Its hard to do a job correctly if one doesn’t have the proper tools. I have made a hobby of collecting armorer tools to go with the wide variety of firearms that come into my shop. Some I may never use, but are works of art, both in their concept and execution. Others are overly complicated for tasks that can be better performed with a hammer and punch. Here is a look at some of the Chinese Armorer tools I’ve been using and collecting over the last 20 years. The Chinese Armorer tools have great contrast – some are finely made to the highest Western standards, others (like their hammer and screwdriver) are complete junk.
