I have been having some issues with my trigger locking up. When my borg first arrived this was not a issues, but then after a few minutes of play it locked up. Now by locked up I mean the screws tightening in the trigger. The screws seems to be screwing themselves in and adding tension, I keep on backing the screws off, only to have tension return again. Anyone else have these problems, or know how to fix it.

Agreed, but I would reccomend removing the trigger to apply the loctite and then reinstall after its dried. A tiny amount of loctite in the wrong place will destroy the gun (especially the board). Also be sure to use only medium or light strength, If you use loctite brand its the BLUE one but may be a different color if its a different brand so look for light or medium strength. Use of high strength or red Loctite will surely destroy your chances of ever adjusting it again and may even strip the aluminum threads if you try. Good luck -ED

Well, that's exactly what I was gonna tell you too! If it's definitely the screws tightening themselves (which doesn't seem quite right), then a little low-strength Loctite should do it, and it's a cheap fix. I'd try that and, if it continues to do this, get back to me and I'll see what I can find out for you.

Thank you for all the replies, I will take up your advise. Though after a little more adjusting it no longer seems to be locking up. It may come back, if it does I'll try locktite. The problem does seem odd, but the only explanation that I can find for it is that somehow the trigger is tightening itself. When I go back and tighten the screw, the screw is literally screwed in and tight. Thank you for all the help, I'll get back to this topic if I have any more problems.

Exactly which screw(s) seem to have the problem? All of them or just the lower (post-travel) screw?

It's mostly the tention adjust screw at the top of the trigger. But, after adjusting all 3 of the screws with much loosening and tightening, it seems to stop the problems. So it could be a combination of all of them causing the problem. I think the reason for my problem was not "balancing" the screws, causing it to be loose in certain screws and tight in the others. I just needed to find the median, where it was lose enough for walking, but tense enough to be forced to apply light pressure. It's hard to explain, but I think the main problems was the tension adjust at the top.
