Default Hammer gun tools

As a follow-up I had the chance to visit Dixie Gun Works in Union City, Tenn. while searching for ducks (notice I didn't say hunting) - anyway they have quite a few very useful offerings in the guntool category, including a hammer puller - see pictures. And yes, that is Parker top lever spring you see, complete with pin as well as an assortment of grip caps.

I assume the one in the bottom right is the puller and the one above would be used to possibly press it back on ? Anyway if immcorrect what did DGW stick you for the pair ?

Craig, I don't recall exactly, as there were other "things" in my purchases, they have an on-line catalog you can check. Somewhere around $40 @ I think.

Obviously these tools are geared towards common oparations and parts with blank powder firearms.
Are you able to confirm if any of these actually work well on your Parkers?

I would think that maybe the hammer puller may work, and the spring tools maybe for a hammer spring only.

Brian,
the hammer puller worked nicely. Popped the hammer I tried it on right off. I did put pieces of paper under the jaws, as a precaution against marring, no problem.

The spring tools, the one is obviously intended for the long springs found in various locks. The thumb screw spring press needs modified to work on the top lever spring, but I think it will, by shortening the longer leg. You can reverse the screw position in this, as it is drilled/tapped on both ends.

Would it make sense for the PGCA to maintain a collection of specialty tools which could be rented, with $$ going to PGCA?
