I was using AK-Builder barrel pin removal tool to push barrel pin out of a MAK-90 and the pin came out but the AK-Builder barrel pin push rod is now solidly stuck in place. Anyone have tricks/tips/tools to free up the pin from the trunnion?(I now know that a Chinese barrel pin is 6.5mm and an AK-Builder (i.e. European Barrel pin is 7.0 mm) Nonetheless I need ideas as to how to extract/drill/press this pin out. I had a gentleman try to mill it out and he said he was not able to do so. Apparently the AK-Builder Barrel pin punch (which is lodged in the barrel pin slot) is hardened to the point of problem.
Anyone have any ideas? Also, who amongst you, should the pin be inextricable, be skilled enough with a mill or whatever machinery is necessary to cut the trunnion to pieces allowing for the barrel and it's components to be salvaged!?
