NEW: Wheeler Pro Series Gunsmithing Tools

Some time ago, I attended a Wheeler Tool rebranding in Moab, Utah. The toolset I brought home with me has since been my most frequently used tool set and the one everyone at the Rock Chuck Olympics grabbed to mount and swap scopes.

Wheeler’s Professional Gunsmithing tool sets neatly contain everything you need!

About Wheeler’s Pro Series Gunsmithing Tools 

Wheeler’s new professional series combines several kits. They offer the Spacesaver Set, Hex/Torx Set,wheel Gunsmithing Set and F.A.T. Wrench set

All the sets come in updated cases with articulating hinges. All the tools are also set in a subtler copper/gray color scheme rather than the old bright yellow.

The lid of each kit specifies the location for each bit, making them easy to find and keep organized. Also, the bits stay intact but don’t need to be pried out!

Scope Install

We just unboxed an Athlon Cronus ATS Thermal to mount on my 22GT build for some night hunting! It came with Athlon rings requiring 65 inch-pounds on the base and 18-20 inch-pounds on the ring caps. Both required a T15 Torx, which fit nicely into the magnetic F.A.T. Wrench.

I lightly set the rings, pushing them forward onto the Picatinny, and torqued down the ring bases. I then removed the ring caps, set the scope in place, and began the leveling process using a Wheeler bubble level and a parallel.

When I was happy, I secured the ring caps, screwing them down in a criss-cross fashion while ensuring gaps between the rings were approximately equal. 

Conclusion

It’s never fun to have to search for a bit. Wheeler’s new Professional Gunsmithing Tool Sets are well thought out with a variety of bits for every job. Watch for these upgraded tool sets in upcoming videos!
