RangeMaxx Firearm Multi-Tool
I got the Real Avid gun tool a couple years ago and it works great. I can't believe Bass Pro copied it. I got me one of these Rangemaxx tools and it's not as nice.

20 tools in one? Not really
NOTE - this was a gift. I would not have bought this for myself. I haven't used it yet, but looking at the magnetic bits I found out that it was missing the larger Phillips head -PH2-. On the bright side, I have two 9/64" hex head bits if I ever need to use two at a time. Not a knock on BPS as they are just the distributer of this product which is made in China. I haven't contacted BPS for an exchange since it's a 3 hr round trip. I find it funny that Range MAXX counts each magnetic bit AND the hex head driver as individual tools! AND one of the 20 tools is a 5/32" allen wrench which is also included -hopefully- as one of the magnetic bits. Really only 5 tools in my mind.

Cheaply made, broke 1st use
I thought this would be a great tool to throw in my pack to take hunting. I got exactly ONE use out of it. I was taking the screws out of my stock to clean my rifle and one of the screws holding the thing together popped right out. Couldn't get it to go back in. Yes, BP may have been willing to swap it out, but the hour and a half drive back would have cost more in gas than the thing was worth. Keep your money and look for a different option.

I've had my RangeMaxx Firearm Multi-tool for almost a year now and it has been worth the $18 I paid for it. Seems the price has gone up a couple of bucks since I 1st bought it, but still seems reasonable. The only gripe I have is the bits don't seem to fit well into the screw heads... only the Philips, and flat head work well. I don't know if the paint coating is too thick on the allen and torx bits. The knife is sharp out of the box and the pin punch, claw knife, choke tube wrench (sight adjustment combo) are all good tools to have in a single unit. I wouldn't recommend putting extremely too much torque when using the bits because it will cause the tool to flex a bit. Otherwise I like it better than the Real-Avid equivalent tool.
