Removing trigger/hammer?

Anyone know how to remove the trigger and hammer when the standard pins aren't involved?

I've got these faux screws. I say "faux" because they don't unscrew. I tried just unscrewing. I tried unscrewing both sides simultaneously. I tried unscrewing one side while securing the other. Both sides are the same, for what it's worth

Anyone ever dealt with something like this?

Try a screw driver in EACH side of screw.
You may need heat if they've been loctite'd.

Probably a version of this:

I've tried unscrewing from both ends SIMULTANEOUSLY--no luck. There's no loctite, the screws spin freely.

It makes no sense, really.

Have you tried just pushing them out, because they could be fake heads, or are they beveled heads.

Take a heat gun and heat up the trigger group, you may have to take a little time for this. Then try the two screw drivers again, they probably are loctited in but also they could be left handed thread as well. So try it one direction or the other.

Try putting some outward pressure on the screw while turning it.

Sounds like the thread is no longer grabbing.

I called ATI. Turns out since the lower is polymer putting even a little bit of pressure on the screws while unscrewing them instantly strips the lower's threads.

In other words I'm getting what I paid for.

In that case drill them out carefully and replace with a KNS trigger bar setup, or build a Lower with the existing ATI parts

Oh god! When will you kids learn plastic is no medium for guns.

Why do you need to take out the hammer anyway, if it works spray it out with gumout let dry and spray WD-40 and move on. You bought a lower obviously that was not meant to be serviced.
