Weapen bit mag is for storage, not a tool. The hole is for a drain not for use. that what the pen is for. I will hopefully own both soon - thanks 511 keep coming up with the innovations. Everything I own from you guys is top notch
I was excited about this product so I could have the basic bits needed while at the range or home for quick repairs. This product is a horrible design and doesn’t function! That’s shocking to me being a 5.11 product and being “designed” by a Army Ranger. To be brief, the bits slide inside the hollow body with the tip of the first one sticking out to use. Due to the body, you don’t get much of the tip sticking out to use and if it’s a tight space, just forget about using it. Unlike a typical bit driver, there’s nothing that essentially hold the bit in place so you can apply torque. With this tool, it just spins unless a bolt is extremely loose. The inside body needs to be the shape of the hex bits, not a straight tube, so a person cal apply any torque. The spring inside the top cap is nothing more than one you might find in a ball point pen. It can’t force enough pressure on all the bits from the top to apply any torque whatsoever or you wouldn’t be able to put the cap on. What you end up with is having a bit that wants to “retract” up inside it. Side note, I missed the fact that the body was plastic so to me it just cheapens it.
It’s as if nobody actually used this before it went into production. Al this said, it’s hard to believe this product is $20+ dollars when a pocket Stanley bit screwdriver is $5. Obviously, I’m in the process of returning it.
My suggestions to 5.11: metal body with a hex inner tube, slender fore end to allow more of the bit to be exposed. Forgot about the “rattle” and just shorten the length as well. Remove the reverse thread cap.
