Where can I get a decent set of punches? Shit punches in the "gunsmith tool kit" from midway broke after one usage of trying to bang in trigger roll pin.

Recommendations?

To own is one thing, to use is another thing. Every dremel SME knows that the shafts for the dremel tools are perfect punches. That's +2 for You.

Do you own a Tanfoglio? Have you ever tried to hammer in a trigger roll pin. I don't see how that would work?

Short punches and arbor press were always my garage and gunsmithing friends.

This and a plate with holes drilled in it so you have a solid backstop to drive into. I have also been know to make vice blocks and use a vice to press pins out.

If you are using the hammer/punch method, make sure you use a big enough hammer and swing decisively. There is a video on changing the index pawl on a 1050 that demonstrates this well.

I stopped buying garbage chinese-made tools (punches in particular) a long time ago.  I now use Grace USA exclusively, and they are excellent; I've only broken one of theirs, and it was a 1/16" during a tough job.  Their customer service and warranty are second to none.  Also, they are family run and love 'Merica.  They cost more, but so does everything else worth having in this world.

I'm told by unreliable sources that these punches are tempered in a salt-bath of the tears of disappointed plastic gun shooters after Ben beats them yet again.
Use them for a non-Tanfo or CZ at your own risk as they might just punch straight through your wanna-be gat and Tex Grebner into your leg.

Here's the deal. Ultimately to do this shit right you need a few pinches.

I have the grace ones and the brownells ones (same as Ben sells).

Ideally you want a couple starter punches. Great for starting stubborn roll pins.

Then you want roll pin punches (have a round nipple on the end).

Then you want some standard pin punches too.

And if you're really keen get some roll pin holding punches for re'inserting pins.

Brownells have a wide selection.

Only chumps hammer a roll pin into the trigger. If you Tanfo correctly, that pin goes into the trash as soon as you pull the gun apart... and the CGW Canik trigger pin goes into the gun.

After that is done you don’t need to drive any punches out with hammers to tear the gun down. Except for the tiny one in the ambidextrous safety models, anyway. Other than that, the hammer and trigger pins push out by hand just like a Glock whenever you detail strip the gun.
I won an IDPA match once. It was neat.

I watched your video, bought the pin from cgw, and it doesn't work on the Henning junk trigger he sells.

Resetting everything back to stock, then I'll try it with the stock Tanfoglio trigger.

I've had this set, which used to come in a wood holder, for twenty years. Expensive, but will outlast me.
