Default How to remove Colt 6920 front sling side mount?

The Colt front sling side mount comes installed standard on the left side. I want to switch it over to the right side (I'm a lefty). It looks like you simply remove the roll pins and switch the mount to the other side. I tried tapping out each roll pin but they don't seem to want to budge. Is there a better way?

Not as hard as you think. It does require a bit of patience and a little bit of trial-and-error. After removing & installing about a half-dozen, I finally got it down to almost nothing in terms of time/effort.

Thanks to all of you who responded. The pins went on easier then they came out. One thing for sure, these sling mounts won't come off by accident! Thanks again.
