I just received a PowerAssist I ordered from SOG warranty department customized with components exactly the way I wanted it, with scissors, awl, bit driver, and file.
I started with the sales department and was first told they don't swap out tools anymore. So I started asking about buying the parts individually and the extra shim and washer pack and doing it myself as I had heard of online. The sales guy knew nothing about the the extra shim and washer pack, perhaps it was discontinued before his time. I politely asked if it wouldn't make more sense to have their warranty department do it, make sure it's all right, than to have them ship to me, me bugger it up, and ship it back to warranty and they fix it and ship it back to me.
He put me on hold, came back, and said it turns out they will sell it through warranty just the way I want.
At this point they got me just exactly what I want. Mind you, warranty isn't the best at communication about it. I was told I'd get an email which never happened. I called back and the best I got was an order number over the phone. So what? These warranty guys are blue collar guys fixing and assembling tools. I have in my hands the very tool I wanted inside of 2 weeks, so I couldn't be happier.
Try that out with Victorinox and see what you get.
SOG's price for a base PowerAssist is much higher than what you could buy one from Amazon for. But you then still have to buy the add on parts. SOG gives you credit for the unused parts you are swapping out for so it all pretty much evens out (unless you'd rather tinker yourself and value those extra parts).
I decided to remove the inside tool cover for faster access.
Here you can see no washers were used. The scissors and bit driver each took up 2 of the 6 available slots which I used for the file and awl.
Drivers are still available with the bit kit.
The PowerAssist and bit kit fit just fine in a nylon Leatherman Surge sheath which I like because it affords horizontal belt carry.
