Once you know the pivot pin fits you can
install the Fang into your marker. Lets take a look at the
2a When adjusting the trigger I like to
start is the post-travel set screw #1.
I like to make sure that this set screw starts out flush with
the trigger face. The fang trigger is pretty thin, so starting
it out flush will make all the rest of the adjustments that
much easier. It will also make the trigger look and feel best
when you are finished.
2b. The second screw I
adjust is the microswitch set screw
#2. This screw presses up against the micro
switch. I adjust it in clockwise to the point where it will
actuate the microswitch with very little pull. Once that's
done, I try my best to find a nice balance between the pre-travel
set screw #3
and the microswitch set screw #2.
The pre-travel set screw #3
pushes the trigger back toward the actuation point, and take
the forward play out of the trigger movement.
Its been my experience that getting the adjustment perfect
can take some trial and error. Meaning that your first adjustment
may be too close, and safety may not work. You can only really
know this with the gun back together.
If this is the case, you will need to open up the gun again
and re-adjust the trigger. It took me about 3 attempts to
get mine perfect. The goal is to have a nice short trigger
pull that utilizes all three set screws. Its a bit of an art
to do it well, but just give it some thought, and I'm sure
you'll get it right.
2c. You'll also notice that I have removed
the trigger spring from the front of the trigger. By removing
this spring I am making the trigger feel super light, and
I am relying on the microswitch to return my trigger. Another
way to have a lighter pull is to replace the spring with a
lighter spring. I typically use springs out of ink pens. I
cut them to the same length as the stock spring. They typically
work really well. Again, its up to you. Personally I like
using no spring. Some people warn me about how it will make
the microswitch wear out more quickly....but I really don't
care about that. I want the lightest pull possible.
If you adjust your trigger really short and you remove the
spring, your gun may fire fully automatic. For some of you
thats a good thing. For some of you its not. You decide what's
best for you.
If you want to make sure that your set screws stay put, its
a good idea to use some type of thread locker on all three
of the set screws. I have had some people tell me that blue
loctite is good, and others tell me that a silicon caulk like
material is good too. Again, its up to you. I personally use
BLUE loctite. Its holds everything pretty well.
