It has been a while since I have been here, and I am having trouble with removing a trigger pin from my lee #4. No matter what I try, I cannot get the pin out that holds the trigger to the guard. Any suggestions that I can try would be greatly appreciated, and if I damage the pin getting it out, would a roll pin work as a substitute?

Stuck pins are usually the product of being staked. Check to see that it is uniform and round on both sides. If there's a divot or spot that looks like it was impacted with a punch, then its been staked.
This will undoubtedly need to be damaged to get out and I would opt not to. 

Sometimes these get stuck from expansion over time as well. Try using a punch and if you get resistance from one side, go to the other.

Three things can also be done:
1:Shoot it full of any penetrating thread oil. Then try punching it from BOTH directions.

2: Do the same as #1 but put it in the freezer before you punch it. About a half hour should do it.

3: Do the same as #1 but heat it up with a small propane torch. 30 seconds should do it.

I would let the penetrating oil sit overnight and really get into it. Apply liberally.

If these don't work you can drill it out with a slightly smaller diameter drill bit.

These usually just fall right out on my rifles. I often have to hold them in when installing the trigger guard.

This is all I've got. i tried searching for if these pins are staked and can't find anything that says so.
