Trigger Maintenance

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me some pointers on a suitable maintenance regime for a trigger mechanism? 

Looks to be a little crud building up in my t3 trigger housing. 

Cheers

If its full of crap blast it out with brake cleaner , then re lube with WD 40  , (AI recommend WD40 for triggers ) , Test thoroughly before using live ammo.

Get an aerosol can of brake cleaner, remove trigger assy, wash through repeatedly until squeaky clean, allow to dry completely,  then give a squirt of a dry lube such as :

Dunking them in lighter fluid every so often used to be the recommendation.  I use Zippo lighter fluid available on ebay for not much money.
