I had the same problem with my TL-X. The best solution is to get some marker oil and put one drop into the hole where the bolt knob goes into the bolt. Then just pull out the knob with ease.

No because you cant do that since the acs is made out of delrin and when you put oil on it swells up. I have heard plenty stories of that happining

Not sure where the swelling stories are coming from with delrin. I use delrin daily at work and have never seen it swell from oil. I have oiled my delrin ACS bolt in my 05 electra and have had no issues. Delrin is also used in industrial bearings and they get oiled. If it were to swell the shaft wouldnt spin in the bearing. Just my 2 cents worth. Spyder05guy

I think that the paintball oil is different from what u use because i know that some oil works with delrin the commercial stuff made for it, not wd-40 or lps

I have never heard of any issues with delrin swelling with marker oil. I guess you'll just have to try and pull it out by yourslef, or like ooglieboogliebob said, get your dad to do it. :p

well the only way to get it out is to pull like hell...the first time i did..i wra[ed a dish towel arounds it so as not to scratch, and then pried it up with a screw driver....brute force is the othy thing that works...

the top knob will come out if you pull hard enough, had the same problem with my pilot, i used a pair of pliers to grab it and pulled straight out

flathead screwdrived and use it as a lever, putting the head under the knob then line the screwdriver up along the top of the gun and press down on the handle POP. comes right out

put a lubrecant in it and then put in "quick ease" so u can pull it out whenever without any force really.
