I have an old Crossman 140 air rifle. I am looking to clean it up and have a little fun with it. I am looking to remove the wood fore end on it to refinish. It has what looks like roll pins that come in from one side of the wood and go thru the "U" shaped metal arm that pumps the gun. They only come in from one side so they can't be punched out. The "U" shaped groove is about 1/4" or so. Any suggestions?? Thanks.

You could take careful measurements , drill through the wood and punch out the roll pins from the opposite side.
You might be better off masking the metal and refinishing the wood while in place.

Gently tap an easy out into the roll pin, twist a couple times and pull out. Or you can be cheap and screw a sheet metal screw into it and pull it out. Might have to use a new roll pin when you re assemble though.

I have never anyone that would ever remove them.

Check this site out and scroll down to look at the photo where the pump is still attached to the forearm after diassembly. If they do come out these guys will know how to do it.
