I'm restoring an Ithaca M66. Not in bad shape, but I cannot get the firing pin out.

The firing pin retainer pin is out and the firing pin moves, but it simply will not come out.

I'm going to let penetrating oil work on it a bit, but it seems like something is blocking it as if the firing pin retainer pin was there, but it isn't I can see the firing pin move just fine through the hole it was once in.

Any ideas?

Since it moves but doesn't come out early, I suspect the rear end of the FP is expanded/battered from the many hammer falls it received over the past 48-odd years

Have you tried to drift it out via a thin pin punch through the FP hole in the breech face ?
