    How do I accomplish this? The pin rotates in the frame so it is not pressed in. I know this because both ends of the pin have small tapered indentations and I was able to get a small punch into the indent and rotate the pin. So what is holding it in? Thanks.

    I am pretty sure there is a spring arm holding it in a grrove on the pin. Book says just tap it out from either direction...

    Similar to the hammer and trigger pins in an AR.

    That seems to be the case with the aftermarket pin but the original is flared on both ends and 'floats' in the frame. Kind of an odd arrangement and essentially it is a one time use so either I leave it in for a complete cleaning (not a huge deal as this area can be cleaned easily without removal) or I make an 'aftermarket' style pin which is held in place by the trigger spring) Probably leave it in place for now until after the the hammer modification I plan to accomplish.
