    Glock 17 Gen 4 pin difficult to 'punch' out

    Hello. First post.
    I've got an upgraded slide release to install.
    I've removed the slide, and the smaller pin came out fairly easy.
    The larger size pin that goes through the slide release mechanism is giving me trouble.
    I've tried a 1/8" punch from the left side of gun and have given it what I consider to be a fairly good tap with a hammer, but the pin won't budge.

    I decided to stop, and ask here before hitting it any harder.

    Any thoughts? I purchased the gun new probably 5 years ago and have never removed this pin.

    Thanks !

    I'd say welcome....but there's nobody on this piece of shit site anymore. It use to be the best site on the web until these assholes took it over and let it go to shit with nothing but fuxking advertisers. Put a little Break Free on it and let it sit overnight. Then tap it again. I'll bet it comes out. https://www.amazon.com/Break-Free-Cl.../dp/B08424N374

    Here. Try this site. There's actual people that talk to eachother over there....http://theboresite.com/
