1 gallon ziploc bag.

Use when installing springloaded parts. Keeps you from losing the springs WHEN (not if) they decide to go flying.

vice grips make it easier, but aren't really needed.

You don't even need a punch set. Just some nails of the right diameter, and a screw driver.

A punch set is nice though....

That's what I used. I would recommend a solid bench vise or somthing to put a wood block on top of for taping in the roll pins. Also, I used masking tape on the checkering of my punches to avoid receiver damage when tapping in the mag catch roll pin.

I also covered my wooden block with masking tape for less abrasiveness.
