The ones I took apart have never needed to be pressed.
After removing the pins and the screw, they slide out by hand.

To tighten the headspace, you turn the shoulder of the barrel back so that the barrel moves further back into the receiver.
Then you have to drill new holes and install pins in a different location.

Threads make a stronger/better junction than a slip-fit and pins.
That's why I thread the receiver and barrel together like a real rifle.
