Ancient news I know. I just wanted to show people how it was done. I had seen lots of "Pan spring??" questions. As far as the trigger spring, remove it! It is unnecessary.

Ok I did a few tests and all I can say is using tape in your gun is a very bad idea, I am still going to try this mod since I have a spair real bolt but after testing most types of tape out there, after being exposed to oil they all lost their stickeyness and fell off, exept aluminum tape, if you are going to do somethign with tape use aluminum tape.

Try using speaker wire, without the insulation. What I have is the little spring from an allen wrench set. You guys knows the hex keys that come on what looks like a key ring? They are attached using a really thin coiled wire. The one that matches the pin is what I used.

Don't do it on an RT. The springs are different.

It will stay up only for about a week as per Reb Cpl's instruction. In theory it could damage the striker hammer, but in a year of having it on my Tippmann I have had no effect to the performance of my gun. Worst case scenario, after a long time you would have to replace the striker.

I tried Layman's pen spring mod , and had good luck with it, for the sear rest pin , I used the remainder of the pen spring because I had problems finding wire of the correct diameter also for that , also a Viton O -ring as a replacement for the hammer "bumper" (just slightly thicker than the stock O-ring) helps to speed up the cycle time for a few cents , every thousandth the hammer travel is reduced ,is 2 thousandths of an inch saved in cycle time , because the hammer travels full stroke backwards and then forward to engage the sear. Long Live "Junk Modders" , I would rather spend my coin on paint to mark a player that had more money that sense , besides ,,, the junk mods of today , are innovations of tomorrow , dont be afraid to try something new . Thanks Layman , for the great Mod !!

Not my original thought here guys - I just wanted to make it crystal clear for others that kept asking about the pen spring mod. I originally set this up in "New Players" because of all the questions there. But thanks anyway.

if you remove the trigger spring then you have a bunch of slop, how do you fix that?

I glued a piece of a thin clear vinyl washer on the top of the trigger, just above where the trigger spring used to be.

I read on another site somewhere , that the Shank of a # 30 drill bit (the smooth back end , not the fluted drilling surface )is a perfect fit in the trigger's pivot-pin location , the front pin of the two that go through the trigger . I will pick up a drill bit soon and re-post as to the fit and performance as far as reducing trigger "slop".
