What size pin punch do I need for the ejector roll pin?

And why do they use a roll pin instead of a solid pin?

Compress the ejector and ejector spring with a 3/8" punch, start the ejector roll pin with a hammer then use a 1/16" punch to set the pin flush... I'm sure there is a good reason for a roll pin instead of a solid pin, but I can't offhand tell you why... maybe Tweak will wander in and let us both know! edited to add: Now that I'm thinking about it, a roll pin will compress as it is installed making it much less likely to walk out, hanging up the works...
