Wrench

In addition to a screwdriver set, you’ll also want to get a wrench. The Wheeler 30 Piece Hex and Torx Wrench set has all the hex and torx heads you’ll need. When tightening screws, you will want to be careful. You don’t want to overtighten screws in your gun, but you also don’t want to leave any screws loose. Remember to always check out the manufacturer’s guide for the firearm you’re working on; it will include exact specifications on how tight your screws should be. If you’re worried about overtightening a screw, check out an adjustable, interchangeable-bit wrench like the Wheeler F.A.T. Wrench that allows you to adjust screws to exact torque measurements each and every time, whether you’re mounting a scope or assembling a rifle. The F.A.T. wrench works with your screwdriver bits, too.

Brass Hammer and Punches

When repairing or assembling a firearm you’ll run into plenty of small roll pins that you’ll have to carefully put back into place. You’ll have to make sure you’re using the right punch size for each pin, so it’s important to have a set of punches with varying sizes. The Wheeler Hammer and Punch Set comes with 8 different sized punches as well as a hammer to push the pins out. Don’t worry; the punches won’t damage your gun since they are made of brass, a material softer than steel. The hammer has brass on one side and nylon on the other side, so you won’t have to worry about damage with that tool either.

Having good quality fundamental tools on your bench is the best way to get started in the world of gunsmithing. Once you have the tools, read up on the firearms you intend to build and work on. Depending on what type of guns you want to spend the most time working with, there are even more awesome gadgets and tools you can grab to make the task even easier. If you want to work mostly on ARs, you might want to invest in a Wheeler AR Armorer’s Bench Block to keep your AR parts secure while installing new pins, detents, or springs. Looking to shoot long range rifles? Check out some scope mounting kids and tools. There are a ton of different specialized tools out there for the special project you have planned… but before you dive in, make sure you have the basics!
