Real Avid Releases Master Hammer and Pin Punch Set

Plenty of firearm repair jobs require the skills of a trained gunsmith, but there are also many jobs that DIYers can tackle. However, it comes down to having the right tools for the job—the kind that isn’t typically found at the big box retailer or even local hardware store. This is where Real Avid continues to fill the void when it comes to DIY firearm repair.

For 2024, this includes arguably the most essential tools that should be on any home gunsmith’s workbench, an Armorer’s Master Hammer.

Armorer’s Master Hammer
Tested and influenced by gunsmiths, the Armorer’s Master Hammer is a 20-ounce, 9-1/2-inch long, forged hammer with a full-length tang for a perfect balance and ideal ergonomics for precise control.

This all-new version offers a unique take on the professional-grade gunsmithing hammer. It features a modular, dual-head design with interchangeable hammer heads. Included is a removable soft-blow hammer head cover, plus steel, brass, and nylon hammerheads that are easily swapped to meet the task at hand.

The Armorer’s Master Hammer was developed for optimal weight and balance, and with exceptional ergonomics, while it is built from forged steel and incorporates a full-length tang for maximum strength and balance. It weighs in at a comfortable 22 ounces while it is 9.5 inches long to deliver strikes with precision and authority for light to heavy jobs. The Real Avid Armorer’s Master Hammer is outfitted with a molded handle with ergonomic contouring and no-slip grooving to ensure a solid grip for accurate, controlled blows that can provide just the right amount of force.

The Armorer’s Master Hammer is also available in kit form with the inclusion of an Accu-Punch 11-Piece Standard Pin Punch Set, which features 11 standard pin punches made of hardened steel with nickel plating. The punches’ hex-shaped handle and dual rubber O-rings further offer a solid grip and control when driving pins. It comes with a snap-close storage case with a flip-up pin holder, while included punches are sized 1/16 (two each), 5/64, 3/32, 1/8, 9/64, 5/32, 3/16, 7/32, ¼, and 9/32 inches.
