A magnet should be in the front of your frame.

There should be a magnet up in the frame. The front screw adjusts the pull of the magnet. In for more return.
A buddy of mine had a Quest and it was missing that magnet. There wasn't even the hole milled out that the magnet fits into. I'm sure that is very rare though. I've never heard of anyone else with that.

As stated, there should indeed be a magnet to pull the trigger forwards, but they tend to be quite weak. Some people get a little rare earth magnet and add it to the frame to increase the return strength.

The screw at the top of the trigger is actually a front stop screw, and adjusts the angle of the trigger - it doesn't change the return strength at all (even though the Quest manual suggests that this screw does effect the return force).

Thing is though, that irrespective of how you adjust the screw, the trigger will always move forwards until the tip of the screw is resting against the frame, and hence the same distance away from the magnet, so the magnetic return force remains the same.

You really need a second adjustment screw so that you can set the position of the trigger, and then adjust the screw closest to the magnet without the trigger moving. Having said that, if you are looking to have the highest return strength, you would want the screw in contact with the frame anyway - which it already is. Really the solution is a stronger magnet.

Wow. That is the only other time I've heard of that. And as for the screws effect on return. I didn't use the screw for the forward stop. The body of the trigger hitting the frame was where I liked the stop to be. Now the screw can be used as just a return adjustment. Like you said the magnet isn't the strongest so mine was only screwed out a turn. It did change the pull though.

its just such a sloppy pull like horrible and coming back takes too long by the time your other finger touches the trigger it has just barely returned so walking is a nightmare

Something must be broken, because that certainly isn't the way pretty much everyone feels about the trigger lol =)

tools required:
needle nose pliers
wire snips (usually part of the needle nose pliers)
allen keys
a pen spring


remove trigger from frame,
remove trigger stop set screw from trigger,
take a spring from a pen cheap pens are the best for this as you dont ruin a nice one,
crimp one end of the spring and bend it so it fits in the hole the trigger stop screw was in (should be a snug fit so it doesnt fall out),
clip it down to length but not too short as it will have little effect on your issue,
replace trigger to frame and make sure the spring rests on the trigger stop pin,
adjust activation screw so it doesnt push the micro switch back from the board,
done.

Another option would be to replace the microswitch on the board with one with a higher activation weight.

Alternatively, you could switch the stock trigger for the Critical trigger, which is supplied with a reverse polarity magnetic return mod.

Still an option..... just not necessarily a cost effective one!
