Wheeler Engineering – 72 Piece Professional Gunsmithing Screwdriver Set
Screwdrivers are the most important and most-used gunsmithing tools.
Wheeler’s Deluxe Gunsmithing Screwdriver Set is the kit that belongs on every gunsmithing bench – the well thought-out bit selection will put an end to burred, busted up screw slots on any gun that comes your way. The bits make up the heart of any screwdriver set, and Wheeler’s are the finest available. They’re made from S2 tool steel and hardened to 56-58 Rockwell “C.” 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. Keep your gun looking and operating as good as new!
The 54 Hollow-ground flat bits range in size from .120″x.020″ to .360″x.070″, and includes doubles in the thinnest sizes.
The set also includes a complete selection of Phillips, Allen, and Torx bits to cover scope rings, bases, recoil pads, and the like. The difference in the “basic set” and the “professional set” lies in the 15 ingenious “specialty bits” that are included in the “professional” set.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.
The set come with two handles made from comfortable overmolded plastic. The first is a regular size handle that’s good for most jobs, and the second is a slimmer, shorter “Close Quarters” handle that is good for finesse work with smaller bits.
The Screwdriver sets also come in a durable custom box that’s ready for the bench or your range kit.

Tips for use:
1) Always select the proper bit. Choose the largest bit that fits all the way into the fastener and provides maximum surface area contact.
2) Thoroughly clean fastener to ensure bits will fully insert, do this before selecting the correct size bit.
3) Always wear safety glasses when applying pressure to a stuck fastener. Bits and fasteners can break projecting fragments.
4) Replace damaged or deformed bits.
