    I am having trouble installing a gas tube in my low pro gas block. Is there a tool, like a bench block or something to hold the gas block steady? also, can anyone recommend a roll pin holder? I found one on the web, but it is like $20 and I'm not certain if it will work. Is $20 reasonable?

    thanks!

    They do make holders/blocks. I've used a piece of wood. I usually get pin started with channel locks same as bolt catch pin.

    Go to Brownell's website. They are in Iowa and sell what you need. Either search their web or give them a call on their dime using the 800 phone number, or you could just contact them via email and their website.
