    Whenever I try to remove the body pins on my G&P m4 they won't come out. I have tried it with multiple tools and have had no luck. Any suggestions?

    P.S: sorry if duplicate thread I did use the search bar

    1. Remove any button-cap screws from the left side of the gun, if it has any.
    2. Grab a screwdriver (or a punch if you have them) and a hammer, and tap the pins out from the left to the right side.

    They are knurled and interference fit to the receiver, they are probably going to take a GOOD whack.

    Yeah I had trouble getting 1 of the 2 body pins on my G&P MOE M4 out. It didnt line correctly with the body and gearbox so it takes alot of force to get in and out but it can be done.

    Just take a nail set and put a piece of leather or thick cloth between it and the body pin and give it a couple could whacks. That's the best way I have found so far if they are being stubborn.

    Yep like everyone else says it seems like they won't come out but you just need to hit harder.
