Hammer velocity adjustment screw wont move; not nelson?

I cannot get the internal set screw to move at all. Brute force has not worked so far. Any ideas how to get it unstuck? Dont want to destroy the finish on the outside...

said this was a nelson hammer kit; confirmed (http://www.baccipaintball.com/parts/.../aut1245.html#)

Find the longest screw you can find that fits the side, or use a strapwrench and a long allen key.

Or a long allen key, vice grips with a thick piece of leather/rubber between the IVG and the vicegrips.

^ pretty much doing this; im using a 1/4 drive impact drill with the ivg mounted in the gun.

It looks like someone may have glued it??? is this glue?!

has it always been locked up...looks like it was cross thread or the o-ring is seizing it up.
try mounting it in the gun for leverage, get a long allen wrench and use an extender(closed end wrench or some type of handle to better apply force) and work it loose.

worse comes to worst, i might sell you the one i have.

good luck
