I was at a motorcycle swap meet and made an insane impulse buy. I was talking to the guy next to me, he was a retired gunners mate. He had this box of tools he wanted to sell so I bought them for $40. If you could tell me what I have I'd appreciate it. He said the tools are for military weapons, many of which I have. So, what are these tools and are they worth the $40 I paid?

Well worth what you paid.
In the center of the bottom tray the black handle tool that goes "S" shaped at the end is for removing and installing rebound springs in smith and wesson revolvers.
on the white paper the tool on the left is for staking 1911 front sights.
And in the right tray the black tool with the "Star shaped" end is for staking grip bushings in 1911's

Give ya $60 for all of it.....JK, you did great on the price and the tools look to be in good to great condition. Check out Brownells gunsmith tool section. You will most likely see most of them there.
