    How much mass has to move that 1/4"? Will there be any resistance other than momentum?

    About 3/8 " just momentum. Its a pin that is going to act as a stop.

    There are a surplus houses online that have solenoids which might do the trick. How much voltage and current will be available at your remote site to drive a solenoid?
