So this Hammerli 215 followed me home......

I'm ok on most stuff as I have owned an old international for a lot of years.  This thing is absolutely pristine and may even be unfired.  It didn't have anything els with it other than a nice set of large unmolested Morini grips.  I would like a Combi tool for it but of course I might as well want a passenger pigeon .  I did find an extra magazine and a few spare parts at Red Feather though.  What sort of trouble would I get into if I were to get a proper tracing or scaled scan of  someone's tool and send it to a laser cutting service like SendCutSend ?  I would think they might be able to do a good job and as long as I did not charge anyone for it Walther might not take me to court.  The screw driver blades could be filed down and the thing heat treated.  I need a project.

Could somebody scan one and do a little measuring for me ?  I'd like to try to have a batch made up.

I have a friend here in Prescott who is looking for a combi tool  We were hoping somebody local would be willing to
make one or more of these tools so I took a photo of mine along with some measurements.  I hope this helps.
If you are able to make some, please let me know so I may purchase one.

Brillant!  I can never spit out the name of the town of Prescott!  I have a very dear friend that lives there.  The late, great Don Nygord lived there too.  Thank you so much for the drawing!!   I have the services of a captive and some what trained mechanical design engineer (My son :-) BS, MS. Texas A&MUniversity)  and Now lead drive system designer for Tesla.  I will get it drawn up in auto cad.  If I can get them done there will be no charge.  It will give me a project to keep me off the streets and out of the bars!

Not noted and difficult to see in the image, is that the bottom of the slot in #4 of the picture is tapered to a sharper edge.  This slot is used for changing the rear sight blade, by pressing it from right to left and lifting it out of the sight.  The blade has a serrated right end for the tool to grasp.

Ed,

Outside of the function for changing the sight blades, would a set of quality screwdrivers serve the same functions?

I've never used #4 on that tool to change the rear sight, only the other three sides to remove/install screws.  So,
I suspect propely ground screwdrivers would work.

Properly fit screwdrivers would be easier to use, too.  In addition, the second stage screwdriver could be shaped as a spanner, so the inner (Allen) adjustment could be left alone.  I believe the multi-tool was just a handy single device to catch the slot type adjustments and the rear sight screw and blade.  Note that the rear sight screwdriver should have a small handle, so you don't over-torque it.  I use the sight adjustment screwdriver from S&W, myself.

Appreciate the insight. I like the idea of the multi tool, just seems much more complex to search out/make one when quality screwdrivers are in the tool box.

The Hammerli tool I made from an old screwdriver for trigger adjustment without disturbing the inner set screw as Ed described. 

The reduced shank is to allow adjustment without slide removal.
