demon trigger adjustments

i shot one a week ago and the trigger was good, just got my own and now im not a fan of this trigger. how have you adjusted your trigger to make it maybe more snappy or more comfortable etc. maybe just ways you made it better, or are you using stock?

Take out the spring and you will have one of the best triggers!

For resale or just in general to take it out is t easy where I'd be able to put it back in and not have to like break it out. Also is this better than turning down the magnets strength. I read somewhere that you can just adjust the magnets power

You can put the spring back in as long as you don't lose it. You just remove the plate above the trigger and the spring will come out and you can put it back if you don't like how the trigger feels without the spring.

I hate guns that have had the spring taken out, it makes the trigger very sloppy in my opinion.

Just use the adjustment set screws until you've reached an adjustment that feel good to you. For some reason, they come very poorly adjusted from the factory, they probably just get put in and shipped.

Do you know how to adjust the magnet?

Read the Manuel, saw the screw for the magnet tried an allen in it and my allen wouldn't link on and it just rotates and doesn't screw tighter or looser so for the magnet portion I didn't know if you were supposed to go inside the gun to adjust the magnet or something since I've never had a magnet trigger.

Also this thread was started to learn about people's trigger experience and preference and I would've never learned about the spring taking out without asking.

The trigger breakdown is in the manuel with an explode view of spring and plate to remove. But each to his own i guess.

Okay, try a different allen. Obviously your allen is wrong, or bad, or the screw is stripped. all trigger adjustments, including the magnet screw are done from the outside, on the trigger.

Ok I'll try some more, I just tried to use all the Allen's and didn't have luck. Maybe it's just stuck because its magnetized and holding but not sure. Prob should've said I tried that first, thanks though

The screw is not stuck because it's magnetized...

What would it be stuck to, the aluminum trigger which is not magnetic?

You likely don't have the correct sized allen.

In an off topic side note, can I ask how old you are?

The allens that come with the gun DON'T fit the grub screws for the trigger....we just recently got 10 Demons, and the few people I have asked about adjusting the trigger all said the same thing...obviously I figured it out and grabbed another one out allen junk box I have.

But back to the original question, the first thing I do with every gun is chuck the spring...especially in a gun like this that has both magnets and a spring. Even with the spring out, I still had to adjust the magnet screw out quite a bit to get the trigger how I like it.

Yeah same time we got ours...maybe it was a mistake...either way...just find a key that fits it and make it the way that feels best to you.

My solution to the terrible trigger was to buy an Acid Customs trigger ... I owned a Demon previous to this one and left the trigger stock and it was horrendous. Good thing I play PSP otherwise I would barely be able to shoot the 15 bps cap that you need for semi.
