Whether performing basic maintenance or an extensive modification, there is a bit of kit and a few tools every gun guy needs. Brownells, in typical fashion, has made things easy for aspiring armorers by assembling said tools into one affordable and eminently useful collection. The company’s significant gunsmithing expertise is evident in both the quality and selection of tools provided, and the choices reflect the kit’s intended role of general field maintenance and repair. Included are two quick-change screwdrivers—Magna-Tip and miniature—with, combined, 35 commonly used slotted, Phillips, hex and Torx bits; an extra-long flathead screwdriver for buttstocks and pistol grips; assorted steel punches and non-marring nylon drift punches; a nylon/brass hammer; a steel packing hook; a smooth-cut file and India stone for metalwork; and a 6”chain-nose pliers.

Other cleaning and maintenance accessories are also provided, including a mil-spec cleaning brush, a small nylon bench block and a pistol-size gun mat. For convenience and organization, the Basic Field Tool Kit comes packaged in a durable Cordura-nylon case with specially designed pouches and pockets. Whether a gunsmith on the go, or a novice armorer assembling the essential tools of the trade, Brownells Basic Field Tool Kit represents a sound investment. Price: $213.
