C&S trigger spring kits

Just a quick question, really:



I recently purchased the Cylinder & Slide #CS025B trigger pull reduction spring kit for my BHP. I noted that the #CS025A kit, for '91s and earlier, comes with a new trigger return spring, while mine does not. Can someone tell me why this is, if there's any need/desire for a lighter spring in the later models, and if so, where I might get one?



Thanks in advance,



-- Sam

C&S trigger spring kits

Hello Sam,



When FN added the firing pin block to the late model MKIIs and their new MKIIIs, they also added a spring under the sear lever in order to keep the paddle end of the new (Type II) sear lever against the firing pin to block it unless the trigger was activated. So, in an effort to off-set the extra pull that the newly added sear lever spring created, and to keep a decent trigger pull, they lightened the trigger spring, hence the 3 coil spring that came in your Silver Chrome. The original heavier trigger spring is a 2 coil design that's made outta heavier gauge wire.



You already have the lighter spring, but most guys actually prefer the heavier original 2 coil spring because it offers a quicker more positive reset.
