    I need some advice on removing the sear pin from a post 64 Model 70 (One of the Wal-Mart bargains). Last night I tried tapping it out with a brass punch, and it wouldn't budget -- bent the punch! I'm soaking in Kroil. Any other suggestions? (Gun is clean and like new, no corrosion, caked on cosmoline, etc.) Thanks.

    Buy a nail-set punch at any hardware store.

    It is tapered and is much stronger then any brass punch, and much stronger then even a straight steel punch that is small enough to go through the hole.

    You only use it to get the pin broke loose. After that, you will need a small steel pin punch to complete the job.

    Be sure and support the action on something hard and heavy (like a vice or steel bench block) so all the force is applied to the pin, not just moving the whole action.
