Help with Mini Buzzard screw removal

I am hoping someone has expirience with this.

I am going to get my Mini Buzzard re anno'ed. The pictures below show two fittings on the MB. I don't know how to remove them. One fitting holds the feedtube on, the other attaches part of trigger frame to the body. The fittings are steel and will be damaged by the process of re-anno. If someone can tell me how to removed these without destroying them I would be grateful







Both of these fittings have an Allen (hex) hole on the other side. It looks like a normal allen headed screw attaches to the stainless steel part. enough force should remove the allen headed screw, but I am pretty sure I would destroy the stainless steel parts.

Any ideas?

I wish I could tell you how to remove them, but I know that when I had my phantom done a few years back, and having been doing some home-anodizing for the past few months myself, the anodizer can actually cover any NON-ALUMINUM parts that can't be removed w/ any type of rubber cement or silicone prior to the anodizing process (I've done this in practice and it works - in fact this is the same process used for "splash" patterns) and this will protect the steel parts.

If not covered, the electrolysis process will literally dissolve the steel helicoils (spelling?) as you described. The one thing to note is that any covered area will not be anodized and therefore will not take any dye during the dyeing phase (obviously if any of it is exposed during regular assembly you would want to attempt to remove them if possible). And of course this is something you would want to talk to your anodizer about prior to shipping it to them.

Again, I know that doesn't really answer your question, but it is an option if you can't get it out. Hope it helps!

That may be the solution. TooSlow4Me (Tonsixers) confirmed that can be done, and that it may fail. If it fails, and the parts corrode I guess worse case it goes back to "The Man" for repair and tune up.

Not ideal but at least there is a back up.

This is true... and HE runs the risk as well because the dissolved steel in his anodizing bath pollutes his bath. I've seen his work, so I'm sure he's extremely experience w/ this technique, and you probably wouldn't have any worries He's probably just being up front w/ you on the potential problems... which is actually very commendable... good luck man! Looking forward to seeing pics when it's done

Here is what I got from Demonio:

"They are Sanchez inserts. There probably some spanner tool that can be used. It's regular threaded to. Hopefully the previous owner didn't use loctite."

Hope that helps.
