First Look: Birchwood Casey Gun Plumber Handgun Tool

posted on April 18, 2019

Getting your gun back into action when you’re out in the field or at the range just got a little easier with the introduction of the new Gun Plumber Folding Handgun Tool from Birchwood Casey. This handy, pocket-size multitool has all the utensils you need to keep your revolver, 1911 and/or striker-fired handgun humming along, no matter where you are. The Gun Plumber tool features an integral patch loop and separate internal threaded rod for quick and effective bore cleaning wherever needed, and those same rods also function as emergency squib rods for those times when you hear a “pop” instead of a “bang.”


  • Keeps revolver, 1911 and striker-fired handguns operating
  • Includes 1911-barrel bushing tool
  • Includes threaded rod for brushes, jags, and patch loop accessories
  • Compact to fit in your range bag or tool box
  • MSRP: $19.99

The Birchwood Casey Gun Plumber also features four handy hollow ground, flat screwdriver blades that will fit most popular pistol and revolver screws. For striker fired pistols, the Gun Plumber Handgun Tool has a pin pusher which can also double as a sight tool for quick adjustments in the field. For 1911 shooters, the Gun Plumber also includes a rugged,  non-marring 1911-barrel bushing wrench. For everything else that can go wrong on the range, the Gun Plumber also has a selection of hex and torx blades tightening grip screws, locking down scopes and everyday usage.
