I have a Spyder TL and was wondering how to make the trigger have a shorter pull distance or like a hair trigger?

the simple way to shorten the trigger pull is to just buy an electronic frame and adjust it accordingly. you wouldnt want it too close or else you would have trigger bounce/ double firing

Does the TL have a Double Trigger? If it does I can show you how I did mine.

Yes it does have the double trigger.I stuck on a rubber spacer behind the trigger on the grip part and that made it not go in so far but far enough to trip the sear. What did you do ?

Drill, tap, and thread the top and the middle of the trigger. Two set screws, one for each. Top does fore-travel (sticking out above the trigger), the one on the trigger does rear travel (extending from the rear of the trigger).

I can take pictures or a video of my trigger frame for you so you have a better idea of what exactly to do. I'll try to get it up tonight.

Sorry I haven't gotten pictures up yet, been busy. I will try really hard to get something up this weekend.

Here you go, finally:

Front of the trigger. Drilled and tapped for 6-32 set screw.


Top of the trigger. Drilled and tapped it for a 4-40 set screw.

Hey thanks for the pics and video,good job. I think I will try the top screw the black rubber stops I put behind the trigger works well .
