lighter trigger pull

so, u've probably heard this a million times,but to bad. i had a bunch of springs and i tried them all to find which one worked the best. i took a clicky pen spring, and cut it a little bit shorter than the stock sear spring. I tried a few different springs, so a little trial and error will help determine which spring you will want to use. you can't make the spring to short, or else you can't cock the gun.
then i took a spring from a mechanical pencil, and replaced the stock trigger spring wit the pencil spring. u can make this as small of a spring as you want. replacing this spring doesn't do much, but there is a little bit of a difference that i could notice.

Don't do any of those mods. I did them, but took them out. You could check out the Madman Spring Kit.
Monk...Log in is crap.

I just recently did it, Im lovin it.

People say its not safe. Which is true, however, if you find the right spring and not exede the spring constant for that spring. It will not cause any problems at all.

Why would you say that? When i had my a5 i found that making the trigger lighter increased my amount of bps by atleast 2.

I would definately suggest doing this mod, if you get a spring the same size as the stock one, but it feels much lighter, then replace it with the stock, chances are it will help you alot.

But you could mess up some of your internals.

you know, you could take one loop out of the stock sear spring.

Just take out the trigger spring and stretch/cut the sear spring.

I've been wondering the same thing. Still not worth it for that little of a difference.

I'm thnking that if the spring doesn't have enough tension, the sear might not have enought time to catch the bolt causing wear and tear.

He is not talking about the spring which pushes your trigger back up. He is refering to the sear spring.

Do not do these mods. They wear out the sear and bolt way too fast.

I can't stand it when I take out my trigger spring! It's never in ready postition. It just looks and feels broken.

i did this mod with my pro-lite and im lovin it Laughing . but on my 98C i put a spring from under the button on a lighter(it was the exact same length as the trigger spring)and its less than like .5lb pull now, so that might work better than a pen or pencil spring.

That's without the sear, count the sear in and it's a lot of resisance, this what most people forget to lightne your trigger pull the most you need to work with the sear...
