greetings

just want to pic the brains of the Crosman connoisseur on here, if i was to buy a new phantom(likely with plastic trigger), could i do the following mod, remove the lawyer spring and add a washer to the trigger pin, same mod as you could do on the benjamin, vantage, quest, venom, etc etc

i'm asking as i understand you can't install a GRT trigger if your phantom came with the plastic trigger...but could you do the above mod still ?

i searched this but can't seem to find someone who has done with the plastic trigger version

I can't speak for whatever the maker of the GRT unit claims, but we have had no such issues with the GTX trigger: http://scopesandammo.com/storefront/pro ... more-p-242

the GTX posted on the site has that exact warning about the plastic trigger, so you're saying that it isn't an issue regardless of that warning :?:

What I'm saying is that I have yet to see a plastic trigger Phantom sold in Canada- they may, in fact, have been one of the factory "temporary" parts changes that occur and has since been reversed.

There is always a way. If you have a newer trigger then you should be able to drill a hole to add another screw to split the thing into two stages like the old style trigger.
The old trigger had two springs pushing on the trigger, so if you removed the primary one if left you with a very weak one which worked out perfect. The new one doesn't use the same removable spring, but what was the lighter spring in the old trigger is beefed up and that's what they use. You can just bend it to weaken it.
