    Circlip pliers which you can buy at most any auto parts store or Lowes etc. I keep a set in my reloading room just for this.

    Circlip pliers are not really made for tightening recoil lug screws.

    finally, i went to a tool shop ( Princesse auto ) who have a large inventory of pliers and found this one who fit perfectly to re screw the bolt. so the case is close.. hope it will help other who need the info.

    Adjustable pin wrench is what you need... available in a range of sizes, the later L579 crossbolts take a 2mm pin
