    I'd like to make a punch for the pins for my G19 out of a small screwdriver. Can someone give me the decimal equivalant of 3/32 so that I can use a micrometer to measure the diameter as I grind?

    Thanks,
    Oak

    3/32" = 0.09375" = 2.38mm

    JMO, but since the trigger pin is plastic, just buy the right punch for the job.

    1.000 divided by 32 is 0.03125, times 3 is 0.09375

    Thanks for the answers. Sorry to have to ask, but my calculator has dead batteries as I found out when I went to do the math myself. It's been a long time since I was able to do that without the electronic brain. I want to get to work on this tonight.

    You can use an Allen key, too.

    Oh it is not plastic.
    Still I'd just pony up the $6 and buy the Glock one. Cool factor yo. That said, I cut a chunk of stout cloths hanger wire, bent an eye on the end and keep it on my key ring. Works just fine.

    We are talking about the trigger housing pin right?

    No, when you said "....but since the trigger pin is plastic..." I'd have to assume we're talking about the Trigger pin, which is not plastic.
