Streamlight TL-Racker - Spanner Tool NOT Included!

Post by CelloMan » Sun Aug 02, 2020 12:09 am

Hello - Well, after reading several reviews of flashlights and watching a few YouTube videos about installing them, I got the Streamlight TL-Racker.
Somewhere along the way I didn't notice that it does not come with a spanner tool. So, is there something I can use as an alternative, or do I have to buy the tool? Since this is my first firearm, I don't have a whole lot of gunsmith tools (and I'm not in a hurry to have a full set!).

Thanks

It's a light build into the forend, so he needs a forend tool.

Instructions say the tool isn't supplied. That sucks.

I've only used a cheap tool, which I got somewheres. It's just a stamped flat bar. Works fine for me. Brownells & MidwayUSA have much nicer gunsmith tools but they run $25-$30 and you don't need one of those.

Sorry I don't have any work around suggestions.

I ordered this one from Amazon: https://amzn.to/3fv8Pgd
There were less expensive options, but didn't have good reviews.
I'll probably never need it again. Who knows...?

I’m sure I’m to late on this, u can use long nose pliers will work. Other wise you can get the tool for $5.00 from this seller. https://www.mountsplus.com/aim-sports-s ... -tool.html
