Tools used in the Polymer80 PF940SC completion videos

A Polymer80 pistol is by far the easiest 80% gun to finish. In this post, we will show you what tools we used in our PF940SC completion video and when we used them. 

There are affiliate links in this posting to get you to either the exact product or a similar product (some items I own have been updated or discontinued) that I use in the video series. However, not all links are affiliate links.

Since I used the Glock 26 from our disassembly and reassembly videos the only thing that I needed to purchase was the PF940SC which I got from Brownells.
