Greetings to all!

I need some help. I would like to remove the cylinders from my 686 and 629 in order to do some deep cleaning. After searching I can't find what size driver to buy for the yoke screws. I want to buy an individual fixed-blade driver from Brownell's just for this purpose. I have no need for a whole set. Thank you in advanced.

Mike

Just buy the small set. You may want to take the sideplate off at some point.

I have Brownells S&W screwdriver set, place your thumb or finger against the edge of blade and screw head so it wont slide and scratch. If older gun screws could be a little stubborn.

Even if you get hollow ground screwdrivers, be sure the tip goes all the way to the bottom of the slot; most don't in Smith's deep slotted screw heads. If not, extend the hollow grind up the shaft with a small diameter dremel grinding bit.
