate challenge in a Norinco AK47 sight that even a gunsmith couldn't get to move.  The AKFST, in conjunction with a short length of black-iron pipe on the handle for additional leverage resulted in success.  I recommend it to everyone with an SKS or AK-type rifle.  Given my frequent use of the tool, I am going to buy the Gunsmith version next!!!

5 of 5 Incredible October 28, 2016
Reviewer: Paul J from Sacramento, CA United States  
Well, I bought my rifle almost 20 years ago and never could get my sights into adjustment and I despaired of ever doing so.  Thankfully, I saw an advertisement for this tool and thought I would give it a try.  I am an extremely happy customer.  After trying heat and various solvents and anything else I could think of over the years, this tool worked after the first try.  I installed the tool, started turning the handle and voila, the front sight started to move immediately.  Needless to say, I was shocked.  In my opinion, this is a must-have tool for anyone with an AK.  Thanks for a quality, Made in America product! Bravo!!!!

5 of 5 Rock Solid! July 20, 2015
Reviewer: David from Alabama from Trinity, AL United States  
After breaking 3 off-brand sight adjustment tools on a frozen front sight, I saw the AKFST at MidwayUSA.  The way the tool completely encloses the front sight post and surrounds the front sight riser is excellent.  With very little effort, the AKFST loosened both the vertical and horizontal adjustment.  This is a quality tool that does exactly what the manufacturer states. Don't waste your time on anything else!

5 of 5 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

5 of 5 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!
