    Gunsmithing screwdriver bits

    Does anyone know how to get replacement bits for Wheeler gunsmithing screwdrivers?

    Apparently Midway are supposed to have them, but they will not export outside continental US, as will Wheeler..!

    Getting bits from wheeler is a royal pain in the buttocks, you have to call them and most of the time they don't have stock. I buy from Brownells most of the time.

    It's not a wheeler set, but I got this set
    https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1020941337
    couple years ago on sale for $60. I use them with my wheeler torque driver. I have found a very tight, perfect bit for every milsurp I have. The small screwdriver doubles as a T handle for the big driver. With a perfect fitting bit the extra leverage twisted out otherwise frozen buttplate screws.
    EDIT: In the UKicon https://www.opticswarehouse.co.uk/re...crewdriver-kit. A bit more expensive, but these are soooo well worth it.
