Removing Phantom Thread Inserts

Anyone have any tips on removing the threaded inserts from a Phantom body and BBA without trashing the body/BBA's threads?

I am sending my Phantom to Bazooka Boy and need to remove these inserts before ano.

Any tips are greatly appreciated!

Inferno, the inserts being spoken of aren't the barrel inserts - they're the stainless threaded inserts installed into the breech.

LudavicoSoldier, use a heat gun on the insert to loosen the loctite. Then, tap in a straight fluted (not a spiral type) broken screw extractor and use that to unscrew the insert and remove it from the body. If you tapped the extractor in lightly, you can probably re-use the insert (otherwise, I sell them on my site).

Great! I'll pick up a screw extractor and give it a go. I'll be picking up a new set of inserts from you instead of trying to re-use the old ones. They are the 10/32 ones, correct?

No, the breech gets the 8-32 inserts - the 10-32 insert is used on the valve body (big thumbscrew in back, little thumbscrew in front).
