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.

Cool !   :salute:   Where did you find a Gerber MP600 SS CC plier head ?   Or did you cheat ?   ;)   :pok:

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:

One big item taken off my wishlist!!

The military version in pretty much new condition with just one ss needle nose. The Ebay seller probably not very sure what he's selling.. Slapped it right off his shelf!  :D :D :D

The Military version is the one to have if anyone is looking into 650s. :)

The split locating clips for the plier heads inside the Civilian handles (no springs) are very prone to breaking, so be careful when removing heads.

I just posted these pictures on another thread inquiring as to just what I had.After reading the answers I did some research and found this thread. Hope no one minds me posting on it as it is an old thread.
Bought this at a local flea market today from a friend who looks for knives for me.I'm more of a knife collector than a multi-tool person but have quite a few anyway."Anything with an edge";that is my motto.It only came with the blunt nose and regular needle nose.I don't think I'll be looking for any other heads after seeing some of the prices for them.
I won't say what I paid for it because it might sound like I was bragging.

Congrats on finding one of the rarer Gerbers out there, Ray!  :like:

Glad you didn't have to pay the crazy eBay prices! I got lucky and got mine for about half of eBay normal prices, but it was still around $80.  :facepalm:

I just noticed that the cap crimper you have is black. Oddly enough, the one that came with the military kit isn't. Curious.  :think:

That is a "Cable Cutter" head, designed for cutting copper wires (anything harder will damage the cutting head).
