...I have the same IMA receiver. The pivot pin is part of the receiver casting. The retention slot in the IMA pin is cut all the way around. The button is probably hanging up on the sharp edge of the retention groove in the pin.
Unlike the original German receiver pin, the barrel shroud installed on an IMA receiver will come off the pin at ANY point after the button is pushed. The original German receiver allows removal of the shroud after pushing the button ONLY when the shroud is fully "pivoted open".
With the receiver/shroud "closed", I would insert a strong wooden dowel into the barrel shroud up to the receiver, and, while holding the button down, tappetty-tap on the dowel, knocking the receiver off the shroud.
Best of luck...Phil
