trigger rod adjustment question..

I want to move the trigger rod more forward but it seems to be stuck . I have never adjusted the rod before but It seems to be frozen. Can't see any signs of loc-tite.

The rod will move forward. Understandably it is not designed to move easily because it would go out of adjustment frequently. There is no loc-tite. Apply even firm pressure with pliers so that you dont mark the rod to much and it should move.

I thought the same thing about mine when I first got it. You just gotta get a good grip with pliers and apply some torque.

There can be loctite on it, even if you don't see it. Never hurts to warm it up.

Ok well I have tried a few times but there really is noting to get leverage on to move the rod. I don't want to put to much pressure on the rod or the brass clevis holding the rod. I am only doing this cuz I am having issues with the gun short stroking and the bolt kinda getting stuck. It's a intelli frame with double trigger,and when pulled firmly its fine but if you don't get a full pull back it seems to chuff when hiss like the bolt is gonna jam . So my question is ,will pushing the rod more forward help or is this a on/ off issue thanks

There's loctite in it, just heat it and it'll start moving. Had to do the same thing last Saturday for my own sear.

Your problem sounds like it's just your trigger pull technique you'll need to train. Maybe some one with more knowledge on the subject can confirm?

Well I have a mini mag with a stock trigger frame and if you short stroke it or attempt to half pull the trigger it shoots fine . I tried to get it to do the same as my mag with the intelli frame and it won't . I know how to pull the trigger correctly. But it seems like its just not right

How large is the gap between the trigger and the trigger rod? It should be around credit card thin (though it does say paper thin in AGD manuals) when pressurised.

Yes the gap is about the size of a credit card when aired up .

Sorry about the misinformation ryanbrandon123 . I have adjusted a number of my mags and never noticed any loc-tite.

Yes heating it up will help getting it moving.
