The best way is to remove the pin and press it out . But I have used a BFG and a piece of small angle iron ( 1X1 ? ) . I went around the diameter of the gas block on that tiny lip it has .
To re-install is the tricky part . I used a hot air gun ( at work we use it for some bearings ) , an oven should work . I heated up the gas block to expand the O.D. , so I could slip it over the barrel and position it for the cross pin , before it cools and shrinks .

Good luck ,
