eXTCy trigger pre-travel screw stuck?

Hey!

Trying to adjust the pre-travel screw on my new gun, I have tried with quite a lot of force to loosen or tighten it, but it just won't budge for some reason. Like I said, the gun is brand new, so I'm not sure why. Anyone else run into this problem?

Thanks!
-Nolam

P.S. The pre-travel is on the bottom of the trigger guard

Never got it, it was really in there., Ex-GOG tech at my paintball store told me the aluminum and stainless steel gunk up and get stuck sometimes or something. He said he could do it or I could RMA for free, so I'm RMA'ing. Thanks anyways!

yeah mine was SUPER stiff. squirted a tin bit of wd40 into the hole, let it penetrate, and go at it again. rinse repeat. takes a bit. pretty sure i stripped mine, but it was right when i got it perfectly adjusted so im not too worried

I have threatened numerous times to drive out to PA and confiscate every bottle of red loc-tite that GOG owns. It's not a problem on EVERY gun, but they have definitely had at least one person there assembling guns who doesn't seem to have a clue about which grade of loc-tite to use and where.

If you have a soldering iron, you can try heating it up and sticking it down into the head of the adjuster screw just enough to get some heat into it (do I really have to say to be very careful doing this?), which will loosen the loc-tite and allow you to adjust or remove the screw easily. If you're not brave enough to try that or don't have an iron, use a longer wrench for better leverage or use the old trick of putting the end of the allen wrench into the box end of a combination wrench and use that for extra leverage.

Yeah, I still have problems with mine. Felt like I was going to break it so I left it alone. Will try to wd40 it later to see if that enables me to loosen it up. Thanks for the tip, will post a follow up to see if that worked.
