Enfield Revolver Disassembly?

Never mind, I got it out. I rigged up a jig in a vice and it only took a small amount of pressure to pop out.

Hi,

I recently acquired an Enfield No2 MK1 revolver that needs a good cleaning. I had no problem with full disassembly, except that I can't get the hinge pin out(I think that's what it's called, the internally threaded bushing inside the hinge). It Should simply push out, but I guess after being in there for 80 years it wants to stay put. I tried penetrating oil (WD40) and gently tapping it out with a punch, but I don't want to go at it too hard.
Any tricks I should try? Putting it in the freezer maybe?
I'd like to get it out if I can. There's a whole lotta gunk in there..

Thanks, Steve
