Tools used in the Beretta 92 96 M9 Series Videos

In the Beretta 92 96 M9 Series of videos, I used several tools and I figured that I would share what I used for each step in this post. There are affiliate links in this posting to get you to the exact product that I own and used in the video series. Not all links are affiliate links. 

When purchasing tools I try to buy them from Brownells since they have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. I have roll pin punches that have been replaced with no hassle because I broke one. Yes, I do have a couple of Harbor Freight tools that I used in this video. They serve their purpose.
