QD bolt stuck to bolt shaft

I have the proficiency engine with a quick disconnect bolt. The bolt will not slide off of the bolt shaft. Any ideas on how to get it off without taking a hammer to it?

thats kinda of the way they are if you take a hammer to it you risk breaking the tip off then your buying a new ram if blast still has them. my suggestion dont take it off, in all my years i have only seen 2 where the bolt head slips off with ease

Keep the ram mostly retracted. With the shaft opening on the bolt pointed down give the bolt a tap against a solid surface like a work bench.

When the bolt is removed use a small wire wheel on a Dremel and gently do a quick tap on the area that snaps onto the ram shaft. The parts were machined with very close dimensions so that they would be tight from the factory and then could loosen up with wear. The wire wheel is just speeding up the wear in process.
