Rem 700 Trigger

Im trying to adjust the sear engagement screw on an old Rem trigger, and it will not move. Do any of you have any tips as to how to get this screw to move. Thanks for your help.

    Heat the crap out of it with a soldering iron.

    You can use a propane torch to melt the glue on the adjusting screws. Heat it up a little and try the screw until it moves, just watch you don't burn you finger on the trigger shoe. Let it cool a little first.

    I tried the soldering iron the other day. I guess I should have let the iron on it longer. I will try these ideas again. Thanks.
