A you tube video that shows the retainer pin you need to drive out to remove the firing pin. Its fairly easy to drive the retainer pin out.
Like GiockGuy24 mentioned, the retainer pin position is different.
Your AK cleaning kit should have a drift pin tool to drive out the retainer.
I happen to have a few polytech parts spare pins that should fit if you pin is flat in the rear. They are 84 mm long and 4 mm wide. A free floating pin like these should fit in a spring loaded bolt without the spring, but a spring loaded pin with the bulge at the rear base will not fit in a free floating bolt. Does your pin have a bulge at the rear like in the picture below? Or flat like the picture below it? Polytech parts only has these two types on their site.
I used to have some of the bulged rear pins and want to think they were just as long as the flat ones.
