Driving pins is not always easy, but using a bench block helps simplify the task. It provides a stable platform on which to rest the firearm while driving pins. And with a hole through the block allowing pins to be knocked out and caught in one operation, say goodbye to searching on your hands and knees for one that got away. You can buy a pre-made block, or you can easily make your own. For a truly Canadian bench block, drill a 3/8-inch hole through a hockey puck (above).
