T2 question

Just played my first day of pump ever with the T2 I picked up, and I was wondering, is there a reason to not run a stiffer return spring? I think I'd prefer a stiffer pump stroke with a snappier return, if that makes sense.

you can run what ever reeturn spring you want. some people run both the internal spring and external one.

i did the same with my 6.5. found some springs with the same diameter at my "local" hardware store not at the big box stores. you can also "stretch" the spring.

Preference dude.
I'm a fan of double return springs, but other people like the super smoothness of a single/no return spring.

Play around and see what you like.

I double up when I can. So there isn't a need for me to pull/push the handle forward.



Peace-

This is EXACTLY what I'm going for. Is there a good resource for T2 maintenance? Pictures, diagrams, or video of how to properly disassemble, spring, and reassemble would be amazing. Thanks for all the help so far
