I bought some p-rod trigger assemblies for adding onto my air pistols. I read that someone had used epoxy putty to fill the groove in the hammer - my solution was to cut a small piece of steel to fill the groove and to braze it in place. The groove needs to be filled or the gun cannot be cocked without pulling the trigger. The two stage trigger really is much better - I also like how the pull can be adjusted. What trigger weight is good for air pistols? I was thinking around 3.5 pounds would be good. I think some people go lighter but that might increase the chance of negligent discharge.

Adjust it to what feels good to you then cock the gun and give it a few good bumps to see if it fires or not if it goes off the back off a bit and try again

Hi,

I've been wondering about trying the p-rod trigger. I was wondering what you get with it - does it come with a grip frame like the 2240 assembly? And the inevitable questions of where from and how much?

I bought mine off of eBay - paid 89.99 bucks US each for them. The whole frame was included, and they all worked fine. It's possible there are cheaper ones out there, but I really didn't look around. The hole spacing and the location of the sear are the same as on the original assembly, so I didn't have to do any modification to the original tube. The holes for the grips are in the same location, so the original grips work.

I've got it set at around 3.5 pounds, which is the single action pull weight that I'm used to. I did the bump test and it seems fine. I tried it with a really light pull and I don't like that as much as a standard pull weight.

You can also buy a BlueFork design frame for $85. Have one on my 2260 the breaks at 9oz. Set just like a match trigger, very crisp and short.

I know Mauraders have good triggers with just a bit of tuning. The only thing I touched on the Bluefork was the trigger weight screw.

The trigger assembly that i got from Eric also came with the trigger limit screw as well as the ball bearing and spring for the safety.

After a couple of tins of pellets I have to say that I really like the new trigger. This is a truly worthwhile modification.
