It is very easy to replace the entire BNC...

thats correct.. it alll unscrews..  the  duck , the  lock nut, then  it pulls apart.
replace the   whole thing or scrounge a center pin  of another  bnc  or   tnc  or maybe evne an   N connector.

I suggest using one or two razor blades to push the pin out from the segmented sides.

 I miss read it.. not in the  duck  , its in the  radio..
and  razor blades  a good idea.
dental picks is you have them..

take two  large  paper clips,  bend out   straight, file the  ends down to a sharp  wedge shape.
use as tools to  slide in the  slots and  work the  pin out..

when i doubt,  make your own tools..
