lets talk specialty sockets.

i have been trying to source locally a socket to take apart the injectors on a cummins/bosch p-pump.
not even my big rig parts shops can get it.
i can find them on amazon with bluepoint/snap on name on them.
but really snap on on amazon?
i dont want to spend 50$ on a single socket and end up with chineseum junk that might get the job done one time and might not?
i know i can run into the snap on or mac tools truck and probably have one at double the price in a week.
has anyone ever bought name brand snap on / mac tool brands from amazon.
the socket i am looking for is a 1/2" drive deep well 32 point socket.
made specifically for removing taking apart the bosch pump injectors.
there is another one that is a 33 point socket but specific to mercedes or bmw?
one of them?
i just find it wierd that i cant find one at any of the medium to big rig parts supplies the normal parts store looks at me wierd when i ask and i can only find them on amazon which i am not a big fan of for quality stuff.
anybody have one laying around they want to get rid of or loan out?
right now i have everything on hand to upgrade the injectors except for that dang socket?
thanks for reading

What's the torque setting on them? If it's not ridiculously high Chinese junk might be fine.

Also consider that any brand may well be made in China.
