So does this work with E triggers and mech. triggers?

Well, with e-triggers you'd simply adjust a screw to the point in which the trigger switch would activate the solenoid. For mech triggers you'd adjust it just past the point in which the sear would mechanically trip.

Seems applicable to both.

Ah.. I see. So all you do is drill a hole in the trigger, then put a small screw in it?

mr. virus sent me a trigger mod a few years ago its better than this and it isnt permanent. and ther isnt a screw in the trigger......here ya go

Trigger Mod for mechanical Piranha frame

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First thing that Ive got to mention here.
Be sure, before you get started, that you’ve got enough time to do the job correctly.
You do not want to be rushed, and end up pitching the frame out the window!
A certain degree of patience is necessary.

The first thing to do, is remove the bottomline ASA from the grip frame.
You can now unscrew the front grip from the vertical ASA.

Remove the grip frame from the gun body.

There are two areas of trigger travel that are covered here:
Pre-travel…the trigger travel prior to the shot.
Post-travel…the trigger travel after the shot.
Ideally, you want minimal travel in both areas…that’s why you’re reading this, and I’m here to walk you through it !

As you hold the frame in your right hand, and look down into the internal workings, you’ll notice a “finger” that sticks out from the trigger body, towards the front of the frame.
This “finger” is going to be our main area of concentration.
Look closely, and you’ll see a spring under this finger…this spring is what returns the trigger back to the fire position.
By reducing the fingers downward travel into this spring, you greatly reduce the triggers post-travel.
We’ll tackle that first.

The first thing you have to do, is remove the trigger pin from the frame.
That’s the pin that holds the trigger in place.
Begin tapping out the pin from the shooters LEFT to RIGHT through the frame.
I found that a thin nail works pretty well.
Just remember which end of the pin needs to go BACK in first…because one end is larger in diameter than the other.
Once the pin is removed, you can move the trigger body clear of the spring.
There’s no need to completely remove the trigger.

Next…you are going to make a block that fits INTO the spring coil, which will restrict the fingers movement.
NOTE…Here’s where the patience comes into play.

I used a nail, whose diameter fit snugly into the spring coil, and cut off a 1/8/th. inch length (aprox) as the block.
After filing both ends smooth, this block can now be dropped into the spring coil.
By substituting an allen wrench for the trigger pin, (you’ll see why) replace the trigger to its normal position, then remount the frame onto the gun body.
Cock the gun as you would normally, and squeeze the trigger…does it dry fire?

* YES !…Are you happy with the triggers post-travel now? If so, then you’re done with this part…you lucky dog!
If not ?…then the block has got to be a bit longer.

* NO !…The block has got to be shortened by filing away some of the material. Not too much at one time.
File a couple of good strokes, and return the frame to the gun body to try it again.
Come on !…remember what I said about patience ?

Once you have the block tweaked to the proper length, the trigger shouldn’t move after the gun fires.
You can now return the trigger pin to its proper location.

NOTE…some guys have discovered that once the trigger pin is in place, the gun wont dry fire. This is cause for a bit more tweaking as noted above.

Next is dealing with the pre-travel, and after what you probably went through with the post -travel, this is going to be a walk in the park !


Remove the frame once again, and this time look at the TOP of the finger.
Wipe down the top of the finger with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol…this removes any oil that might be present.
Next…you want to cut strips of electrical tape (some guys use aluminum tape) to the exact width of the finger.
Place these strips, one at a time, on top of the finger.
Start with four strips, and press down firmly.
Wipe down the bottom of the gun body where the finger makes contact, then reattach the frame to the gun body.
As you press the frame into position, you’ll notice the trigger is moving backwards slightly.
This is due to the tape stack making contact with the gun body, removing the pre-travel in the trigger.

Add or remove strips of tape until the pre-travel is non-existent.

That’s all there is to it ! Easy huh? And best of all there’s no permanent damages done.
Let me know how it came out…just don’t hold me responsible if your shot count has increased somewhat !!


if you use this mod, thank my virus. i did it to all my mech triggers
