Title: Plunger Tube staking tool
Post by: Badge Pusher on January 13, 2019, 10:22:52 AM
Greetings all,

I need to replace the plunger tube and I'm wrestling with purchasing the tool, and a plunger, or just stopping in to a shop and having it done.

With 3 pistols in my safe, and my son with 2, is it needed often enough to make the math work?

I like tools and doing the work of course.

Badge Pusher, my favorite is the one from Brownell's.
