officers at Real Avid have made a habit of identifying problems and
designing solutions that work. That is the case with the Gun Tool
AMP units. Their Pistol and 1911 multi-tools are literally
“must-have” tools for any shooter who ventures into
However, the most amazing AMP in this family is the AR15 unit. Any
shooter who uses an AR-platform rifle is aware of the problems which
can occur during their use. As good as the AR rifles are, they can be
problematic with repeated use. As such, they sometimes require a bit
more than routine maintenance. And, if you do not have the proper
tools with you at the range or on a hunting
trip……. you are done.
that in mind, the folks at Real Avid designed the AMP AR15
multi-tool. We will say, here and now, if you have an AR, you
definitely need to pick up one of these units. They possess in a
single unit, every possible/required tool necessary for field
maintenance of the AR15. As with the Pistol and 1911 AMPs, the AR15
tool consists of two parts. The first part is the multi-tool itself.
The individual tools are as follows:
2.6” Tanto blade
Titanium and Black Oxide
Firing pin retaining pin
12 Bolt carrier group
scrapers for carbon removal from BCG surfaces
Firing pin scraper
Stainless steel tools are
easy to access and lock into place
second part of the AMP AR15 tool is the holster. The holster with its
Molle compatible belt clip stores the magnetic bits, a full array of
common AR15 related bits and implements and a fold-out magnetic
driver to make in the field adjustments quick and easy.
following bits are included:
A2 Front sight adjuster
numbers on the holster illustration indicate:
Quick Release lever to deploy the AMP multi-tool
#2 the storage
areas for the magnetic bits
#3 Fold Out Bit Driver.
case you are wondering how the multi-tool and holster go together,
the illustration below “says it all”. The
multi-tool slides right
into the holster and locks firmly in place.

of the tools in the multi-tool are stainless steel and lock firmly in
place when deployed or when not in use. If you get the idea that the
folks at Real Avid thought of everything when they designed this
unit, you would be right. We cannot think of anything else that they
should/would want to add on for field maintenance on a hunting trip
or at the range.
you have an AR-15 platform, the AMP AR15 should be on your
have” list . You will find that the MSRP of $69.99 is a
will save a lot of headaches in the field.
