A punch, two blocks of 2x4 and and a hammer.

Strip the gun down to the gripframe, put the gripframe flat onto the 2x4's together, with a gap for the pin to go down into. Make sure you're hitting the side WITHOUT the splines.

I'll help you bro. First lay the gun down on a towel with the side facing up that has the foregrip tray door. Then get a piece of masking tape that is at least 2" wide. Poke a hole in it with a pencil. Then place the tape on the gun so the hole in the tape lines up with the pin. Now you will need a punch and a hammer. I know this sounds crazy but this is what you need. Take your time and take nice aimed shots on the punch making sure it is centered with the pin. If you should miss or hit the side of the punch, the tape should protect the anno. Good luck!

If it's still not working, try to use some heat on the pin/frame. A hairdryer works perfectly.

Do I hit from the gauge side or the non gauge side?

Take a look at the trigger pin on both sides. One side will be a little zig-zaggy, the other will be round. the side you want to hit with the punch is the side without the zig-zags.

It could go either way, honestly. Mine was a complete ***** to remove. I actually did it wrong and bent up my trigger frame, had to buy a new one from Boss.

I've read on here about people who didn't have to hit that hard at all, and others that had to pound the hell out of the pin. If it's really not moving, try heating the area with a hairdryer for a bit and then try again.

I'd also recommend buying an Element removable trigger pin so you never have to hit your Axe with a hammer again. Best $10 I ever spent.

On mine I was able to punch it past the zig zag and then hooked on with vice-grips

Yep, just two holes. The allen key slot is down deep inside the threaded half, i think.
