You should find enough of the three type of repair tool kits to give to all the Repair Techs including the ones in Jupiter and Zaton you haven't visited yet. Things are much easier in the 1.4 version. I think it was the 1.3 version that the Expert Tools were so rare in my Game that it took 7 months Game Time before I found my first set. Of course you can always make a trip to visit Forester in the Red Forest. I'm not sure you were aware that he can do all three levels of upgrades on all armors and weapons but he's not cheap.
The Red Forest used to be super tough in early versions with a massive amount of Military you had to fight to get through to Forester. Now it's much easier. Also in the previous version, you could leave gunsmith toolkits in a stash with a single bar of life remaining and they would replenish if you got far enough away ( for them to go off-line or if you left the level ) and you could use them as new again. The entire 1.3 economy was made on spending a lot of time transporting used weapons, repairing them on a mass scale with 30 to 50 gunsmith tool kits in one location in desired "home bases" usually in safe territory and making money once they were made new again. 1.4 eliminated that dynamic but it was probably for the better. Now you make money doing side tasks and on mutant parts ( not meat ) to the Scientists.
I don't think getting the Rostok Repair Tech drunk accomplishes anything.

I finally did the Wild Territory. That's the Cordon, Garbage, Agroprom, Agroprom Underground, Rostok, Dark Valley, X-18, Army Warehouses ( partially ) and the Wild Territory in about 6 weeks Game Time. Fast for me. I escorted Kruglov to the edge of the WT and remained behind for some more action, stash activations and loot runs to Rostok.
