I need two more, one day i will get them too :tu:

You are definitely off to a good start.  :tu:

The standard SS needle nose pliers are usually not super difficult to find (most MP650's came with them, and they were also sold as a separate accessory: part # 48273).  But of course some sellers put a high price on them.

The SS needle nose pliers with cap crimper are much harder to find - AFAIK they were only ever sold as part of the large military MP650 kit in the large sheath,

Yes, I think the standard pliers are not the biggest problem. The cap crimper version should (like you said before) be harder to find. I like the packaging and the style of the older Gerber stuff...  :cheers:

Count me in as a MP650 owner. :woohoo:

Neat tool, but now see why they are rare. A Gerber MP model with non-retractable pliers. :ahhh

Yep, interesting and promising concept, but the final execution was a tool with a lot of unused space in the handles.

The coating took forever to get off. And it ended up looking more polished than it should. :facepalm:
Went through several wire wheels on the dremel as well. :ahhh
So, in short, I cheated. :rofl:
