    Having an absolute bitch of a time getting the screws out.

    So much trouble that I am starting to booger the heads.

    Before I take it to Krieghoff, any solutions or anyone else have this difficulty?


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    heat them with a paint stripper

    sometimes - intentionally or unintentionally- there is hardened gunk on them

    Using the right driver bit is cardinal, and what was said about heat and striking the screw. Call Braxton in Ottsville and ask him to send you some new screws.

    Great folk in Pa.

    I will see Chris Maest at the PA shoot if he is there and get new screws from him.

    Thanks for the tip!!

    Yep.... we PA folk aren't too bad.

    There probably is a little dab of Loc-Tite on the screws giving you a problem.

    Get a screw driver bit that fits the slot. Chuck it in a drill press. Put the barrel in the drill press vice. Lower the bit using the drill press handle. Make sure the barrel is supported under the screw. Turn the drill press chuck by hand to back the screw out. Keep downward pressure on the screw using the drill press handle when turning the screw out. HMB

    If the head is bunged up, a little valve grinding compound in the slot may help. Jeff

    You can also use a soldering iron to heat the screw.
