Which way does the pin get driven out? Do I start from the ejection side or the other side to drive the pin out?

BTW: It's an AMD 63 kit.

They are not tapered so theoretically either way.

However I read some where, that they were pressed in L to R and therefore the preferred method was to press them out R to L.

Either way. You'll be amazed at how much force it takes to get the damn pin started. Once it gets going, it's smooth sailing.

Use a press or a heavy hammer. A brass punch is nice also. Gloves should be considered a requirement. Ask me how I know [:)]

I use custom bench vise that I modified just for this task. makes pressing barrel pins a breeze. :headspin:
