I agree it is nasty. But a little at a time, and careful masking and daming with putty, etc it is manageable. My old hobby was RC planes and I used the stuff quite a bit in that context and if you are careful it is workable. And it is also reversible if need be.

Only possible drawback could be that it might compress a bit over time. But then I figure you can go the bicycle patch shim route.

I think i would go with this suggestion....

Wondering if this might not be the issue actually. Like many I have the "rattly BX trigger" issue, so I shimmed the crap out of it with aluminum tape so it would not move in the receiver anymore. Perhaps I shimmed it too well and there is some interference there and its actually the trigger group messing things up.

Or as you say at least it might help me see if there is interference with the receiver itself.

Thanks again
the BX uses the exact same poly housing as any other factory trigger.

so if your original trigger housing fit more snugly into your receiver then just swap housings

Any issues with swapping the guts of bx trigger into old aluminum housing?

the old alloy housings aren't as consistent as far as the pin hole spacing's go compared to the poly units, so there is only one way to tell if the BX will work in yours or not...you actually have to swap everything and see how it feels, I've only done one BX in a Ruger alloy housing and everything went OK, but I still prefer the TI housings because they have a built in trigger overtravel stop, and they have an anodized finish that matches their receivers
