Inexpensive way to finely adjust K31 front sight?

I've been looking online and the specificly made tools go for about $150. Is it easy enough to drift the front sight with a punch and a hammer?

I picked up a tool awhile back but before that I used a brass drift. Just took it easy and took my time with out "hammering" on it.

I've heard of people modifying nut splitters to work. I hate the idea of plugging other sites, but there is one dedicated to Swiss rifles that my wife uses for information. I'm sure they have something. I'll nudge her to this thread

I'd be inclined to just use a brass punch

Here's a Youtube video worth checking out.
I've got the crazy over-built Swiss armorer's tool that's now selling in the mid $300s. Yikes!
