I know this topic has probably been covered many times. But, I just wanted to share my frustration with removing a barrel pin. I have tried punching it out with a 3LB hammer. I even went and bought a 12 ton press. I soaked the trunion in Kroil. I then went to the local hardware store and got about 8, 1/4 grade 8 bolts. Hacked the treads off to about 3/4" and the things just bend. One even hit me in the belly Anyways, I was thinking about buying a tungston carbide rod about an inch long and just smaller than the pin diameter and pushing it with that. Short of drilling it out, im running out of ideas.
