    Anyone using the Magna Matic AKFST?

    I would like to hear your opinions on whether the AKFST or the larger AKFST GS (GunSmith model) is best to order?
    I mean, based on anyones experience with the smaller AKFST, would/could there ever really be a need for the larger GunSmith model?
    Could there ever be a front sight drum on an AK (aside from totally rusted ones) that the smaller AKFST tool couldn't handle???
    Thanks for any help here.

    drums that broke other tools were no problem for the AKFST, I see no need for the GS unless you used it all day, everyday

    I had the same thoughts. I opted for the less expensive AKFST and haven't regretted it so far.

    I stripped many chinese models, the tapco model eventually gave out but it had a good run.

    The AKFST is the best thing since sliced bread for a guy who owns or sights in a lot of soviet rifles. The small one shows no signs of wearing out, just get that one.
