Any easy trigger cleaning methods?

just recently got my trigger frame filled with paint after getting shot in the trigger a few times and this has caused it to get stuck a lot. I was wondering if any of you guys have any tricks to cleaning out the trigger frame. I really don't want to take apart the entire thing apart because I'm not completely sure I will be able to put it back together correctly.

Hot water is your friend. Once you have rinsed it out you can use a hair dryer to completely dry it out then hit it with some marker oil to relube everything in order to keep any rust off the spring. If you feel confident in taking it apart I would and do a thorough cleaning and using some dow 33 on the sliding contact points of the trigger.

Just my 2 pennies and I hope that helps out

I like mixing the water with some rubbing alcohol. The alcohol helps it dry really clean, and it seems to help get oils off. Because you are cleaning an internal part, maybe re-oil it.

Well I soaked it in water and let it dry before dipping some oil in it and right now whenever I pull the trigger there would be a grinding sound when degased and feel and it would constantly get stuck when I gas it up and try to shoot. Any ideas on what's causing this?

There is probably some dirt/grim in between the mating surfaces of the trigger and the housing. It needs to be taken apart and cleaned properly. When I had my Gargoyle frame I would take it apart and clean it after every outing and put some dow 33 between the mating surfaces to keep it silky smooth. I do the same with my Grey Ghost as well.

What tool did you use to remove the screws on the frame and where can I get it?

It's just a really small Allen wrench. I don't remember the size off the top of my head. Remove those 4 side screws and be careful the spring doesn't go flying when you take out the spring. It's not hard to prevent but it is hard to find if you loose it.
