    Default gold coin removal

    what's the best way to remove it from the riser? My brother in law said he could bead blast the rise of my Cheetah so I could do a custom job on it. I've just gotta strip it down(VEM's,coin,etc). What's my best option. I don't want to ruin things in the process.

    It is probably glued in but who knows what kind of glue. Maybe heat it up with a hair drier and gently pry on it?

    Maybe a call to Martin or ask the powder coaters on here?

    My best advice would be to use a hair dryer and a small screw driver and work very slowly going around the edge as you warm it up. Take your time and work slow and you should be able to get it off with little to no damage. Keep in mind the coin is very soft metal and will discolor if you use too much heat.

    I figured it was a soft metal or coated plastic. Either way a pencil torch is a no no. I've got 3M spray adhesive and rubber cement to re-attach when it's done. Either one should do th trick I would think. There's the Martin american flag emblem to that needs to come off. That might be tricky. I'll use the hair dryer on that,too. I definitely want to keep the flag emblem. I adds character to the bow.

    My coin fell out and it looked like just a dab of glue in the middle of it holding it in. I have to head into work, but tomorrow I can put up a photo if you need to see it.

    use a dropper and then drip some fingernail polish remover around the coin and the slight gap of the riser.the remover will eat the glue and not the coin

    Default Makes no difference, but,

    I believe that a "state quarter" will fit nicely in the hole once the medallion is removed.

    Been wanting to do that for better than a year, but it's far easier to sit here and drink another rum than actually get up and do something.

    Best of luck to you.
