Getting Quest anno'd, anything I should be careful about?

I'm getting my quest anno'd, and wanted to check to see if there is anything I should be careful in doing when I disassemble it for the anno. It seems pretty straightforward to dissassemble, my only real concern are the body plugs, do I need to do anything to take them out and or put them back in when anno is done? I'm assuming locktight will be need when putting them back in to help avoid leaks. Anything else?

Thanks!

You may need to heat them for removal. Red locktite them back in and let it sit for 24 hours before use. Be gentle when removing the feedneck, most are locktited in as well.

What's the best way to heat them, other than a heat gun? I've use a blow torch on other stuff and it can change the color of the anno sometimes, would that be problem if it is getting re-annoed?

To much direct hear can burn off the pigment from previous ano jobs. I honestly am not 100% sure if it would affect another ano, I would assume it would not, but just to be safe I would suggest a hair drier or using a butane lighter sparingly.

Be VERY careful with those body plugs.

I used a blow torch and allens and stripped 2 out of 4, making my body useless.

Myself and two others have had trouble with leaks out of those body plugs after ano, make sure you are sending your gun into someone who uses quality stuff and if they offer disassembly I would leave it up to them to do it, paying the extra cash. (That way its their fault if something happens lol)

make sure everything is clean before shipping. Some lube will create a film(protective layer) from the acid and your anno will look like crap.

*Very true, although in all honestly any self respecting anodize will clean the marker before stripping and re-anodizing. Parts may be boiled for short periods of time to help remove the everyday grime, but do not cool them to quickly.

I've always heard that using boiling water will make the loctite looser...I don't know the truth behind it.

But boiling water is only about 212 degrees....so it shouldn't harm the ano.

i used a hair dryer on max heat setting to remove my locktited feedneck. It did no damage to the existing anno and although it was a pain in the ***, I feel its the best way.
