  • Howa trigger group screw wont undo: please help!!!

    Hi,
    I want to send my trigger group off to the "ebay howa trigger dood" but the screw holding it to the receiver wont loosen.

    Driver i'm using fits snuggly but the screw wont budge! If i use any more force i'll damage the screw head!!!

    Will i have to take it to a smith just to get this bloody screw loose???
    I thought about using my impact driver but on second thoughts realised that may well be a very, very bad idea.

    Thanks
    Gwion

    Tap the screwdriver with a hammer a few times, maybe the "loctite" needs to be cracked.

    Thanks,

      Cheers Oddball. I did try the old "tap tap" but may have been a little bit of a pussy about it.
      Will try again and report back.
