Any tricks to removing the barrel assembly from the frame? It seems to be a pressure fit, but I sure can't seem to separate mine.

EDIT: Never mind. A hefty file and a hammer later, and I got it off.
Yeah, I had the same problem, my solution was to hold the grip, and tap the barrel with a rubber mallet, you seem to have come to a similar conclusion! ;)

I am doing one too... Is it pressure fit? I am leery of trying to pry it apart as it is pot metal and snapping the one pin that holds the two pieces together looms heavily on my mind! Is it only the pin in the lower section, or is there something holding it in the middle of the cylinder pin as well?

Yes, it's a pressure fit. And it's not just the small lower pin, but the thick central pin for the cylinder also is pressure fit in to the shotgun barrel.

What I did was I held the barrels in one hand, vertically so the barrels are pointed up. Then I stuck a long, beefy steel file down the shotgun barrel so it was butting up against the face of the central pin. Then all it took was a couple taps with a hammer on the butt of the file, and the frame popped out.
