I have sized my own bands on many watches. but this oris aquis is something else, its like the the pins are soldered in. I started with taps, but eventually i got big hammer hit with some might and my push tool would bend but the band pin doesn't budge. I start hit the round side of the pin (not the screw looking side) but than i turned over and tried other size.. tried other links. damn thing will not come out. what am i missing here?

Those are screws. Get a small flat-head screwdriver. They use loctite on the threads so be very careful not to strip the heads. Your hammering may have loosened them up a bit, or it may have buggered them.

Oris use screws like Dave said. Make sure the driver you use is a good fit in the slot of the screw head and hope that all the bashing hasn’t damaged anything. If they still won’t move Oris are rather generous with the thread lock and it’s not unknown to have to use some heat.

IIRC, the screws used in the bracelet are 1,5mm. If you use a screwdriver for Rolex (1,6mm) bracelets it will be too big.
