PMI-I Disassembly

Is it any different than disassembling a PGP?
I am having difficulty knocking the 12gram face seal + brass sleeve out of the back.

12 gram + dowel + hammer = No movement

If it's a true PMI-1, then it's the same as a PGP. Sometime they're pretty snug. If you've taken everything out the way you're suppose to, hammer away.

heat it up with a hair drier where valve body sits-should come out
with a few taps with the hammer then.

I think your 12 gr is stuck on the threaded insert. A 1/2" dowel all the way should help you.

FYI: That threaded insert is called a nutsert. If you hammer the 12 gram too far, you'll knock it out and then you'll need a nutsert tool.....or send it to someone who has one and nice low-rise nutserts perfect for brass markers *cough cough*me* cough*

So don't knock it too far. What lexiones is saying is true...make sure your 12 gram isn't ramping against your nutsert. You should have clearance before it drops out...but it's possible.

I will try the dryer technique. I think a hairdryer may give it uneven amounts of heat.
I'll probably put it into the dryer with my other laundry.

Do you'all think the oven will be to hot?

I wouldn't do dryer or oven. It's brass, it can easily get dinged or tweeked. WALZ knows what he's talking about. A hair dryer will heat stuff just enough to let it slide easier. You're not trying to take the tubes apart, just make things move.

just fyi, a 12g won't push the chamber plug all the way out. It'll only move it a bit then the 12g bottoms out on the permanent sleeve in the gun. In an ideal world the 12g would pop it loose enough and it would just fall out. Sometimes there's just too much crud in there and you may need to pull the 12g back out and use a thin rod to push the chamber plug the rest of the way out. 1/4" or so is a good size but you need to make sure it makes it into the front of the chamber plug (where the tip of the 12g would sit) or you can mess up the chamber plug.

Note: The back end of a redz swab is also a great tool for this job IIRC
