The Swiss Army Knife of Opticians.
Western’s engineering solution that saves you time six ways: punches out hinge and eyewire screws, re-establishes a screwdriver slot in a damaged screw head, flares or peens the screw end and can replace a hinge screw with a QuikFix Rivet.
The Shootout arms you with the most power available in a hand tool. The patented lever mechanism takes a gentle squeeze and transforms it into the controlled power needed to easily eject broken screws and reduce damage to the barrel.
The Shootout is simple to align and comfortable to grip even for the smallest hands. Kit includes precision hand tool and complete set of punches and anvils. 8 5/8" long. US Patent #6,006,410.
Insider Info from Joshua
"The head tool buyer for a very large chain came to me one day at a trade show and asked what we had for punching out screws. We had nothing. For the remainder of the show I asked our clients if punching out screws was a 'thing'. Sure enough, it happens more often than I imagined. Building a better solution to what was available was the engineering challenge. Making it reliable and user friendly came after several evolutions. The additional features making it a 'multi-tool' came from customer input."
