The bolt would deform the aluminum otherwise. Mags are high pressure machines, and there is considerable force going on during the operation.

I read that Tuna will remove it for you. Someone on AO sent their SFL to him before anno to have it done.

I was hoping some would tell me how to remove it. I have a machine shop, but would like to know how it's properly done.

Contact Tuna or Proteam or AGD. I'm sure one would be able to help you out. I have never tried taking the clip out of my Micromags/ULEs, so I cannot help you out from experience.

ULE's are easy, since there held in with a circle clip, Micromags appear to be pressed in.

I read that some anodizers could mask it, making removal not nessecary. Need to contact some to see if that's true.

If it's a powerfeed micro, we have a trick we use that possibly can work, but it is potentially somewhat invasive. If it's a vertical feed the best thing to do is to advise your anodizer that there is a stainless insert and ask him if he will be able to mask it. Some anodizers have an issue putting ANYTHING steel in their tanks, some will simply mask and go. Keep in mind that the insert may potentially retain acid in the etching process and they'll have to be careful about leaching.

Thanks Tracy. It's a powerfeed. Gen 3 I believe.
