Default Knife repair question

Probably pretty simple for most of yíall but Iím wanting to fix this kitchen knife that my wife likes. All thatís really wrong is the scales are a bit loose. Is the fix as simple as knocking the pins out, glue, and hammering the pins back in?

Never done it, but I imagine you could *possibly* knock the pins out, ensure the scales are flat, if not, plane them. Once that's done, if those pins won't work, you could purchase some new pins of a bigger size, bore them out, and epoxy the scales and pins in.

Anyone else feel free to jump in...

EDIT: Could be a good time to make some new knife scales.

Might have to drill those out as they are headed on both sides most times and slide into each other and expand.
