I received my MP7 yesterday, and I accidentally replace the body pin in 90 degree from what it should be counter clockwise, on the second time when I tried to lube the internal, I can't remove the pin so I tried rotating to it's normal position, got it to approx 15 degrees away, I tried using pin punch, locking pliers without avail.

Any suggestion to remove it?

Here's the picture (I got the second pin out easily)

Where did you guys get the new pin by the way? It happened to me once and What I did was --> grabbed a hammer and a screw driver. But it seems kinda loose now though.

Hey, same prob here. So do I just need some force to get it out?

And how can I in Germany get a new Bodypin? Does KWA USA also ship to Germany or is it not allowed because it is a weapon part? Dont know to much about your laws sorry.

You need pretty strong force to get it out, use rubber hammer to reduce damage though, AFAIK, KWA USA ships to world wide.
