Is shimming the only option, other than getting a new spring?

first and formost make sure it's not the hammer by trying to time it out longer (longer trigger pull, release more towards 1/2) and if you can't get it to stop all together than you will likely need a stronger sear spring.

I tried adjusting the hammer lug longer, no luck. Stretching the sear spring didn't work either, nor did trying an S6 hammer.

I will try to find a stronger sear spring.

I gotta look through some old files on my old external hard drive but I used to have the springs dimensions from back in 04. I was never happy with madmen or aka or besales springs in my sliders. I liked em real snappy because I could get them to hold a really good rhythm for me. If I find the spec's I'll get back to this asap

Part of the problem is the Quikfire frame... IIRC, they need a certain kind of lug to work properly, and I've always found non-slotted trigger plates a PITA to time up. I greatly prefer a slotted trigger plate.

Check out Ravi's page, I think there's something on there about it.

Also, it's rare but make sure the backblock is spaced away from the body, and isn't impacting the body when it comes back forward.

I've seen backblocks "smack" the body with enough force to make the hammer lug jump over the sear and fire again. You can correct this by unscrewing the back block further and by unscrewing the pump arm from the ram.

Any idea as to what kind of lug I should be looking for?

Sorry man, I couldn't find the data I was looking for! I know the springs I picked up were just a little bit longer and a smidge stiffer... but that was all back in 2003. I have put a lot of useless crap in my noodle since then! Good luck man!
