Firing pin/stop removal

I plan on replacing the firing pin and stop and spring on my Systema Colt.What do yal use to remove these parts?I've seen a special tool at Brownells to remove the extractor and firing pin but thought there might be something else I could use.

The Brownell's tool appeals to my Tool Geek side, but really you don't need anything beyond a pin punch to depress the firing pin and remove the stop and the extractor. Beware the firing pin flying away, though.

BTW the extractor on my Sistema was a bear to remove and the Brownell tool being brass, I'm sure it would have bent like spaghetti. I ended up bending a 1/8" steel pin punch but I did get it out eventually.
