Product Overview

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.

    BUY IT!, I had an sks front sight that couldnt be moved with a 6" C clamp and sockets, and it laughed at my attempts with a punch and heavy hammer blows. I knew about the typical garbage clamp style adjusters from across the pond, and almost tried one despite my own common sense. But Time and minimizing frustration are important, and I enjoy owning quality tools, so rather than getting 15 or twenty bucks wrapped up in a poorly made piece of pot metal that would only disappoint me and enrichen some little conman in a country that starts with "C", I followed the forums on the net and ordered what is unquestionably the finest most robust and well thought out front sight tool ever devised! And surprise surprise that wasn't enough, nooo! The shipping was faster than a bad rumor in a small town, the service was excellent, and more importantly, the thing worked effortlessly! It allowed me to smoothly control the drift of the sight in precise small increments. My only misgiving was that the task was completed too soon..... It was with such satisfaction that I used the tool that I wished for more rifle sights to rectify! So what, you pay a little extra, remember the last time you ponied up and spent a few extra dollars to buy a tool that truly excelled past the rest in quality and performance? so much so that you'd be proud to hand it down to the generations to come? The object of such substance that you take it out now and then only to look at it? That the difference in price was long forgotten and only the value and utility are thought of now? well thats what you'll be getting with the AKFST front sight tool by Magna-Matic...Just BUY IT ALREADY!

    After having my original/traditional horseshoe-shaped front sight tool bend to the point of uselessness, I had to find a better solution after a day at the range with my latest AK in need of some tweaking. At first I thought $35 was a bit expensive for what it's job is and I sat on it for a week looking for a better cheaper solution, which, I found a number of cheaper options but none that appeared to be better than the crappy bent one I already had, so I placed my order and the rest is history. This thing is built like a tank and with precision! My AK front sight is now an obedient and very compliant little thing. As with anything - and especially a tool, you get what you pay for. Stop looking around for something cheaper and better - you simply can't find both! If you need this, buy it right this minute! I guarantee you'll feel exactly as I do about it the second it's in your hand. Cheers.

    Don’t make the same mistake I did

    Posted by Connor on 29th Sep 2020

    Don’t make the same mistake I did. I originally bought one of those U shaped tools for my AK but after about 2x uses it bent and broke. This stainless steel front sight tool saved me the hassle and works AMAZINGLY. Rock hard and sturdy. This thing will not bend, dent, morph or break... it’s unstoppable. 5 stars.

    Best AK/SKS sight tool hands down.

    Posted by Alex on 3rd Sep 2020

    It's doesn't get better than this for a sight tool. Heavy, solid and well built. I've broken other cheaper sight tools on stubborn front sights but this tool would be impossible to break and made adjusting sights a breeze. Don't bother with any other sight tool it's the last one you'll ever need.
