    ok guys,i have a little problem.i can not get the clean out screw out of my hawken,there really isnt a problem with the gun other than i like to polish the touch hole in all my cap locks if possible.i chuck up a pipe cleaner in my drill and use a very fine polishing compound to polish inside the flash hole.i seem to get better ignition on the other cap locks that i have done this to.i have tried different penetrating oils to no avail.i am thinking of using a propane torch to try heat,what say? old semperfi

    It will work, just heat the metal around the screw not the screw itself but honestly I never saw a need to take one out.

    Try PB Blaster on it for 24 hours and then try to remove it. It is great stuff and has helped me get bolts and screws out I would have to cut out other wise. Once out, use some anti seize greese o the threads when you put it back in.
