An Overview of Magna-Matic Defense

Magna-Matic Defense is primarily notable for producing gunsmithing tools.. When I stopped by their table at the 2014 SHOT show, they had a neat lineup of tools.

CRT-15 / CRT-25 / CRT-14 (Carbon Removal Tool)

I didn't take pictures of these at SHOT, because I've already taken a full set on the CRT-15 and will be uploading them with my review later on. The CRT-25 is for SR-25 / AR-10 rifles, and the CRT-14 is designed for the needs of the M-14 platform. I consider the CRT-15 an indispensable tool for my range bag.

PSDB1 (Precision Steel Dead Blow Hammer)

What's notable about this hammer is that the tips are interchangeable, and the pommel of the hammer is threaded with the same pattern as the ends. This picture includes the packaging / manual, so that you can read it for yourself.

This is the hammer itself.

This is the hammer with one of the ends unscrewed, so that you can see the steel deadblow weight. The hammer is designed so that you can move the weight into the base if you want the head of the hammer to be lighter.

AKFST-GS (new revision)

I own the earlier edition of this tool, which is considerably beefier than the standard "clamp type" AK front sight tools. Mine has successfully adjusted front sight posts which have snapped Tapco brand front sight tools. The new, revised edition is designed to be able to work with a wider variety of front sights, particularly Krinkovs. And the new nylon teeth are designed to avoid marring the sight as adjustments are being made. Given that I own the previous version of this tool, I may add pictures of it later.

The new tool, as well as the box it comes in.

A closer detail shot of the tool itself. Note the nylon teeth down below (set screws, actually, adjustable for height).

A different angle shot of the tool.

Unnamed Screwdriver

This is a screwdriver they built more as a proof of concept than anything else. I don't see a model number for it on the website, but it uses the same handle as the PSDB1 hammer.
