Cleaning out the trigger

Got lit up in the trigger and the screw on the bottom of the frame is stripped( yes you can lol at me)

is there any other ways to be able to clean out the trigger without having to take apart the frame?

or should i just try to drill the screw out?

Do you mean the hex opening in the bolt is rounded out? Since you said "drill it out", I think that's what you mean.

You can put a drop of loctite into the hex hole and put your allen key in the hole. The loctite may tighten up the fit enough to unscrew the bolt.

It's worked for me before, the hole just can't be too rounded out.

Let us know if it doesn't, I have other ideas that may work without damaging your marker. At the most it'll damage the bolt (which you'll want to replace anyway).

Another thing you can try......carefully I might add is to take out the rear grip frame screw so you can sort of jiggle the frame a bit. That "MIGHT" loosen the front screw enough to get it out by hand. Don't bend the frame though lol. Go easy. Of course......toss that screw and replace it as well
