There are many different multitools on the market, but how do you know which ones are the best for your needs? To help kickstart your research, check out this MultiTasker tactical tool review. In this blog post, we go into detail on the many features and uses of this popular option. More specifically, this will be an extensive MultiTasker Twist review. We’ll teach you everything you need to know about this useful multitool, so you can make an informed purchase.
What Is The MultiTasker Twist?
The MultiTasker Twist is a pen-shaped multitool designed to be used for weapon maintenance and optics or sight adjustments. It’s CNC-machined from T-6061 aluminum and its main body features two screw-off caps, which are sealed with O-rings to keep water out. It’s also Type III Mil-spec Anodized. Priced at around $50.00, this budget-friendly tool is the perfect addition to any gun kit, letting you work with weapons on the go without dragging around a bunch of tools.
We consider the Twist to be a cousin of the MultiTasker, but it’s a more compact version. Because it’s a smaller model, it doesn’t have all of the same features, but it’s still an impressive range tool. It can be used for everything from household tasks to changing clip adjustments on holsters. If you own any firearms, you’ll want to get yourself a MultiTasker Twist!
Why Everyone Needs A MultiTasker In Their Gun Kit
The Twist has many awesome features that make it useful for different situations. These include an Aimpoint turret adjuster on the rear cap, a pocket clip with a light-duty slotted screwdriver, a heavy-duty dental pick with a brass shank, a 3/32 pin punch, a radial carbon scraper, an M16A2 style FSP adjustment tool on a magnetic ¼" hex bit holder, and 10 ¼" hex bits with a carrier strip. The Multitasker Twist has all the tools you need to make adjustments or provide general maintenance for your weapons, so it’s the perfect compact multitool to keep in your gun kit.
A Detailed Look At Multitasker Twist Features
Let’s dive a little deeper into these features. First, we’ll look at the end cap. It has an adjustment tool for your Aimpoint red dot sights, should you have one. This is handy because instead of trying to keep up with the singular-use tool, you can carry the Twist and still have all that and much more. The pocket clip also serves as a slotted screwdriver for light work.
If you take the end cap off, it will reveal a female octagonal portion where you can insert any one of the eleven bits that come with the Twist. The handle is “fluted” to create an extra grip for when you’re having to torque something a bit. This isn’t meant for heavy-duty jobs, but it’ll work for anything you might need to do on the range. The lower half of the handle separates as well, so if you twist something hard, the bottom portion will start to unscrew. That could be a potential issue, but since this tool isn’t really meant for tougher jobs, you shouldn’t have any problems.
The bits included with the Twist are as follows: 3/16" Slotted, 3/32" Slotted, No. 1 Phillips, T15 Torx, T10 Torz, 3/16" Hex, 9/64" Hex, 1/8" Hex, 7/64" Hex, and 3/32" Hex.
If you take off the lower half of the handle, you’ll reveal three extensions that can easily be screwed into the end of the lower half for use. You have a punch tool, a dental-tool style scraper, and a carbon scraper that’s handy for cleaning an AR-style bolt. Just screw the desired tool into the end, put the tool back together, and get to work. The whole process is super simple!
Why The MultiTasker Twist Should Be Considered An EDC Item
The best thing about the Twist is its size. It’s compact enough to fit in your pocket, even with the included bits, so it’s convenient to have on you at the range, which ensures it’s handy for anything from quick fixes to zeroing adjustments. It has a front sight tool for an AR-15 platform, and the cap can adjust your Aimpoint micro-optic, but it also has screwdriver bits if that’s what your optic takes. Its ability to be stored easily make the Twist a perfect everyday carry item!
As you can see through this review, there are a lot of handy features packed into this compact tool. The Twist is definitely something you’ll want more than one of, so we recommend just going ahead and picking up two! They can be found on Tactical Distributor’s website at $49.95 in black, $54.95 for tan, or $64.95 for the limited edition multicam version.
