Hello all,

I've been following the multiple videos on YouTube from Boobie and GeckoActual, and trying over and over to get the pin out from the bolt sector.

I've ran into a small problem. It appears that 1/16th "punch/chisel" tools I purchased do not fit, I've ran everywhere from Canadian Tire to Home Depot with no luck, even bought a small drill bit that was "1/16th," and still doesn't want to fit into that hole.

"Small precision" flat tool seems to fit inside, but the pin doesn't budge.

I wanted to make sure I was hitting the proper "pin" out, is this the pin inside the little hole here?

(See the first photo with the hole, that little metal piece sticking out.. what is it? I think It's hollow because I can see through it at certain angles)

Any tips and help is greatly, greatly appreciated.

(Trying to clean and lube it out down there)

Ideally a 1/16" roll pin punch is the correct tool.  I actually have used other small pinches but most tend to be a bit large even if marked 1/16"

Hey GCW360,

Thanks for the reply. Can you confirm that metal piece on the bolt in the first image is the "pin" I need to hammer out please?

I agree, I cannot find any "punch/pinch tools," the one from:

Home Depot <click link here>
Canadian Tire <click link here>

I just picked these 3/4" nails up after showing the staff the bolt, he said nothing would "fit" so to use these "3/4"" nails lol,

Guess I can try it out later..

(not sure why image is rotated.. link)

Thanks Guys.

Thanks Guys.
The metal piece that looks like it is recessed into the polymer cylinder that is hollow (roll pin) is the piece that comes out!

By this and do the job right: 230-100-001WB
#1 Roll Pin Punch

Mfr Part: 25000939

Main page: http://www.brownells...s-prod5551.aspx

It's worth the 4 bucks plus shipping.  While you are at it get #'s 2, 3, and 4 too.  It's practically all you will need for most applications with airsoft roll pins

Hi GCW360,

Thank you for the reply, I took your recommendation and placed and order with browns ordering #1-#4! I think shipping might be more to Canada, but it's doesn't matter at this point!

I hope this will work, since the nails didn't work, this darn pin is quite stubborn.

Note, if you damage the roll pin it's going to be a B%T$H to get out. Also, get a second pair of hands to hold the cylinder when you start knocking out the pin.

@GCW360 I was tempted to just order a new bolt from KWAUSA, but I ordered your tools,

Alas if the tools fail me again, then I will have to order a full new bolt from KWA lol.

Thanks!

Let's hope the tools do the trick then.

I've found that if you don't have a punch you can use the same size Allen key you would use to take out the flash hider grub screw, be carefull to not demolish that hole though.

It took me an hour to get that thing out. It was so frustrating and i broke like 3 punches and bent about 20 nails. Its a pain but it will eventually come out.

Oh yah I was about to order a brand new bolt from the pro shop, I figure out that you have to order all the parts separately and they don't even have 4-5 of the items needed in stock. BUMMER :( !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
