hey, I'm gunsmith in Darlington SC. there is a cross pin called the firing pin retaining pin. its under the extractor which is held in with a pin through the top of the slide.

the retaining pin on spring loaded (inertia) firing pin is usually loose fit and shouldn't be hard to get out. pushing the firing pin forward to take spring tension off the retaining pin may aid in getting it out but like all things nothing is ever as easy as it should be. good luck , i have one driving me up the wall too.
