Roll pin punches?

While watching a video for installation of pistol parts I saw and heard a reference for roll pin punches. I was not aware that such existed, but I can see the usefulness of such. Does anyone have information on these punches? The other day I spent a little time at harbor freight and could not find such punches.

Thanks

they cheaper ones on amazon, but these are a decent set that will last and last.
just do not use em on anything other than roll pins. ruins the tips.
you also mingt look for a set of transfur punches if you plan on making /fabricating some of your own mounting brackets shims.
makes life a lot easier.
these punches are a good to excellent brand. on par with MAC or SNAP-ON
