One of the biggest frustrations for gun owners is experiencing technical issues on the range. Whether it's a loose scope ring or a mounting screw, the Space Saver Screwdriver Set from Wheeler Engineering, a division of Battenfeld Technologies, can be ready to solve any issue, due to its compact, packable size.

The screwdriver kit comes in a durable plastic storage case that measures only 8.25 inches long, 2.75 inches high and 1.75 inches deep, meaning that it can be stored in a car or a range bag with ease, providing gun owners with the most common tools and bits necessary to do quick repairs to their firearms in the field or at the range.

The kit includes 26 different bits that are specifically chosen to meet most of the gunsmithing needs faced by any individual. The kit includes standard and Phillips heads, as well as hex and torx bits. Also included is a special 2-inch long No. 2 Phillips head that is designed particularly for installing recoil pads. The kit also includes a hex-to-square conversion piece that enables owners to use 0.25-inch sockets. The included handle features a hex insert that will accept a wide variety of other bits, if needed.

Each bit has its own specially molded slot inside the hard case, which features a snap-shut lid that keeps contents secure and organized. The bits are constructed from high-quality hardened S2 tool steel, and the standard screwdriver bits feature hollow-ground flats.

For more involved projects, Wheeler Engineering also offers 43-piece, 72-piece and 89-piece Professional Gunsmithing Screwdriver sets. In the development of these kits, Wheeler tested the screws and fasteners from more than 100 different modern and antique guns to ensure that the kits contained the most necessary bits for both hobbyists and professionals.

The benefit of using Wheeler bits is the fact that the company ensures the bits will fit screw slots perfectly, avoiding damage and marring that could not only hurt the value of firearms but also make for costly repairs down the road. One sure place where marring and damage could easily happen is during a quick fix on the range. Avoid the trouble and make sure you're covered with the Wheeler Space Saver Screwdriver set.

The suggested retail price on the screwdriver set is $14.99.
