barrel pin removal...

Hi All,

My buddy and I were cleaning up an RTG cocking tube...

we got the tube off and cleaned up with an end mill and a dremel. Turned out great

Now I have the trunion with a cut off barrel in it... How can I remove the barrel pin? would it be easiest with a hydralic press?

What type of drift or punch do you all recommend...

My first attempt I chucked it into a vise and applied force with an arbor press... the arbor press gave enough force to start flexing the punch I was using...

Any suggestions?

Search the Member's Gallery Forum; recently JFK posted something about how he drilled the barrel pin out, then used a punch to remove the remaing portion of the pin. Don't remember exactly which post it was, but it was not too long ago.
