To getting the SOB's out? I've removed plenty of A2's, and they came out with out too much trouble. This is on an FNMI A1 barrel, I've heated it, hit it (really hard). Nothing even budged the damn things. Any of youi guys know a trick that might make this easier? Thanks

What Dano said, hammer size 2 lb minimum. Good hefty punch. Very good support for the sight base.

Don't be a wuss, knock the hell out of it. Light taps will peen the pin turning it into a rivet, then it is dremmel and drill time.

I've been using a brass punch, gonna break out the big steel one and 2lb. hammer! I was just wondering as I've never had one this hard to remove.

No need to, I am or, was an Armorer for the Army. Just never seen a FSB that was this difficult to remove.

Yes. It is a 4mm socket which is used to surround the pin (I think I got the idea from Troy). I ground it down slightly on one side to match the curve of the FSB. It provides direct support behind the pin. The other key is having a hard unforgiving surface (metal anvil) to support the socket so there is no absorption of energy from the hammer blow. Next, whack the hell out of it with a big hammer using a metal punch (i.e.: ground down nail set with a concave point to center the punch). This is only what I use- there are other methods which I am sure work as well...

After soaking with some wd40...my FSB/barrel fits in my universal plastic bench block from brownells. IIRC my taper pins were installed from the ejection side, therefore pound out from the safety side.
