Default Firing Pin Retaining Pin Question

How hard do you have to hit it to get it out????

I'm afraid I'll damage mine!! I've seen video of knocking the thing out but it ain't coming out easy.

A firm solid base to set the bolt on, is the key. Not how big a hammer you got!

We have a special steel fixture we use, along with a 1/8" punch and a 4 oz ball peen. That's right, 4 ounce.


Most folks try to drill a hole in a 2X4 and lay bolt across it, but wood absorbs too much of the blow and doesn't move the pin. One trick I've heard is balancing bolt on a socket, on concrete floor.
