Last time, I couldn't get the front pin out without a punch. I could get it out partially, but not all the way. The rifle isn't a "safe queen" in that I'm "afraid" or "opposed" to shooting it, I just choose not to leave it assembled in my house. Every person has their own preference. Just like I choose not to keep an AR magazine loaded - this is not a self-defense weapon for me.
$20 for pins is only about 20 rounds of ammo these days anyways, and that's when I can find it. The price isn't prohibitive; it's the functionality that I am interested in.
Get em, try em and report back.
As far as the front pin being too tight, have you tried pushing it after you have the rear pin out and the receivers are hinged a bit, rather than pushing it while they are still tight together. That should loosen the front pin some.
