What do you all carry in your pack for rifle repairs in the backcournty?

My emergency repair kit has evolved over the years.  Some tools are rifle specific and some like the multi tool, duct/electrical tape are more general use.

Rifle specifc for me:

  • USGI threaded cleaning rod, adapter, chamber brush all rubber banded together. 
  • Bore snake (caliber specific) 
  • Allen/Torx wrenches and screwdriver bits for every size on gun/scope all rubberbanded together
  • I'm looking for a small 1/2" type EDC pocket wrench for scope ring bolts. Any suggestions?
  • All this is stashed in a ziplock back in the bottom of my Ute with the gamebags. 

Does anyone carry anything diffrent?  Anythign missing?

I carry a bore snake out of its plastic box, patches, a sample of amsoil lube, a small loctite tube, the allen wrenches and torx bits for rifle, scope, and bipods. I carry a torque driver, which I don't love for in the field. I do like the idea of a small brush. I carry mine in a ziplock in my Qui-ya lid. In the field I have only used patches and a branch to clean my shotgun after a fall and slide. Electricians tape goes on all my muzzles/brakes now. I argue with myself each time I back-pack hunt, and even car-camp hunt, that I just need the tape on the gun and patches in a baggy and I'm good til i get back to camp. Since I took the spill the plastic bag has made every trip though.

Did a search and found Fix-it Sticks, seems to have a nice field system offering, though can't vouch for quality. Engineered in Chicago, Made in Taiwan. They have a 1/2" socket/adapter to use with their T-handle. Seems a little pricey, but also seems like all the tools they have I want. ;) T-handle with extension would be good lightweight alternative to the Wheeler torque driver I currently carry, and they have a small brush adapter.

L1ndsay1, I have handled the Fix-it-sticks and they are a well made kit but more weight than I want to carry in the field. They would go well in a vehicle based or range bag sized kit. If you carry a bore snake why do you carry patches? Just curious. Your kit sounds very similar to mine.

I do like having a collapsible USGI threaded cleaning rod for bore obstructions, bullets stuck in the leade/lands, case head separations, and rims sheared off stuck cases.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a 1/2" box end/open end wrench type tool that is lightweight or multiuse? For use on the NF 1/2" ring cross bolts. Of must use the mutitool pliers and replace nuts afterward if needed?

I think superstition and habit.  I'm bad at taking stuff out, need to improve in that area, especially when I have a better alternative already in the ziploc.
