Gargoyle - New Owner Questions

I have wanted a Gargoyle for a few years, and I am in awe of it now that I have one. RTR deserves the highest praise for manufacturing this gun, and I hope there is a Gargoyle II. It would be nice to have more gargoyles in existence.

To make sure this garg is operating as it should, I have a few questions.

There is some left to right wiggle in the trigger. Is this normal or am I missing a spacer/part? The trigger pull feels great.

What is the best way to remove the barrel thread adapter? I am worried about messing up the anno. Should I use a wrench?

How do you prevent rollouts? Do I need a freak bored barrel?

A slight wiggle in the trigger is normal.

The barrel adaptor shouldn't need to be removed with a tool (should be able to be removed by hand). If it's on too tight use a small rubber strap wrench to remove then put a -016 or -017 oring on the male threaded end to prevent overtightening in the future.

The barrel adaptor also should have little detents inside it so you shouldn't have rollouts, but I still use a freak insert barrel for added shot-to-shot consistency with the barrel adaptor.

Short is Right 100% about roll outs. With the dimples I never had a single roll out.

RTR Also sells a tool to remove the adapter when it is over tightened.

Rodney recommended using an adjustable wrench to remove the adapter. One with no teeth works fine, just place something between the wrench and the metal to prevent scuffing.


"Don't use pliers as you may crush the part out of round. Hopefully it's not already out of round.

Have you tried an adjustable wrench yet? That would be your best bet and it really shouldn't take much force.

The strap wrench isn't a good idea either as it squeezes the part where the adjustable wrench only applies side pressure."

I used this guy right here...

Interesting... I'd definitely take the advice of the creator himself, over my own. Good to know if I ever need to remove the adaptor (although I also have the adaptor tool, now that someone mentioned it - totally forgot about it since I've only ever used it to remove the pump handle inserts).
