Need a good process to reinstall the hinge pin in a Diana air rifle.
drifts and the like don't work well and I don't want to risk scratching this pristine rifle.
several searches haven't helped.
Any suggestions will be welcomed

Don't know how much force you need...arbor press if a decent amount is required...drill press if not too much.

A vice will work too! You'll have to make a wood or leather "jaws" to protect the rifle.

Hinge pin? I thought all those little pins were loose fit held in with E-clips, but I guess I must be thinking of something else...
For press fit pins on something nice I still use a hammer, I'm just more careful, and if needed I use brass or plastic to protect it.

I forgot to add, use a brass or nylon drift and a BFH(Big Frickin Hammer)!

Thanks guys for all the suggestions. I got it together by moving the barrel section around and a punch with a few hammer taps.
Loaded a round and it fired as it should. SUCCESS!
