The steel inserts IIRC are where the thumbscrews screw in.

Some of the screw threads have stainless steel inserts. I am sure that mike at cci will remove them for you.

Yes. There are 2 stainless steel inserts in the body and one insert in the valve body. If you tear the marker down and look at the threads where the thumbscrews and the stock class feed goes (if you have a removable feed) you will see the inserts. To remove them, you will most likely damage them, so new ones are needed. They are available here. Have Blue is a member here on MCB and runs ASP. You will need a straight fluted screw extractor that looks like these.
I put the body in a pot of boiling water for about 30 seconds to 1 minute to loosen up the loctite. Then tap the extractor into the insert and unscrew it. Lefty loosey, righty tighty. Nothing special. The same goes for the valve body. Be careful with the parts because they will get pretty warm in the boiling water. But I prefer this method to hitting the metal with a lighter or mini torch or the like.
After the ano job is done and you picked up more inserts, put some loctite on the new ones and thread them into place. Make sure you pay attention to which sized insert goes where. There are 2 different sizes.
If you want to get the trigger frame anodized too, full tear down is necessary. All the pins need removed.
It is really a great way to get to know your new baby. I enjoyed every bit of the process. I just got mine back within the past couple of weeks.
