Sight adjustment tool broke
 
I just spent $13 on the only sight tool availabe locally and I tried to turn the front sight - and the sight is so tight that it twisted off the wings of the tool when I tried to turn to front sight.

So how do I make these sight adjustments - other than this tool -

Assuming you did nothing wrong, that front sight's

awful tight. Can you see rust?

No rust - I sprayed it with break free before I tried to turn it

Try a hammer and drift punch if you have one if not a hammer and screwdriver could work.

A spent .223 casing can be notched into a DIY sight adjusting tool...
