P365 gunsmithing – Tools used in our videos

Sig P365 gunsmithing is fairly easy and only requires a few tools. However, we do recommend a good set of gunsmithing screwdrivers to keep you from striping the screws that hold on the rear sights on the P365 XL. We stripped several alan wrenches getting them off but when using a quality screwdriver, they came off easily. 

There are several manufacturers of quality gunsmith tools that you can choose from and at a price point for just about every budget. These can be purchased online from places like Brownells and Amazon.

I recommend that people purchase their gunsmith tools at Brownells whenever possible. Brownells has Guaranteed Forever policy on most of their products. If you don’t need it, don’t want it or don’t like it, they will take it back anytime. I have used their Guaranteed Forever policy on punches that I broke removing stuck roll pins. It was a simple process of contacting customer service and they replaced the punches at no cost to me.
