Had a similar problem, used a brass punch and a hammer. They are alot tighter than normal 10/22 and my bolt was tighter also. If all the clearance are tighter, more accurate?

Brass will not harm it. Have it positioned sturdy and give it a good wack not quite as hard as driving a nail. Do worry it is covered by the stock.
