Nt11 screws locked up

Just got in a brand new dye nt11 and went to clean and adjust the trigger just to find out all the parts are incredibly tight. I cannot pull the spool apart, the trigger screws are basically glued in place. Has anyone else had this problem? I tried all the methods in the sticky on the spool but no luck.

This is honestly my only complaint about the NT. Debating buying a 2nd NT11, I'm trying to see if they would send me one with the entire bolt assembly, disassembled. So I could put it together myself. I have no idea why they make the bolt near impossible to get apart w/o doing physical damage to the rod and/or plunger. It's like the have the Hulk there putting these things together. Pisses me off... /rant

I have realized that it's not a good idea to use an adjustable wrench when taking apart the spool (wings on the plunger and rod). I use fixed size wrenches. They seem to hold better and don't twist off if there is to much force on them. Once you do get the spool apart, I suggest putting a very small amount of lube on that small Orange oring. That will help with future tear downs.

I can't help you with the trigger screws unfortunately. I have only had to adjust the stock trigger on the NT once. It was a little sloppy. But just make sure you don't strip or cross thread those screws.

Hope this helps.

On the trigger screws, you can try to apply some heat to them with a torch. The heat will crack/melt the threadlocking glue. Whatever you do, go very easy with those screws because they strip VERY easily(please Dye no more so cheap screws on a thousand dollar gun) - and once they strip then you really have a problem.

chipp: god, small torch, small amounts of heat each time, ok?

May I suggest using a hair dryer instead of a torch?

Alright. The place i bought the marker from is trying to get them to send me a new bolt disassembled as the spool is literally stuck together and I don't wanna damage the bolt.

As far as the trigger idk. I may end up drilling them out. With heat one still got shredded up so I am not sure what to do. I'm about to send the marker in and see how much dye wants me to pay to fix a marker I haven't even shot.

I hac one trigger adjustment screw stripped in my attemt to remove it in order to install my new critical trigger. After consulting Dye the only way to remove it is by drilling a hole through it and use a screw extractor.

It took me arround 3 hours to do it
