PMR UL trigger spring...

Will it harm my gun or microswitch by running it with no trigger spring?

It is said with no spring the microswitch may wear out faster. However you will probably get rid of the gun before that happens.

I did that and it bounced like crazy. Occasionally it would just shoot on its own, so be careful where its pointed! Dont worry about the switch, it lasted a long time and is still in good working condition now after months of playing that way.

yea a pen spring will work.

But the amount of more it wears down the microswitch is so little, you won't notice it.

I just bought a PMR with an UL frame. Can anyone tell me how high the debounce should be set to prevent bouncing (or at least give me a rough idea) when the spring is removed?

Do those of you who have removed the spring have any trouble with the trigger not returning quickly?

I took the spring out of my SLG, honestly, I dont think trigg-bounce is a big problem, as it doesnt happen too often. As long as you set the 2 point trigger adjustment back,(with the allen keys/tools) you shouldnt bounce
