Real Avid has released its new Master Bench Block Pro Kit, which has everything you need to safely and efficiently drive pins found in rifles, shotguns, pistols, revolvers and AR platforms.

The Master Bench Block Pro Kit combines a modified Master Bench Block Pro with a removable magnetic pin-catching tray and storage unit containing a Real Avid Accu-Punch Hammer with interchangeable heads, plus a nine-piece standard pin and nine-piece roll pin punch set. The two components latch together when not in use.

A uniquely designed block made of engineering-grade resin, the Master Bench Block Pro includes 14 holes and two extended grooves to ensure optimal positioning of the work piece when removing and installing standard pins and roll pins. Also included are two adjustable Smart-Block Clamps that help keep the work piece firmly in place, freeing both hands for pin-driving operations.

The standard pin and roll pin punches stow conveniently in their own friction tray to keep them organized. As for the punches, they have hex-profile handles with dual rubber O-rings for precision control and a solid purchase in the hand. Additionally, a pin alignment tool is included to help hold and align small pins for insertion.

MSRP for the new Real Avid Master Bench Block Pro Kit is $80. Learn more at
