Alleviating the INSANE trigger bounce?

So I've picked up an Empire Mini, and I like it for the most part except for how the trigger bounces all over hell. I was told to play with the set screws, but I put in the designated allen key, started turning, and the cheap screw stripped right there, I tried to change the activation screw to the same effect leaving me with ONE screw on my stock trigger.

What do? Should I just pull both magnets and modify it for a spring?

Does the board have a denounce setting?

Buy a CP trigger. They have already gone through the trouble for you.

I don't see how CP would have fixed the issue unless I get a CP rake trigger which I am NOT going to get (I HATE their rake triggers) and I don't see a way they could have done it with the sling triggers unless they used a more powerful magnet.

EDIT: Nvm, it's on a set screw. But I still like the stock trigger, just not the amount of bounce it has, I also would LOVE to not have to buy a new trigger since I'm getting a Z2 and Reactor 4 tank soon anyway.

Yes, it does, but it doesn't do anything since the trigger is just really floppy. For example, when I bring my gun up at the horn the trigger's own weight will cause it to fire.

Hmm. I could have sworn both CP triggers used springs instead of the magnets for resistance. I could be wrong, I went with something else with a much more powerful magnet.

Well, my experience with CP and their triggers has been less than satisfactory too. I mean they work, but the spring for one in my Ion died relatively fast.

Anyway, I think that since I set the rear distance set screw pretty far (The trigger pull is nice and short) I'll be able to just put some resin in the frame magnet cavity and set the magnet on that putting it much closer to the one on the trigger. If that fails I'll just mod it for a spring return.
