    I bought a 21A 25auto with a broken trigger. I ordered a replacement trigger but how do you get the trigger pin out. Arbor press or punch and hammer?

    I'd use a BRASS punch and hammer and very carefully drive it out slowly. If I remember right there's a spring holding it in.

    I've jigged the frame to secure it and tried hammer and punch but it ain't moving. The pin appears only to come out one side but again it is not moving? The sping doesn't seem to effect it. I'll attach a picture for a better understanding of my problem.

    Since it's proving to be difficult to remove and I can't see the gun 1sthand I'd recommend you take it to your local gunsmith.

    It looks like you may have to press it out. It's just in there tight!

    Ok that's what I figured since it was flared on one side. Thanks for the help.

    Got it out. Just took a lil bit more pressure than I originally thought. Now I gotta figure out how it goes back together. LOL
