Magnetic Trigger Kit for UL Frames (DM6 - DM10) Without Paying $16

So you want to get the Critical Magnetic Trigger Kit but don't want to spend $16 on two small pieces of magnets plus a packet of glue? I don't blame you!

Start off by buying a 3/16" dia. x 3/16" thick magnet.

This magnet is for the pocket inside the grip frame where the trigger spring is placed.

Then buy a 3/16" dia. x 1/16" thick magnet.

This magnet is for the trigger.

The last thing you need is some super glue. I used Instant Krazy glue. Be sure the purchase the ones that are liquid, not gel as gel would be too thick for such a small job.

You can purchase all of these at your local hardware store, i.e. Lowe's, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, neighborhood mom & pop, etc. They should have them. If not you can do what I did and purchase them online.

Here's the two magnets I purchased:
http://www.kjmagnetics.com/proddetail.asp?prod=D33
http://www.kjmagnetics.com/proddetail.asp?prod=D31
These are standard N42 grade magnets.

However, if you want to experiment you can purchase the N52 grade which has a stronger polarity.
http://www.kjmagnetics.com/proddetail.asp?prod=D33-N52
http://www.kjmagnetics.com/proddetail.asp?prod=D31-N52

Mix and match to find out which pair of magnets fits you best.


Now that we got materials out of the way, let's talk about installation. If you don't know how to remove the trigger from the grip frame, please refer to the manual and/or stickies.

Start off by getting the both magnets and finding their reverse polarity. What this means is to set them so that they repel each other.

After that has been found, put the 3/16" dia. x 3/16" thick magnet into the spring pocket inside the frame. You don't put any glue for this magnet.

Then get the 3/16" dia. x 1/16" thick magnet, don't forget about reverse polarity, and glue it to the trigger. There's a particular way you have to glue this magnet. Place a small amount of glue below the spring tension hole and place the magnet so it halfway covers up the hole. On a side note, if you've ever opened up your grip frame and pulled the trigger back you'll notice that the pocket and spring tension hole don't line up. That is why this method is required as once the trigger is pulled back, it lines up correctly and is directly in front of the pocket magnet, giving optimum magnetic resistance.

Let it set for at least 5 minutes.

Reinstall the trigger.

Done.


Should you want to ever remove these magnets, simply pry them out with your fingers or pick and clean out the glue residue with nail polish remover.


So let's recap.

Critical Magnet Kit: $16
-
Frame magnet: $0.25
Trigger magnet: $0.19
Glue: $1.00
=
Savings of: $14.56


Sorry there are no actual tutorial pictures, I recently sold my DM9. However, there is also a video tutorial on Youtube which I cannot post without it getting removed but PM me and I will link it to you.

$5 to ship via USPS off that website I provided. And you're not considering how much it would be to ship for the Critical Trigger Kit.

Nicely done zero
the tricky part was to find the right size magnet that would fit the trigger housing.

Nice job.

I put it in the ultimate sticky, but I included the DM6 - DM8. Is there a reason why these guns were not included? I presume it will work on these guns too... since they all have UL frames.

I just wasn't sure about the DM6 - DM8 because I didn't know if the frames had that pocket. Thanks for clearing that up guys.

Erayser, can you change the title for this thread to include all UL frames.

Thanks guys!

52 for sure. Otherwise there is still play in the trigger. 52 feels almost like the stock angel trigger in tension.

Thanks for the feedback Blair!

For those of you who are placing an order off the website I posted, when you checkout and have the option to select a Mail Carrier, the cheapest shipping method would be "USPS Flat Rates, No Tracking" - Standard Shipping at $5.

Nice find. You can also double up the magnets that Radio Shack offers. I wrote up a tutorial on all of this full with pics. I'd hope it would make it to the sticky by now...

Here's the link...
