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...

In light of the Madrid bombing France has raised its terror alert level from run to hide.

The only higher levels are surrender and collaborate.
