Dumb question! Phantom-compatible frames!? and advice on removing sear roll pin plz

I know that what makes a Phantom unique from other pump guns is the frame, which Mike Casady designates as the foundation of the whole gun and which has the serial # put on it

But I'm wondering if there are other frame adapter rails, frames, that fit the body and valvebody receivers or has matching spacing to the Phantom, and I guess, what sear to go with it ?

While I'm on this subject

Question #2 How the hell do you remove the CCI hammer sear roll pin? Bacci's video makes it look easy with his time-lapse magic
I'm struggling to get a good grip on the hammer to do it and the roll pin ain't moving even when I tap it with a nail that has had its sharp point trimmed

Thank you and I sorry if this question is dumb
The old Phantom prototype uses a Crosman frame with I guess a custom frame adapter rail
What else is there out there that can be put together

Thanks

Use the proper sized pin punch to remove the hammer sear roll pin instead of a sharpened nail.

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

I recently bought a roll pin punch set, worth every penny. It's a very big improvement over a flat punches on roll pins. Wish I'd had them sooner.

Thank you all for your helpful advices

I'll probably head down to Harbor Freight or Home Depot shortly to take care of the sear pin with an appropriate-sized punch or set

While you're there, pick up a small soft faced mallet. They make ones with replaceable tips of various materials. They're great for working on smaller parts you don't want to mar.

I have a rubber mallet, kind of standard-looking - is that good enough or do I need a specific kind

I suggested that since you were going to the tool store, it isn't mandatory. I was describing a much smaller striking tool with the replaceable faces an inch in diameter or less. Easier to control when working on smaller pieces than using a heavier claw or ball peen hammer.

To keep the thing from moving, I actually have put the sear in the vise with the hammer free above the vise. Works great.
