Okay... any tips on getting the gas tube pin out?

I broke (2) 1/16 punches and a (1) 1/16 drill bit.

The pin has not budged.

Hey Tweak,

I did a quick search in the archives and found out the roll pin is really 5/64.

I cut down a 5/64 drill bit and used that. That got it out.

Looks like I'm going to Sears tomorrow to get a new punch and a couple of drill bits..

ETA: Yeah, that short 1/16 probably would have worked.

I'll consider this a learning experience!

Thankfully it isn't going to be an expensive one!

I'm in the process of un-banning my Colt MT6700C.
