Wheeler 89 Piece Professional Gunsmithing Screwdriver Set Review
Wheeler Gunsmithing Screwdriver Set 562194
Everyone has a standard screwdriver in the shop but when you start working on specialty things like cars, guns, and electronics you often need a special screwdriver. As someone who works on guns quite a bit I know the difference between a properly secured fastener and a stripped screw is having the correct screwdriver. The folks over at Wheeler Tools sent us their 89 Piece Professional Gunsmithing Screwdriver Set to review.
I’ve been using it on several projects this Winter including mounting a scope, mounting a red dot, and changing out some grips on my pistols just to name a few projects. This has replaced a make shift kit I had on the bench with an assortment of bits from over the years.
Screwdriver Set Features
Unlike other screwdriver suppliers, Wheeler’s engineers measured the screws on over one hundred modern and antique firearms to make sure that we offered bits for every situation. Whether you are working on a Browning®; Superposed, a Remington®; 700, a Smith & Wesson®; revolver or a Colt®; single action, you will find that there is a bit to fit every screw on your gun. The 89 piece set includes 15 ingenious”specialty bits”. These bits are great for installing scope bases, getting you out of a pinch by providing a small pin punch when you really need it and keeping once-in-a-while lifesaver tools at your fingertips.
Where To Buy
We all probably own more screwdrivers than any other tool. And those are great for 90% of the projects we do. However, when you start working on projects with special size fasteners it’s crucial to have the right size bits. The screwdriver handles are very comfortable and the bits fit tightly into the end of the screwdriver with no slop. All of the bits that I have used fit snugly and the wide range has fit every fastener I’ve needed to use on each gun. This is an excellent choice for anyone working on guns looking for a dedicated screwdriver set.
