... any trigger can do a trigger job .. as long as you can take the frame off ... and move some stuff around ... yeah .. it shouldn't be too hard :) ...

You can do one. I did on my old Sonix! Just tapped a hole in front of the trigger and put a set screw in. Looked pretty ghetto though.

Hmm sounds like idea # 2 will probably be the easiest any more suggestions?

I modded my trigger, on my shutter, which is also mechanical. I can take some pics if you want me too. I'll try to get them up tomorrow, my camera batteries need to be recharged, unless I can find my spare batteries.

Otter has a trigger job on his site too. I used a combination of Otter mods and ACP trigger mods. I'll have pics up later today so you can see it, camera is almost done charging.

As promised these are some pictures of my trigger on my Shutter. I measured the trigger pull and its about 8mm, with no problems cocking or recocking. I had it shorter but I had problems with it cocking.

First picture: This is the trigger frame on the gun, just so you can see the distance between the back trigger stop and where it rests.


Second picture: This is the adjustment screw for the back slack.


Third picture: This is the adjustment screw for the front slack.


Forth picture: This the the spacer I put on the sear resting pin so that the sear sits lower.


Hope that gives you an idea of what you can do. You can combine all the different ideas and come up with your own trigger job. I also have a lighter spring in mine and bump stop under the trigger because with the other adjusters you don't need it. After you're done let us know and show us what you came up with. Good luck. If you need anymore help please feel free to ask.

Yeah a pretty good upgrade for 62 cents i put a 1/4 in nylon spacer on the seer rest and also I added a little bit of metal to the top of my trigger, as well as changed the trigger spring. All goes to show when someone says it cant be done it really can be. It all seems well now but we'll see this weekend! Thanks for all the advice.

The trigger job on the sonix is pretty easy, as long as you have a dremel to cut stuff up with. I used a 3/8" rivet, cut the head and washer off and used that for the sear stop. It fits perfectly. I did not use set screws and a die for the slack stops. I used a small section of teflon mountain bike gear housing to put inside the spring for the back slack stop, and cut a tiny piece of washer to put on top of the trigger toe for the front slack stop. If the gun will not recock itself after firing, you have too much material on top of the trigger toe for the front stop. Sand it gently. Crazy glue does not like being dremeled. It really is pretty easy. I basically followed the trigger mod in post #6 above and it works great. And I bought my gun in December of '05, so if I can do it, you can do it.

If you want to get extra fancy, use the cutting tool to kind of sand down the safety pin just enough that it goes under the trigger toe after you've added the material to the top. This will make perfect sense once you've modded the trigger in the first place. If you don't, you're safety won't work. Since I did this mod on my 10-year old son's gun, it was important to me that he have a working saftey, mostly because I don't want to get plugged accidentally at point blank range.

Hope this helps.

whats a trigger job?

trigger job is where you finely tune your frame in order to maintain an increase in BPS ... basically meaning ... less pull for the action
