trigger pull variables

I picked up a used automag classic in the BST several months ago. I'm liking it but one thing I notice is the trigger pull is wayyy different from my old classic. My old classic that I bought brand new around 2001-2002, had a very quick, snappy, crispy trigger pull. This classic I'm using now, has a much lighter, much less snappy trigger pull. It is very nice, I want to say it's almost like shooting an electro (but not really walkable), I can shoot it really really fast. But it is also much easier to short stroke, and in a string of shots there's usually at least one little guy that just flops out the barrel and goes 10 feet, and chops are more common since it's a level 7.

I'm just wondering what's up with this, I guess it has to do with how the valve is tuned? Is there some way I could change it back to the snappy trigger pull if I wanted to? The trigger pull is crazy, I'm almost suspicious there is a ULT in there. Oh yeah and my safety doesn't work, so I have to keep my fingers not even close to the trigger or it will accidentally fire if I tap it too hard.

do you know what kind of valve you have, and what trigger frame you have?

are you running co2 or HPA? Lots of times if you can put a 1000-1200psi into a played with classic you can get most of the snappiness back and still keep most of the nice trigger pull. That aside sounds like it could possibly be a z-valve or a ult like you thought. Could have one of the goofier trigger jobs they use to do back in the day... which were great till they wore your sear. Does your safety not work or does pushing it on or off change how the trigger feels?

Pictures?

In addition to what M98 says above, different trigger frames will give you a different trigger feel. Also, double triggers feel different than singles.

I have noticed that all of my valves have their own personality. None of them feel the same in the same setup.

I have tried it with both the single CF frame, and the intelliframe. Same story with both. Ninja HPA, classic valve. I don't think the safety in either position affects the trigger pull, it just doesnt activate the safety and I can shoot in either position.

I'll see if I can get some pics soon...

Might just be your On/Off, maybe the current one is a different on/off than you used to have, or perhaps it's more worn in.
also sounds like your trigger rod is a bit too long if your safety isn't working right.

Do you have any other mags or parts you could use to fiddle with?

just a hp ninja or a SHP? I put my SHP tank on my classic valve and it was like bringing a whole new pony to the racetrack.

OK, I think someone was right about the trigger pin being too long. I think it is just about touching the trigger.



pics of internals incoming
