hammer , punchs, needle nose to hold the pin detent with , and you should have a buffer tube nut wrench but you can get by without it , it requires minimal torque, I checked this and you can hand tighten it and then give it about another 1/8" turn with a punch and hammer if you dont have the tool that sets it at approximatly 38 ft lbs torque when I checked it this way . elect tape to wrap your receiver in when you put the bolt catch pins in " always do this on your first build, I dont do it anymore but its good insurance you dont gouge your first receiver ".
Easiest way to put not loose the pins detents and springs is to put the spring in , put the detent in your needle nose and put it just so it enters the hole a little bit , then push it down the hole the rest of the way with the pin and turn the pin until it hits the groove . I have lost more detents and springs jacking around with a razor knife trying to get them in there and this is the simplest way I have come up with , havent lost either since doing it this way
