    After getting my press and proceeding to stick a steel rod into the wall of my garage, (good thing it didn't hit me, it would have went in like a bullet)I bought this. Never seen a pin that could argue with this set-up.http://ak-builder.com/ak/modules.php...howpage&pid=10

    Passing on a tip I read somewhere:

    Of course, soak the pin area for a couple of days with Kroil or your favorite creeping oil.

    Using the press pin adapter in the link above, apply pressure on the pin (not so you have to jump on the lever, but quite a bit).

    Take a 5lb hammer, and SHARPLY (doesnt have to be too hard) strike the lower crossbar (the I-beam that is adjustable for height, basically your support surface for the front trunion)

    You should hear a sharp CRACK!, which will be your pin breaking loose (may require repeated strikes to get it to move). Once it has broken free, it should start moving with the standard press method.

    Your mileage may vary, but it has worked for me!
