    Its not a big job but to hard to explain in a email for me, a gunsmith should be able to do it in minutes should not be to expensive mate Shuggie

    its very easy job twist and turn job , but as others say find your local smith and get him to do it while you wait save postage and lean a new skill

    This tool makes it very easy, much more so than a small coin...

    Simply hook the shroud on the first loop of your boot/shoe lace pull and turn off the bolt shroud assembly holding the main bolt body no tools required plenty posts on YouTube tried and tested way of stripping remmy bolts handy field tip

    If you read what the OP says his firing pin appears to be broken, not the simple twist and turn job!
    The use of a firing pin spring compressing tool is needed, take it to a reputable smith or buy the tool and replacement pin from Brownells.

    Following on from MARCBOs usefull links, it could quite possibly be cheaper and quicker to order the tool and pin from Brownells in the USA rether then getting it done here.

    Very likely OK getting the tool....but as a firing pin is a component part of a firearm...likely as not Brownells may be unable to export it directly to an 'end user' Yes/No? ATB
