Hot Gear: The Gun Tool You Don’t Want to Be Without

The icons and verbiage on the packaging of the Real Avid Gun Tool Pro-X multi-tool make a bold statement: “The Gun Tool Pro-X can be used to quickly and efficiently break down and repair rifles, ARs, shotguns and handguns in the field, using 30 multi-functional tools tucked into a compact frame.”

The Real Avid Gun Tool Pro-X multi tool works on rifles, shotguns, slug guns, pistols and other firearms.

Let’s take a look.

When I pulled the Pro-X out of the box and handled it for the first time I couldn’t help but think, “Swiss Army Knife.” After going through all it’s nifty accouterments I’m convinced it will handle most of those annoying minor gun problems encountered in the field.

The Pro-X has a high-quality look and feel — it’s weighty and fits the hand well. I really like the sleek profile and non-slip finish. All of the tools are thoughtfully positioned for easy access and use. There are too many features to go into detail here (30, for crying out loud!), but it’s safe to say that whether you’re a wing-shooter, rifleman, pistolero or weekend warrior, if you need to do a quick adjustment or minor repair to your firearm in the field the Pro-X probably has a tool for it.

One feature I particularly like is the removable magnetic LED light. It functions as a flashlight when seated in its home on the multi-tool. Or it can be removed and used for lighting up those deep, dark recesses in your firearms or locating items in your backpack in the dark.

Whether you wear it on your belt using the ballistic-nylon sheath or stash it in your backpack or truck, this is a compact toolbox you won’t want to be without. MSRP: $44.99
