I have a Columbus Muscle fork and need to move/remove the plug in the carbon steerer. I unscrewed everything but it does not want to release. Any suggestions before I start banging on it?

Actually banging on it is what you need to do. I had a Muscle and the way the Columbus expander plug works, it friction fits. Unscrew the bolt although not all the way out, tap it with a plastic or rubber mallet and it will come loose.
