Trigger's actuation troubleshoot

Hey guys. Earlier today I was fiddling around with my trigger till then I realized I couldn't hear the switch sound (was attempting to adjust trigger to personal preference)..I tried to reconfigure the trigger's position to its original state but when I clicked, nothing happened [eyes off during this time to check].

Took off the frame and everything and noticed that the blue loctite were pretty much stripped out on the adjustment screws--due to all that screwing in and out. Took a closer look, and I saw the little magnetic thing stuck on the screw. From there, I had NO idea of what purpose that magnet had on the gun or how it fell off. Was that thing suppose to be glued somewhere specifically in/on the frame? Are the magnets the cause of the gun not activating the switch?

Please help.

the magnet is supposed to be there. It is what activates the trigger motion sensor. From your post it sounds like you think that the mini has a micro switch like most guns. It actually does not. Like i said before it uses a sensor to tell when the trigger moves. I had this same problem tho. Try adjusting the activation screw (top screw closest to barrel) a little ways out. It turned out that mine was too far in. Don't panic tho, its just a minor trigger adjustment and nothing is wrong with your mini.

if it fell off you need to glue it back on.

I didn't really take a close look at where the magnet was housed, so I have no idea where it came from or where it was glued on.

If you look closely at the following pic, youll see the magnet mounted to the tip of the top most screw in the trigger body:

yeah glue it to the front one and let it sit over night. it seems to be very common. when adjusting your trigger the trigger activates when the magnet is a certain distance away from the sensor and thats how you adjust when the gun will fire. the other screws if you dont get it are pre and post travel
