Removing the Shot Valve inserts
These instructions apply to both Models
"C/CS" and "D/DS".
The metal inserts are recommended for lead shot;
the plastic inserts are recommended for steel shot
- One good way to do this is to use a vice.
Note: You may have to close the shot-cavity partially
to get at the punch-out hole.
(a) you want to properly support the bar
(b) you want a wide enough space to allow the insert to be
pushed out of the shot valve but, without
driving the shot-valve downwards, too.
Caution: Driving the shot-valve downwards will break the lock-ring
that holds the shot-valve to the bar body.
- To remove a metal insert:
insert a punch tool in the punch-out hole and punch out insert
(a nail will also work but is not recommended)
- To remove a plastic insert:
apply finger pressure
