Pump Arm Autotrigger Bolt

Hey guys,

I recently received my A/T kit and I'm super excited about it. It looked like there was a small bolt to fill the hole in the pump rod. I tried to use an allen wrench to unscrew that plug but the plug has stripped.

What should I do?

If you have a pair of needle nose clamping pliers you might be able to get it out with that if it has a head that protrudes out of the hole.

You can try and super glue the allen key into it if you are scared of drilling it out.

How would I go about doing this? I'm handy but I've never attempted anything like this.

Unfortunately, there's nothing that actually protrudes from the hole. :/

I tried this with some jb weld but I think the hole is just too small to get any real sticking power.

I'd try and jb weld it and just jam an allen in it that fits snug. Maybe sacrifice a metric key for it.

I have had good luck either using the next size up Allen key and forcing it into stripped holes or using a slightly larger Torx bit to remove stripped set screws or bolts like that. You may want to use some heat, like heat it up with a lighter or a blow torch if you have one. Heat can be a tremendous help.

Also, make sure the Allen wrench your using isn't rounded off, if it is grind it back some until it is good and sharp on all corners. I have seen so many people using round Allen keys and wonder why they strip everything out.

we use Bondhus hex keys for best results.The gold or silver coating really works.

Yes torx keys are the last chance before you have to drill.

when you grind hex keys back don't get them hot even hot to the touch. keep a cup of water on hand to dip them in while grinding them.


Drilling a screw out will cost more than a new part or more than a good set of hex keys.( having a machine shop do it)


We usually don't drill out rods. we cut them up for cocking rods,beaver tail rods or secondary rods.

May also be worth trying out a certain size metric Allen key that is close to the same size. But like already mentioned, if it's gonna take much to fix it may be more worthwhile to just buy a new rod.

Just curious, did you heat up the screw to break free any loctite that may have been applied to the screw? It may also give you that little extra slop in the hole you need to get the screw out.

You can also try to use a ball end hex key. Put it in at an angle and rotate the key around. Don't try to spin it like you would a normal wrench, you want to use the off center ball to grip and give you torque. Craftsman makes diamond impregnated hex keys that are fantastic for grip.
