    Hello, I’ve ran into an issue while building a lower. When I was driving in the bolt release pin, I ran into a wall and noticed the hex wrench I’d stuck in there to line everything up had fallen out. I figured there was some sort of obstruction due to a misalignment, so I tried to drive it out from the other side with a punch. In doing so, I made the situation even worse. The punch has somehow wedged itself into the channel and against the receiver, and now it’s stuck. I’ve attached a picture for reference. Please help 🙁

    Take another punch and punch it? Your finish might or might not take a bit of wear but it’s better than having a stuck punch.

    Vice grips on the punch and hammer them lightly to loosen it?

    Hammer the pin through and knock out the punch?

    Maybe a soak in oil beforehand will help.

    Does the bolt catch pivot? If so this can just be left in.

    On a more serious note grab a cut off wheel and cut the handle of the punch off.

    Also never give more than two ugga duggas while driving a steel punch into a your lower.
