A2 style iron sight adjustment help.
 
Where would I be able to buy a wrench to adjust a traditional M16A2 style sight?

A nail or a smashed shell casing will work as well as long as you don't mind some minor scaring of the FSP.

Thanks. I think I will go with the tool. I have tried to do it with a bullet... I think its worth the $5-10 for the tool IMHO.

Seems to me that I remember using the point of a fmj bullet in basic training to make adjustments on the front sight. The tool is well worth the $4 to $6 that they cost though. Just remembering where you put it is the only problem you'll have.

Here's the one you need, it has a hole in it and you can wear it on a string around your neck with your old P38. :D
