    I just picked up a nice 682 from Handlepuller (thank you) and would like to adjust the location of the trigger. I cannot loosen the screw. It is a very small slotted brass colored screw.

    Any ideas or tricks for getting this to break loose?

    If you have not got it loose. I would try laying the gun on it's side with the screw head facing up and put a drop of PB Blaster on it. Let it soak down through the threads over night. Worth a try anyway.

    Somebody might have glued it in place when they adjusted it. Try a couple different solvents on it. As a last resort you try heating it with the tip of an electric soldering iron, let it cool and see if it loosens up. HMB

    I had one on my 90T and went to a great gunsmith who put a screwdriver in the slot and while twisting it he struck it with a small hammer. Popped loose easily

    I recently had to remove a similar screw from my Beretta. After several failed attempts with various screw driver I have I, took it to my local Body shop. Fellow used a hardened Snap On srew driver. Two seconds latter screw was out. Good luck.

    I had the exact same problem. one drop of Kroil, waited 10 minutes, turned it loose like it was never even tightened. Give that a try first before an drastic measures. Be sure the screwdriver fits the slot.

    The threads are on the end of the screw, away from the head. That's where you want to put the Kroil or whatever you decide to use on them.

    A regular screwdriver has a tapered tip, you need a different screwdriver, one that has a specially ground tip. You can all the Beretta USA service department at 1-800-237-3882 (1-800-BERETTA).

    When the screws are tightened, they are stopped against the bottom of the head, not the end of the thread. At times I've wondered if Beretta uses an impact driver to install this little screw.

    On occassion, I've needed to put the receiver in the vise on my mill, and install a proper fitting screwdriver bit into the chuck. Using the chuck as a handle, most times the screw will "crack" loose. Other times I've had the screw head break through the slot. In this case, the drills need to come out.

    Thank you for the insight Doug. Another job coming your way. Kroil did not loosen it.

    If it's got the RED LOCKTITE on it, it isn't going to come out w/o heat.
