    You asked for it!
    These are the tools I use most. The picks are brass, to keep the scratches down. I also use the brass punches and a plastic hammer for trigger groups. The allen wrench set is used along with T-handles. The set has very tiny wrenches that some airguns use. Really happy with the scope mount and level kit, It cuts time down and gives an even torque. Trying to get a wide o’rings selection in the bins as well. Of course I use a set of calipers for everything.

    Stainless steel dental picks with both sharp and blunt tips. These will help a lot when dealing with O-rings and cleaning those hard to reach crevices. 

    Get an allen key set with a holder. That way you know what size(s) is missing easily and can go look for it or replace it.

    @dirte – Ooohh! that is a nice set of allen wrenches! Those tiny ones can be difficult to find in large sets like that.  :)

    An unexpected but very useful tool. A simple soldering iron.

    If you have a screw or bolt you think may be set with loc-tite or a similar substance. Even if it may be seized or rusted in place a bit and could use a heat and cooling cycle or two this is perfect for it. You also don’t have to worry too much about damaging the stock as you will be applying heat to the hardware directly.

    Being a gun smith, I believe the best tool to have is a good set of hollow ground screwdrivers. Not tapered ones. I love Craftsman screwdrivers for working in the garage. But they do not belong anywhere around a gun. Think of how many times you have slipped and scratched your rifle or handgun installing scope rings or bases.

Moly works in small amounts. I would not put anything that will drip/migrate into the hammer area. This can cause erratic shot deviation. I use an o’ring lube in certain spots in a gun.

    I have the wheeler bit set with the inch pound handle that I like,use it a lot on my scopes mounting rings,16-18 inch pounds also the punch and hammer set are nice and the pic set, I have a folding metric and SAE along with the T-Handles from harbor freight and then I also have a lot of odd and end tools for my weapons that I’ve bought separate, before you know it the small tool box turns into a big tool box.

    This is the box I use in my home upstairs so I don’t have to go downstairs and get tools,when open I can use the top as a make shift table to rest my weapons on,I like it a lot, fold it up and set it in a corner or the closet.https://www.factoryauthorizedoutlet.com/dewalt-mobile-work-center?google=1&CAWELAID=1191793633&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=20078457731&CATCI=pla-351593567970&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwPXHsPO31gIVDJFpCh1hyQ12EAQYCiABEgJ66vD_BwE

    It does have a handle that you pull up in back to move then you collapse it to open it, I bought those clear small boxes with different size compartments for orings,screws,and other small items and set them in the bottom with my other little tool kits.
    I also have a small tool box that I take with me to the range with the basic hand tools and extra pellet tins.

    Great topic, Pat!
    My airgun collection is growing and like you, I need to invest in the proper tools.  
    Dirte, thanks for the links …  I spent some dough on Amazon tonight…. gun vise, allen keys, and leak detector.  I gotta log-off before I buy a scope mounting kit!

    I have the Umarex flex shaft cleaning kit with the 6 small driver bits that fit the flex-shaft handle. Flex shaft is junk, but the handle and bits are great. Besides all sizes of screwdrivers and what’s left of my two hex key sets that are missing? Also, a set of different kneedlenose pliers and wire cutters from Harbor Freight that come in handy. Need some metal seal pics though. Outers plastic ones are junk. Craftsman makes a set of four in nice Parkerised metal with handles. The two-ended toothbrush shown is handy too. As are some long cleaning pads (about 8″ or so) for getting into tight spots. I also found Equate acetaminophen bottles about 50ct size fit my Gun Butler just right.

Those really small picks that Harbor Freight sells work great also. For $3 you can afford to buy two sets and grind on one set to get the right profile. A few wood dowels also help seating some new o’rings.

    Yup. That’s the set. Square wooden handles. I still have my set from the smithing school some 30 years ago.
