Magna-Matic has come out with a new precision screwdriver, model PSSD, which features a CNC-machined steel body with bright nickel plating. Its handle is hollowed out and fitted with a Delrin plastic end cap, so that you can store a couple of bits inside the screwdriver body.

It can work with standard 1/4″ hex screwdriver bits, and a powerful magnet ensures that bits “will never fall out, ever.”
Magna-Matic designed it with a deeply knurled handle which that say provides an “unmatched grip.”
The driver weighs 10.6 ounces, with end cap and a single bit. It comes with (4) bits, also USA-made: Phillips #2, slotted 1/8″, 7/32″, 5/16″.
This doesn’t really seem like a precision screwdriver to me. Precision-made, perhaps, but it doesn’t really look to be a “precision screwdriver” like the many styles I’ve used in the past. That doesn’t make it any less appealing though – this looks like a fantastic bit holder screwdriver. And maybe it is suited for small fasteners, but that doesn’t look to be the case from the product image.
It doesn’t look to be small enough to be pocketable, at least not like my favored Wera EDC bit holder screwdrivers, but it doesn’t look to be especially large, either. Big enough to be able to deliver enough torque, small enough so as to not be unwieldy. Photos could of course be misleading, but I don’t think so.
