Are people finding damage occurs taking the bolt out, or putting it back in? I think I've read more about thread damage on reinstalling but you make an interesting point that the damage could have occurred on the way out. Hmmm???

Again, I am guessing, because I have not seen one yet. Remember, it only takes one full thread to hold full strength, but count on having a 1/2 thread on the front for a leed thread of the bolt and 1/2 thread lead in the case. (not sure how short the bolt is yaknow), Leave at least two threads if in dought!, but you will probably have more than that to work with.
Hope this helps! Lets us know how this works if you do it? Again, why did you have to put the insert in from the inside?
