    Talking about the Knipex and C-clamp route, these work also:

    The Knipex has more leverage and is better made - from looking at them before I went the cheaper Lowes route.

    It's also very possible that this post is retarded and that there is zero interest in such a tool, and that using used pins is a very very very bad idea.
    This, although I think you already knew the answer to this question. Roll pins, dowel pins (or any time an interference fit is required) aren't supposed to be particularly easy to put in, nor hard with the right tools. As stated earlier a little oil doesn't hurt getting them in or out.

    Pretty sure I wouldn't want to be using those since they have serrations on them, whereas the Knipex do not.

    Proper tools make many jobs simple and easy.

    Roll pin starter punches and roll pin punches are the obvious solution to this simple problem.

    When I was using them, I cut up cheap bicycle tire patches and duct tape in place - easily replaceable. IMO a no-brainer at 1/2 to 1/3 the price.

    I'd would at least tape the jaw surface, smooth or not.

    Since we are playing the money game, the two correct punches needed for an install are almost the same price. So why not just use those?

    The main reason I used them was to re-seat partially removed bolt catch roll pins when replacing standard bolt catches with enhanced catches. I used the Brownell's tool to press it out enough for removal and the compound pliers to press it back in.

    On new builds I use a Walt's Tool and a roll pin punch, if I don't tap the boss for a threaded pin.

    And, yes, I know that it would be easier to use roll pins.

    ETA: I have too many receivers, so I like to tinker with them.
