Kingman Hammer bolt question

I need to turn the velocity on my Hammer down. I know I need to turn the "X" counter clock wise. Except there's no movement. I don't want to use excess force and bend some brass. Might the threading be gummed or tarnished stuck?

Is there something I can spary/squirt down in there that won't harm the bolt?

Why don't you just take it apart and look at it close up? Without the hammer spring pushing on it it should be really really easy to turn.

My Hammer's velocity adjuster turns very easy. I would agree with Jaan, open that thing up, clean and relube.

I've already opened it up. I already am holding the bolt in my hand. I'm trying to get it to move. That's the problem. No Movement. What I"m asking is, how do I get it to move, when it won't. I can't take it any more apart than it already is.

I'll look at my bolt and take a pic. Maybe your bolt is not adjustable.

If you're sure you have a stock adjustable bolt, then try small things first. Some penetrating oil, or WD-40. If that doesn't work, the some gentle heat things like that.

Ok it's been awhile since I even looked at this marker....

It appears that this was a velocity adjustable bolt. There appears to be a ding on the inner part of the bolt.

Question...I think I know the answer...but I"ll ask anyway...Will a Traccer bolt fit in my Hammer?

Nope, sorry, doesn't quite fit. Tried it a little while back. Though I'll double check tomorrow just to be sure.

I'm guessing that someone has tightened the thumbscrews for the pump arm too tightly at one point and damaged the threading on the velocity adjuster. Not sure of a way to get it out other than by force or carefully drilling out the damaged threads through the screw holes in the bolt.

As for fitting a traccer bolt on the hammer, it will not simply swap in. The easiest way to do a swap would be to use both traccer bolt and striker. You will need to remove the power tube from the striker, but it whould work fine.
