A good brass pin punch set is an indispensable part of any firearms tool kit.

The tiny little screws inside the action of a firearm can be difficult to reach. Trigger guards, magazine wells and other features of your gun can get in the way, making disassembly and repair a painful task.  The new Fix It Sticks Extended Action Bits Made with a ball end hex head to allow maximum access to screws.  Extended Action Bits are available in 3/16 inch for Remington 700, AICS and similar actions, 5/32 inch for Ruger 10/22 V-Block and similar actions, 1/8 inch  for KIDD, and T30 for numerous Precision Rifles (T30 is not a Ball End).

A small hammer can be indispensable for those firearms related tasks that require tapping and light hammer strikes when out in the field, but never seems to be on hand when it's really needed. Fix It Sticks solves this issue with the Brass Hammer Head, which is designed with a steel insert to work with magnetic drivers. The Brass Hammer Head is available now with an MSRP of $8.

Fix It Sticks now offers a 140 Inch-Pound Torque Limiter for fasteners that require substantial torque. The preset torque limiters also use ¼-inch bits and tighten to the user-specified in.-lbs. limit, at which point they spin freely. Fix It Sticks torque limiters will work with any ¼-inch bit driver. The 140 Inch Pound Torque Limiter has an MSRP of $45.
