removing SFIC core

Hello,
Have a question on the most ideal way for removing a SFIC core. Came across an auction for two 613 finish SFIC deadbolts. Exactly what I was needing. Already have been working with pinning and re-pinning SFIC cylinders but never had the need to deal with any locks without keys. Everything I have dealt with has been new or new without existing cores.
So, that brings me to the point of what is the best way for getting these two cores out of the locks. Have two new 613 finish cores ready to go.
Should have the needed bits for drilling out the core, but want to make sure I'm not heading down the path of more resistance by drilling.

So, if anybody can comment on what the easiest option would be for removing these SFIC cores.

F keyway if that makes any difference.

Thanks!

Re: removing SFIC core

we dont openly discuses destructive entry into locks as this is a hobby picking site.
I would recommend picking them to control or call a locksmith to do it.
also a picture of the locks showing them not in use will get you more responses in the future ;)

also welcome to the forum.

Re: removing SFIC core

Excellent points, thank you.
I am making a reminder to snap a pic of both locks tomorrow morning.
In the mean time, for the picking route, is there a recommended tool set to look into?

Re: removing SFIC core

I use a TOK wrench and a Hook pick. how much experience do you have picking? this is not a easy lock to pick.

Re: removing SFIC core

Hopefully the pic shows up in attachments.

You got me on the experience part as I have very little. Given that, I had figured bumping or drilling were the only other options. I have a bump key for this keyway but never had much luck with that method.

If you think picking would be the best or easier method, where do you recommend getting tools from?

Re: removing SFIC core

The locks pictured are not F keyway. They look like :BESTj: or :BESTk: to me
Xeo has a nice writeup about picking these: viewtopic.php?f=95&t=7540&start=15

Re: removing SFIC core

I'm just on a roll aren't I?
you're right on the keyway, I had meant to say I have F keyway cores, but I hadn't bothered to match up exactly what these were. Will take a look at that article in a bit.

Thanks

Re: removing SFIC core

it's all good man, We were all new to locksport once ;)

I would not use a bump key on them, Best Core are tip stopped so you can actual drive a bump key in to far and damage the lock making it harder to get out of the housing.

Re: removing SFIC core

thanks for the tip. Good thing I never messed around with bumping much on these!
