The pins aren't screwed in, they fit by pressure. You will need to get something smaller than the diameter of the pin and something heavy to hammer it out with. I just use the end of an allen wrench and anything top-heavy to hit it.

You don't need to remove the front pin to remove the front portion if this is the G&G GR16 with the metal upper. Take the pin out as far as it goes (to where the spring lock triggers and keeps it in place so you don't lose it) after that just slide the upper receiver and front end forward and the entire segment should come right off.

I'm pretty sure that's a spring. You need a reaalllllyyyy tiny screw driver to push back the spring and pin that locks the receiver pin in place. Then slowly and carefully hammer it out. Be careful not to break the tabs as it is a plastic body.
