HOLY CRAP!

I just acquired a Bushmaster Bushmaster to add to my marker collection, and I bought it from a guy who obviously took less than spectacular care of it. Alright, so I went to remove the pins in the grip frame that hold the trigger and microswitch in place, and they just ain't going anywhere. I broke two punches trying to get them out. Tried heat, tried hammering, tried a punch, tried a nail, and they are just plain STUCK (they appear to have either been loc-tited into place, or rusted there). So, are there any of you long time users who have a secret to getting these out? This guy also screwed up some of his wiring, so I really need to get the microswitch out so I can have access to all the wiring crap (after I get the pins out, it should be a breeze to fix, he just ripped his 'noid wires, and one of the switch wires out, and I got it for only $150 Very Happy ).

Anyway, any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

heat those babies really good, it should melt, I'd try heating and turning at the same time. I'm pretty sure you can get a new tray pretty easy! So if you snap them off no big deal Smile

good luck man. those pins are hard enough to remove normally. if your right and they are loctited then your going to have a hard time. I had to pound the crap out of mine for them to come out. I broke at least 3 punches.

Well, after nearly melting the frame, breaking another punch (thank God I bought Craftsman), and bending inumerous nails, I've decided to take a new approach. I've examined the frame thoroughly and discovered that the pins are, at minimum, very rusted and at maximum, loc-tited, and then very rusted. But I discovered I can push my microswitch to one side and expose a small portion of the pins holding it in place. With a small saw blade, I can cut the pins on each side, freeing the switch, and then remove the pins with pliers or vise grips. After I do that, I'm drilling the holes out and tapping threads for some small set screws to hold it in.

UPDATE:

Well, after trying to saw the pins out, I realized that they make those pins out of some VERY strong metal, so I decided to try one last ditch effort, and soaked them in Liquid Wrench. Let it sit overnight, and VOILA, all pins out and accounted for.
