Default Traditions Pursuit Pro Takedown

Folks,
I would like to tear down my TPP completely, and I've gotten as far as the receiver.

For the life of me I can't get the pins out that attach the trigger and hammer assemblies.
Are they just an extra tight fit or do I need a tool other than a hammer & punch?

Any help is more than welcome.



Regards,
C64

It is best not to further disassemble the gun. If the inside of the receiver needs cleaned spray it with brake cleaner.

Thanks alsaqr,
Any reason why?

I've held an FFL & gunsmithing license from NYS. I've torn down and reassembled everything under the sun.
I was just wondering why this pins are so darn hard to remove.

I've done the brake cleaner/WD-40 thing, but I'd love to be able the really get at the interior parts for a thorough cleaning & lube.

Regards,

No help on the takedown, but i gotta know; is there a reason you chose a living fossil as your screen name, sounds fishy?

Very fishy!
I'm usually an Earth Science teacher...when I'm not hunting, fishing or working on my old, plastic Chevy (64).
But, my screen name is probably no more bizarre than my e-mail UN; axolotl.
Maybe that's why I don't get a whole lotta spam?

Some of the pins in that gun have serrated heads and they are very hard to remove.
