Thanks for the cool reply, Chevota! :D. I made the trigger out of 1/4'' thick stainless steel flat stock, and the safety lever and screws are also SS.
I tried the classic mod with the washer and didn't liked it, I found the trigger to be not enough predictable, so, not secure to my taste. Also thought about doing your trick of drilling the original trigger blade, but on my Beeman, that trigger was a little too far back, so I decided to make a new one, which now have a perfect position. But as you noticed, there are some improvements to be done, that's why I appreciate your reply. I like to have a second opinion, especially since you seem to have some experience about that kind of work. I will indeed re-round the screws' tips, I guess I felt impatient on the day I made them! When I ground the sear and sear lever, I only removed the ''wave'' left by the stamping. I did not want to mess too much with the geometry of the parts, since everything was working quite well.
As for the trigger finish, I'd rather polish it :mrgreen: . The rifle's barrel and receiver came nickel plated from the factory, and I'd like to accentuate that 'scheme' a bit. I already made a SS trigger guard and added SS screws to it, and I plan to replace the fore stock black screws with Allen head SS screws.
That Beeman rifle is kind of a test bench, so I'm not finished with it! Reminds me of my 1377... :roll: :D I will probably make the trigger mod on my Crosman rifles, now that i know it works well. Thanks again for sharing your experience, dear sir!

If other parts are stainless then you're good to go. I assumed it was a generic Crosman.
Since you're into improvements have you tuned it at all? Quieted the spring, fixed the main seal and that sort of stuff? I have ideas on that stuff if you want it. It's ~6M of data so too much to post here, but email me at chevota at hotmail and I'll send it. That's com not ca

That's quite a a friendly offer, Chevota! :D Thanks! I have some time today, so I think I'll work on my rifle :wink: . I'll send you an e-mail with pictures, if it's ok.

Greetings

Hi everyone!

If you want to have a lighter trigger but with no play, you can ''un-roll' one coil of the trigger spring and cut and re-bend to the correct lenght and shape. I did it on my Beeman conversion, does work pretty well.


This worked like a charm although some knowledge is required in order to retain somewhat of a decent, long lasting spring that won't fail or worst, invite it's sharpy shapr friends over to fail into your action and reduce it to lady gaga.

The initial spring remove, without any further alterations, works great and seems safe and reliable.

But.. it you want to avoid that sideways motion of the unsprung trigger piece... you will have to either uncoil - as suggested - or better yet, wind your own spring using music wire and matching (somewhat) the profile of what was in there initially.

Music wire is definitely the way to go as far as i'm concerned

Thanks to everyone who added their unsuspecting, pre-pande-minds few cents to this thread.

Now...

.IS THERE A F**** WAY TO SHAVE SOME WEIGHT OF THIS BEAST OF A PLINKER (high fps version in .177)???
