trigger mounting help.

Unread postAuthor: LovableAirGuns » Thu Apr 07, 2011 3:10 am

Hey every one.

At the moment I been having some trouble with mounting the trigger and I was wondering if anyone had some helpful ideas for mounting it. It is currently mounted on with hot glue but it cant handle the stress from the striker when I lock it in place and then the trigger falls off the gun. The reason why i use hot glue because it is easy to remove when I have trouble with the striker or if i need to remove the striker but i need something that is more easy to remove and it is durable.

Any ideas?

you could use epoxy in place of hot glue, or straighten out a peace of copper pipe and solder it in the same way you already have the clear plastic.

mabey you can solder brass nuts to the side of you pipe and have a bolt braket. its not a super strong but should hold.

How about a couple of hose clips round the copper tube, remove the bolt and nut and replace with a longer bolt that goes through the trigger housing and into the hose clips. Nice and easy to remove if needs be.
