"TBO" Trigger installation

I honest to God can't get the Flatness trigger to install on/in my Mini. I put one magnet the the front screw. I think that's right.

The other goes below the bottom screw (reverse polarity one). That screw keeps coming out and attaching to the grip frames magnet, but a little locktite or super glue can fix that.

I got it working once but it was not near sensitive enough to walk faster than 13-14 on semi. That's too slow dangit. So I took it apart and switched magnets around for the heck of it. The bottom of the trigger touches my trigger guard too. The little bottom screw can be adjusted to touch first instead but then the shot won't register. I'm tired of messing around with each screw turning them in and out. I've watched a few videos and scoured stickies for a how to but I'm already pissed off from failing so many times and have no patience yet. The magnet on the first screw doesn't like to sit flat either.

I JUST NEED INSTRUCTIONS! I'M CLUELESS...

Why wouldn't this come with directions for installation? Not everyone knows what's going on.

Please help me.

Be back in 20 minutes. I'm going to try one more time, but use more common sense if possible.
EDIT: BTW, I know how to adjust all of the screws and whatnot. I'm not that clueless.

Ok, the bottom reverse polarity screw is too strong. It keeps my index finger's pull from register a lot of the time. Do the magnets that come with these triggers all have the same strength? The stock trigger's magnet doesn't fit well, but I could blue locktite it in? Are there any known solutions to this problem?

The stock trigger's reverse polarity screw is glued into the trigger. Should I glue all magnets?

The same space where the magnet goes on the new trigger. The magnets I recieved are larger than the stock ones, and the space for them on the new trigger is a little big for the stock magnets.

ok first there should be a magnet glued to the screw on top and a magnet glued in the back of the trigger, if you want it returned by a magnet. you should be able to screw the stock screw witha magnet out the top of the stock trigger, then screw it back into the flatness through the top.

There wasn't anything glued except the bottom most screw. That one will not come out unless I cut into the trigger.
I'll switched the top magnet for the heck of it and glue it one.

My biggest problem is the the bottom most screw on the trigger, the one that resists the magnet in the grip is too strong. It keeps me from shooting at a decent speed.

I think you just need to play with you screw settings a little bit. I love the stronger magnet and can shoot must faster and can maintain that faster spped for a longer time. you just need to find your triigers happy place.

I've had it set at the two extremes. No bounce ever EVER. Out a ways, and in really tight. With the stock trigger setup I could hit around 18 or 19 balls a second, and with this magnet I can hit around 16-17 but there are breaks in firing. I can't maintain consistancy as well. I like the way the new trigger looks and even feels, except when I get the fingers moving faster.

I believe I sent you three magnets, none of them were glued to anything, you're sure you don't have magnets doubled up on the back of the trigger right?

When I was talking about nothing being glued, I was talking about the stock trigger setup.

if you think the trigger magnet is too strong you can run a lighter under it for a quick flash and it will kill some of the magnetic strength... assuming neodymium magnets work the same as rare earth magnets.

A lighter? As in a flame???

I exchanging this trigger for the Vampire style. The curved distance at the bottom will yield a lighter pull hopefully. I'll look into flashing magnets though.

yup - more specifically heat - but a lighter can provide that.

Do it sparingly though because you can completely remove the magnetism pretty quickly. Just ask all those people that baked their bodies without removing the magnet first
