I believe that my 9mm M&P's have 1/8" roll pins; yours should be the same.

An actual roll pin punch makes removing and installing roll pins easier, and doesn't deform the roll pins.

I have a set of roll pin punches made by Grace that I bought from Dillon Precision. Brownells and Midway both probably stock them as well.
