I am looking for a set of gunsmithing screw drivers like Wheeler Engineering or
others. I can't decide from reviews which one is best. I have many guns from surplus to 10-22. Any thoughts and advice would be appreciated, likes and dislikes. Thanks

Wheeler is made in China and Brownells Magna-Tip screwdrivers are made in the USA. I have the Magna-Tip set and all is good. Its one reason the Wheeler set is inexpensive when compared to the Magna-Tip set/sets

Choosing between Wheeler or Brownells - Brownells by a mile. Be sure to get at least one of the law Enforcement handles ( they're shorter) if you buy a set. Good tools cost more but perform better and last much longer.

Thank you very much for your advice. I will go with the more expensive ones you get what you pay for.

with the Brownell's set you have a lifetime warranty. I had a bit break and emailed the part # this past Monday and yesterday(Thurs) a replacement rolled in. what great customer service. as an aside I have the wheeler set and constantly break bits and those are replaced by purchasing not by warranty. the Brownell's bit is also harder.
