What is the differences in the two sets PS106 & PS107 other than one comes in a box and the other in a tube and the box costs $3.00 more. They look the same to me. Thanks

Actual tools pretty much the same I think. I've got both. Boxed tools are likely to date early 50's and tubes are early 60's. At least that's what I've received. So, for "collectibility some folks may prefer the box version. Either way, the tools are great (NOS) and both come with a GI pouch.

Thanks Eric,
I think I will go for the cheaper set then as I don't really care about the collectability. Need 3 so that will save me about 9 bucks

You've got about a 50/50 chance of getting a late production kit with the tubes, the boxes I got are all '54 dated, with early features on the handle and no buffer installed.

Once mine arrived, I tossed out the 50 year old packaging. The kit's in the stock recess of my WRA!
