    "New Pachmayr 1911 Tool Kit"

    I just ordered one of these the other day and it looks pretty slick. Even better, it actually looks like a "tool" as opposed to an alien space gizmo. Many multitools I've played with are cumbersome knucklebusters. The only downfall here seems to be that it has no bushing wrench... guess they didnt take us Baer people into mind when they made it.

    If Pachmayr's other screw drivers are any indication, this should be of good quality and durability. It boasts 6 different 1911 specific tools in a very compact package:

    5/32" Pin Punch

    5/32" Hex Drive

    3/32" Hex Drive

    .150" Small screwdriver

    .210" Medium screwdriver

    .325" Large screwdriver

    Nice post Ping Ping...and ditto on the tool. I've got one as well, and it works great. I like that it's not some sort of a folding tool that I can pinch my fingers with!
    Regards

    OK. I've used this and used it, now. The best thing since canned beer. There is nothing you can do to a 1911 that this thing wont tackle... other than cleaning. The quality is first rate; chromed shafts and hardened carbon tips. The lock-up could be a little tighter, but it's nothing to cry about.

    The punch is even beveled high enough to help you recenter that misbehaving barrel lug, while trying to reinsert the slide stop! It's perfect for firing pin and pin-stop removal, too!

    By far, the best 1911 multi-tool out there!

    100% Ping appoved!

    Looks like a winner for the range bag Ping. Do the bits store in the handle?
    "The 1911 was the design, given by God to us through John M. Browning, that represents the epitome of what a killing tool needs to be. It was true in 1911 and it's true now." - Col. Robert Coates commanding, U.S. Marine Corp Special Operations Command Detachment 1 (DET 1)

    Yup. All in the handle with an easy access ratchet selector. It takes up the same amount of room as a magazine. I REALLY like this tool. Only thing is, I dont think it would take much whacking with a mallet for pin removal... but then, I havent encountered a 1911 pin that required much muscle.
