TAMPA, FLA. — The upcoming revision of the Multitasker Series 3 is all the pocket tool any AR shooter could need. The Series 2X was already the strongest multitool weíve seen, and the improvements made to the Series 3 only make it stronger and more useful.
The updated tool includes a new, smoother action plier head CNC machined from billet D2 tool steel, a wider, 3-inch D2 tool steel knife blade (with a proper liner lock), a new combination 3/8-inch and 1/2-inch wrench to work on LaRue mounts and scope rings, a removable pocket clip, 1/4-inch bit driver with 10 bits and a front sight post adjuster, radius-tipped carbon scraper, and a redesigned, stronger castle nut wrench with integral flat head screwdriver. The file and dental pick are gone, but the Otis-compatible threaded post is equipped with a 3/32-inch punch tool thatís ideal for working on Glock pistols.
Weíve only had the tool in hand for a few days, but we can say the tool gives up nothing to the Series 2X, and the updated liner lock on the larger blade is perfectly executed. We donít miss the sheath and are happy Multitasker Tools doesnít charge us for the case we never used. The clip is a welcome addition for some, but we always carry the tool in a covered pouch, so we are glad itís removable. Lastly, Multitasker says it has improved the smoothness of the plier head bearing over the Series 2X, but we canít really tell the difference. They are both about as smooth as a set of high-end linemanís pliers. Stay tuned for moreÖ
