The trigger rides between two tapers. The way to adjust the side movement is to adjust them closer or further apart. If they get too close they Squeeze the trigger. Just loosen them a bit.
Another nice thing is you can take the trigger all the way out very easily if it gets a hit. Take a look at the manual if you're interested.

Happy it was consist and shot great - it was new so maybe just setting in a little - so great - IF...it gets shot and starts to stick then you may want to ...take the set screw out and clean it...

one thing though jack that i jsut remembered, was that it had a terrible first shot drop off. i could shoot once and it be really slow, thent he rest were fine unless i didnt keep shooting..for example id start shooting, stop for 2-3 seconds to look around or somehting then when i shot again the first shot was really low. i dont knwo if its just because its not broken in or if i have to adjust the settings or somehting of the sort.

u might have to adjust your LPR and dwell setting until the marker gets more broken in to prevent that.

np, once u get around 15-20 cases through the marker you should be able to drop those settings down

as far as the trigger sticking this is what i have noticed. the 2 pics that keep it in place from the sides have a very large margin of where they can be set. if you set them just barely loose enough for the trigger to move, they slowly creep in and pinch the trigger, so back it out a 1/4 turn. if it still happens (this is what i have found will help NOT what jack advises so take it with a grain of salt) take a tiny bit of Teflon tape and do 1 wrap on each screw, then adjust to preference and that should stop the creep on the pins. at first i thought about lock tight but different companies make different stuff so why risk getting them totally stuck? tiny bit of Teflon should do the trick, thats the first thing im doing for my friends when there invasions arrive in a few days.

Trigger rides on two tapers. If you back it out to where the it has any play it can't stick - just can't.
The reason triggers start to stick is they are set to where they just have enough space to move freely - so they have almost no sideways slop - but then dirt or paint gets in there and then they stick.
The trigger can be removed with taking the gun apart and cleaned - or just loosen the trigger up until you have the time and inclination to clean it.

First what is being said is that the screws creep and that makes them stick. I think it's the dirt and paint getting in there when the are set quite tight.
Second, I have no problem with putting Teflon tape on the screws instead of locktite and if you use locktite use low hold - but if you back the screw out because trigger got sticky it won't move much, so you don't "need" locktite or Teflon tape. There is very little surface area toughing on the trigger. The reason to use either is because you want a trigger set right at the limits -so you have almost no side play.

If you turn the LPR all the way up it will shoot over 400 - so something is too low, so it's either the LPR - but probably not - as if you don't have shoot down it's usually high enough or the dwell is too low - so set to 14 and try it again.

In is up right? ;-)

Usually better to call - this type of thing can take 5 postings over 3 days or 2 minutes on the phone.
