    Posted: 05 June 2007 at 1:49am
I have a A.P.E. Rampage board installed with a JCS dual finger trigger. I am trying to find a way to lighten the effort needed to fire. Does anyone have any ideas? Appreciated.

Try a lighter trigger spring and pre- and/or post-travel stops for your trigger.

Do you have the JCS Duel Trigger or just a Double Trigger?

as sinisternorth said, try a lighter spring,  i think pen springs will be a good choice for both springs, not just the return spring.  and dont reget to tune the JCS trigger.

I am going to ask what might be considered by some a stupid question, but I have no experience actually using an A-5 with E-grip. Aren't you depressing an electric switch when you pull the trigger similarly to how the E-Bolt electronics operate? The electric switch on my E-Bolt "fires" with only 1oz of finger pressure. Once I installed both fore and aft trigger travel stops I don't think things can be improved upon!

A light pen spring sounds like it might do the trick. I will try that out thanks guys. And just totel you guys so i dont sound like an idiot, I knew what i needed to do to make it lighter (i should have put the question better) but I meant is there a kit or anything out there for this?
