    Call Kreighoff at 1-610-847-5173. Get the right tool for the job. fly is a jerk, a real comedian.

    I'm not kidding here, but this is "fer real" 'cause I care about scratches and stuff. Each time I eat at a Chinese food resturant, I ask for extra chopsticks, you know, the wooden throw away kind. Then I keep the extra ones in the gun tool box. I use those for punches; sometimes I have to whittle the chopstick, but it generally works...just pound with a plastic or brass hammer. Wood won't mar the bluing, at least this soft wood. But use common sense, maybe the Krieghoff tool is the only one that won't tear stuff up, maybe not.

    Not to rile anybody up, but I use a small (2d?) finish nail, point ground down and shaped to fit. [wink]

    Go to a good hardware store and look for a small DRIFT PUNCH and if possible take the Bbl with you to check for proper fit. A pointed punch will keep you inside the steel roll pin but not so much as to expand it. When punching it out don't take it out all the way, just enough for the rib to be loose, if you are replacing the hangar, on the underside of the hanger ther is a special pin to keep the hangar centered, don't lose it, it will fall out when you move the hangar forward, so be over a piece of cloth to catch it and it won't bounce
    and be hard to find. On Kreighoff the "0" hangar is the high shooter, the #4 is the low shooter, the lower the number the higher it shoots.

    On the KX-5 adj.rib the knurled knob is height adjustment.

    Strunk, I could have said use a pinhead, but you might have taken that wrong too! It was a joke, take a deep breath.
