What is there to "PRESS OUT" Its a one piece casting and a brand new cylinder isn't too expensive ! About $250.00

The early models have a plating composition that is too hard too hone with conventional methods (ball hones, aluminum oxide stones, etc) . You need a multi-shoe diamond hone setup to work on these barrels. These early barrels tend to show odd wear near the top of the stroke, so make sure you put a dial bore guage on the cylinder to check it for taper and out of round.

Once these barrels show significant taper you are better off just buying a new barrel unless you have easy access to the diamond honing equipment.
