Changing Trigger

I want to change the trigger, but I can't figure out how to remove its screw. I haven't found this info anywhere. Any ideas?

You have to take the cover off of the trigger frame, and then a standard allen wrench will do the job to remove the one screw that holds the trigger in.

I got the trigger off the frame, the problem is the screw stays in the trigger. It won't come out.

I have two stock triggers, I'm swapping the black one for a gold one.

Secure the trigger, and use a hammer or the handle end of a screw driver to tap it out. Just be careful and don't pount it. It will come out.

Hellbentexan - There is only one company that ever produced aftermarket triggers for the NME. It was FBM. They made delrin triggers in multiple styles for multiple markers incudling the NME. I don't think they are in business anymore as all the links on their website are dead. I have a delrin Wave style trigger from them. I never ended up using it though as I got used to the stock NME trigger (didn't like it at first).

FBM is still in business but I think they aren't making the NME trigger any more. They still make other triggers and parts for other guns.

Thanks tjs, I will try that today! Can you send me pics of the FBM trigger? I may be interested in buying it from you.

Go to their website (http://www.fbmfactory.com/) and click on the link for triggers or any other item under custom accessories. You will get an error. It's been like that for a long time. I doubt they are still in business.

That's a good deal. I paid around $40 for mine brand new.

They're local to me. Trust me, they're in business, their store is still there and their field is still operating. They just aren't taking custom or anno orders. They'll sell whatever they have stocked.

Last FBM trigger bought by me. =D

I was looking at that and was so tempted to get one.
Let us know how you like it and if it is much better than the stock trigger
