QUANTICO MARINE BASE, Va. -- Gerber showed off its new Crew Served Weapons tool at Modern Day Marine 2013. The nifty new multi-tool is an offshoot of Gerber's eFECT tool for cleaning M16/M4 weapons.
The CSW tool has several scrapers designed to get into the nooks and crannies of the M249 and the M240 machine guns. It's scheduled to be released Oct. 1 and, according to Gerber officials, has already generated a lot of interest from the U.S. Army and Marine Corps. Gerber officials said they had not decided on a price yet but estimated it should retail for just under $100.
