The Gerber Short Stack weapons maintenance tool garnered a full double-page feature in the 'Cutting Edge' section of SWAT magazine's January issue. Author Eugene Nielsen gave the Short Stack a full review and trial, giving the reader a full rundown of the tool's capabilities and features. Nielsen is impressed with the Short Stack and gives the reader the feeling that their AR-15 isn't complete without this useful, lightweight tool, calling it a "no-brainer." The article concludes by highlighting the Short Stack's USA origin, and providing a link to Gerber's website (www.gerbergear.com).
Earlier in the magazine, the Gerber Dime makes an appearance in the EDC section alongside some other must-haves for everyday tactical carry.
