Multitasker Tools M:4: Making Rifle Upgrades Easier

Working on your gun, whether for repairs or upgrades, tends to require tools. Some tasks require a greater number of tools than others, and certain things need very specific tools, which is how you end up with piles of gun-related gear everywhere. If your gun toolbox is overflowing, Multitasker Tools has a product out to reduce it a little: the Multi-Tasker M:4, a multi-tool created for the M4 platform. (The M4 being, of course, the military’s name for their full-auto rifle, which has a design like that of the AR-15, although the AR-15 doesn’t have the awesome selector switch.)

One tool to rule them all? Not quite, but the Multitasker Tool M:4 can handle a variety of tasks on your M4 pattern rifle. (Photo credit: Multitasker Tools)

Multitasker Tools provided the following details regarding their M:4 tool:

The M:4 [patent number 11,092,405] is a 1-piece multi-tool for the M4 carbine designed and manufactured by MultiTasker® in conjunction with B5 Systems, makers of the SOPMOD and SOPMOD-Bravo buttstocks.

The M:4 is precision machined from solid barstock using wire-EDM/CNC and fits discreetly with no visible footprint inside a specially inletted buttpad made by B5. Easily accessible without tools simply by pressing the release tabs on the buttpad. Dot coded to indicate functions.

The individual tools that have been combined into the M:4 tool include:

  • 1/4 inch slotted screwdriver
  • Dual lug castlenut spanner wrench
  • 1/2 inch hex ring for scope rings
  • Bolt override malfunction clearance tool

With this multi-tool, users can take care of basic fixes and adjustments without having to dig through a pile of tools or leave the range to go home for tools. The M:4 fits neatly inside the buttpad of the B5 Systems stock, although of course you don’t have to have a B5 Systems stock to get the tool itself.
