I'm new to the forum and posted the last question in wrong forum, anyway my problem is with a browning bl22 I just bought for my grandson someday, the finish is scarred and scratched pretty badly and i was going to try to refinish it myself my only problem is with the barrell band on the front forearm it has a pin in it and i wondered if i drive it out can i reuse the same in to put it back together? and also one sight said to drive it out from right to left or vice-versa does it really matter, andwhich side is rightas you look down barrell as if to shoot?

If the pin is tapered it will only come out one way. I can't say which way that is. You could reuse the pin without any problems. You might add a touch of red loctite to keep it in place. Try using a brass or nylon drift so you don't scar the pin.
