Should go good with someone's collection of hundred dollar metal tubes.


Or, as a good friend of mine calls them: "door stops". This because he has lots of Purge tubes, in their protective case, as door stops in his old, unlevel home.

They lose value quickly for resale in the secondary market, and that's if you can find a buyer...

I'll keep my oldies, but there wont be any new ones added. The last I bought (at 95.00) was the sidefire Suicide mod in brass....Basically a smaller Purge Slampiece....for 350.00 cheaper.

What does he mean when he says words?

Imo you only need 4 tools
1. Screwdriver kit. Bought my kit a home depot with all different pieces for 10$. Unscrews every possible screw of any mod also.
2. Snips. I found a good small sized one at hobby lobby for 6$
3. Scissors. I use surgical siccors from my wife. Price unknown
4. Coil rod. 1.5$ here if i remember correctly. With diameter from 1.5 -4.
That's all i ever used.
We can't agree on everything.

I have tweezers around, but often I just use my coil rod to poke down cotton and such....never really combed out, or thinned cotton in rdas, but sometimes for billet rbas or small rtas....but I use chunk cotton, not muji. Muji I don't see ever needing thinning.

It might be great tools in this kit, but I'd bet they made this in very limited quantities....too expensive for most to take the chance on this.

It's all about the Flush Cutters....that and perhaps a coiling rod are the only really "specialized" tools that aren't available everywhere.

Good Allen wrench bits last much longer, and strip far less screws, than the cheap, soft freebies in your atty bag....so, if it were me, I'd carefully pick tools individually, for quality.

Anyone who buys this at that price needs there head looked at.... You can buy everything you need for building for ten or twelve quid...
Unless of course you want to brag and play the one upmanship card.

Pretty much - good quality too. And I've said as much since companies started to put these things together.

At the end of the day, if someone wants to overpay for the privilege of having everything in one order, or they like the look of a flashy kit, that's their right. But one can do better for cheaper by doing it yourself.

It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

But on the other hand if you travel a lot, these kits are kinda useful, if it would contain quality tools at a reasonable price.

True, but again, you can still put that together yourself.

I have three kits all told...

- A main kit at home, which contains everything and then some - no holds barred.

- A travel kit, which contains quality tools I really need, and the focus is on small and practical - bag friendly.

- And lastly, a micro kit, containing only a small number of essentials - pocketable.

All of these have been tweaked over the years, but the emphasis is on quality, and I've assembled them myself from numerous sources.

I'm not having a go at anyone who can't be bothered to assemble a kit of their own. Just that you can do better for cheaper, that's all. :)
