Question Cannot remove Weiser deadbolt from old front door

Hello all. Thank you for taking the time to look at my issue and possibly provide any ideas.

Basically, I am having difficulty figuring out how to remove the deadbolt assembly from my large, thick front door. The apparent brand name is "Weiser." I have already removed any visible screws, and I have tried removing the assembly with the lock in both the lock and unlock positions. I've tried whacking it with a hammer, and I don't believe it is stuck due to paint. Do I need to perhaps remove the pin first?

Any ideas are most appreciated.

Here are some photos for reference, in case it helps:

Welcome to the forums! You'll probably need to remove the two allen head screws that are visible in pix #1.

A-ha! I definitely overlooked the fact that those were allen head screws. That did the trick - it came right out!

Thank you so much for your help!!
