    Flip it over and drive it the other way?

    I know they aren't tapered pins or holes, but sometimes a pin or hole gets a little taper to it that's upexpected.

    Did you push in on the side of the extractor? It should allow the pin to be pushed out by hand.

    Yep. I tried from both sides. No movement either way.

    Extractor pin (solid, not roll) came out just fine. Didn't need to use any extra force with it. It is the roll pin holding in the ejector pin that I'm having the issue with.

    you have to depress the ejector into the bolt head first, then remove the roll pin. a brass case can work in a pinch to do this.
    gotta love her ;)

    That one needs the ejector pushed in. Brownells makes a tool to compress it. They have a nice video showing it’s use.

    I was using a case and a clamp with rubber faces to compress/depress the ejector.

    Honest folks, my wife says my superpower is I read the instructions first. I even went through a few extra videos to make sure that the people in them weren't using a lot of force.

    Rinse and repeat with the go.
    Thank you. Did that with both and they showed I'm in tolerance.

    After returning that giant turd of a rifle back to Brownells and getting my money refunded I decided to invest it in this.

    PSA AKV-9 in OD green.






    I also decided to throw this in at the request of my son.

    I've never found Ak's to be all that appealing (cosmetically) to me, but that AKV looks badass. I actually really like the way that looks!

    I hope you can make it to the group shoot and bring it along! IOW- Don't come without it

    I asked my brother if he would like to come which he does so if he can get the time off we will make the trip out and I will definitely have the AKV with me.
