First make sure the bolt is lined up with the notch in the receiver so you can get a punch properly allined to it. Punch the pin out from the top so it drops out of the bottom of the gun. The pin is splined so it only goes one way. If one way won't come out, try the other way. If the gun was ever taken apart before its possible the pin is in backwards.
