    Is it possible to do a trigger job on the new condor SS with the two stage trigger? Mine is to hard to pull for me, just wondering if it can be lightened up some.

    I found a trick that invloves a washer and makes the trigger pull quite light. With out disassembling your rifle . For new trigger/ spin loc models. PM me for details.

    Post it here so others can get it without having to clutter up your inbox. It also makes it easier for everybody else, in the fact that they don’t/won’t need to pm you. Thanks! :biggrinn:

    Note that this will void your warranty and do at your own risk.

    I used Pilots G2 pen springs, it’s a little smaller in diameter but works great !
    The pen uses a smaller spring wire then the OEM trigger spring so it has a lighter tension.
    Not sure what the pull weight on it is now, but it’s much lighter then before.

    I made/cut the shear spring (middle spring) the same length as the OEM one.
    The first stage spring (closest to the trigger) shorter then the OEM one, with it being just slightly compressing when reinstalling the trigger cover bar.
    I kept the hammer engagement spring (closest to the muzzle) OEM.

    On the lateral play, I installed a small but wide nylon washer between the safely bar and trigger it help reduce play by half.

    GKU Excellent tip. I just got my condor “used” the tank started leaking at the valve o-ring so while I was waiting for the repair I worked the trigger over. A little cleaning, debut, polish, then changed out a couple springs. And a much better trigger. Gonna shoot awhile before trying a super sear. Well worth the time, G2 pens, and moly lube. :biggrinn:

    Thanks guys,

    Some don’t like the fact that it’s has a tad smaller in diameter, but I think the OEM is a bit to large in diameter a tad smaller is better.
    Some owners reporting of a squeaking trigger pull and the over large OEM trigger springs are the main cause of this squeaking.
    It rubs against the side of the trigger housing, sometimes adding a light coat of moly lubing can helps remedy this problem.

    Also just a friendly reminder, don’t forget that opening and working on the trigger will void your factory warranty !

    Do you know a good/easy way of adjusting the first stage pull length?

    No Sir, but the only safe one I know of is adding a preload screw/adjuster.
    Also, you need to be sure if it can be done to the model of AF gun you have.
