I use the bench block along with the pin punch to push the barrel link pin.

For bench block and punches:

They have several different styles, there is even one just designed for 1911's.

Zot, get Brownell's catalog and keep it at hand. More tools and stuff for gun work than you could think of. And they are a good company to deal with.
