    I'm trying to install a G conversion decocker but I can't get the roll pins out of the old safety. The pins move just enough for the punch to go in the channel but won't budge further. I've tried from both directions and broken 2 punches and still they haven't moved. Am I missing something? Anybody done this and have any tips?

    Yeah I've watched that video. He already has the roll pins removed when he starts. I've watched several videos on it and I'm good with the overall process I just can't get the pins to move to start the process.

    Not sure if you have seen this one, should not take much effort, is your pistol NIB or second hand?

    It's not a new pistol but I am the original owner. It's just sits in the safe mostly, never been carried. I've got some more punches ordered and I'll give it another go this weekend. Maybe I need a bigger hammer. ;)

    Are you using a roll pin punch?

    Yes. Finally got them out. Problem was every video I found said use a 1/16 (.0625in) punch. Found out that Beretta specifies a 1.55mm (.061in) punch. Couldn't find a 1.55 so I stuck a 1/16 punch in a drill, wrapped a piece of sandpaper around it and spun it for a few seconds to reduce it a little. They came right out then.
