Hello,

The question regarding which specific punches do I need for Servicing The FN-Browning High Power comes around every so often, so here's a list of the needed punches.

You'll need Roll Pin Punch Number's 1, 2 & 3.

#1 Punch for the R.H. Side Safety Lever Pin. #2 Punch for Extractor Pin. #3 Punch for Sear Lever Pin.

Roll Pin Starter Punches are handy for breaking loose tight roll pins and starting them too. Like above, you'll need Number's 1, 2 & 3.

And you'll need a 5/64" & 3/32" Pin Punch for the Solid Pins.

5/64" Pin Punch for the Mag Disconnect Pin & Trigger Spring Pin and the 3/32" Pin Punch for the Sear Pin, Trigger Pin & Hammer Strut Pin.

You'll also need a Brass Punch for breaking the Trigger Pin loose and a 1/16" Starter Punch for breaking the Mag Disconnect & Trigger Spring Pin loose.

1/16" Starter Punch.

080-475-100WB 4-Way Brass & Nylon Punch Set.

A Prick Punch is also needed for Staking the Mag Disconnect Pin, Trigger Spring Pin & Hammer Strut Pin. You punch/stake the pins, NOT the parts!

Follow-up by giving the staked pin a final punch/staking by placing the tip of the 1/16" Starter Punch mentioned above into the indentation created by the Prick Punch. Of course you'll need to have the pin(s) backed-up by a piece of tool steel or a hardened steel bench block. I use a Starrett No. 129 Hardened Steel Bench Block.

NOTE: Always measure the pin sections on new punches (to be sure their slightly under-sized) before pounding them into a hole! Also, use a No.2 Center Drill or a 5/64th Drill in order to remove some material from the staked end of the Hammer Strut Pin before driving it out when replacing the hammer or the hammer strut assembly. Obviously, you'll need a new strut pin.

Also Note: SK Tools have changed the design of their Roll Pin Punches. SK changed from a style that closely resembled Mayhew's. SK's New-Style Roll Pin Punches have HEX Shaped Handles and the "pin section" isn't quite as long as the other brands. The design change was a good-thing because the slightly shorter pin-sections aren't as prone to bending.

I'd rather beat a bad guy to death with my Browning High Power, than shoot him dead with a plastic pistol.
