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.
