I just tried yanking the pin out with a pair of needle-nose vise grips.

She aint coming out that way. BTW, that pin is hard metal.
Put a divot in the tip of the cheap vise trip pliers.

So, banged it back down as deep as I could get it.
Probably won't chew up the barrel nut during install.
Fully expect it to migrate back out and chew the nut some more on next removal.

Ask me about the Mason-Dixon FAL Collectors Association.
