first range trip with HBI trigger and spring
« on: September 12, 2017, 09:32:58 PM »
Took The Scorpion to the range Sunday for the first time with the new HBI trigger and spring installed in the new Scorpion replacement trigger pack. WOW what a different feel it has and so much lighter that stock spring. The trigger felt great. Should have done it a long time ago.

yeah man that is probably the best $8 investment you'll put into the scorpion, aside from the $8 worth of ammo down the pipe  ;D

I was wondering how much it actually improved it. SOLD!

My trigger pull went from 7 pounds to 5 pounds. Well worth $8. Be sure to watch the v2 video with painted parts

Might as well do an HBI forward trigger shoe while you have it apart. Its a 2 minute job with a vise and punch. That little bit of extra leverage, combined with the spring, make for a good overall combat trigger.

Yep, best $9 spent on upgrade parts.

My first trigger pack went from 10lbs to just over 5lbs.

My replacement trigger pack went from just over 11lbs to about 6.5lbs.

No other parts were changed, so that's an honest 5lbs off the trigger with just a spring set change.

Any issues with light primer strikes on hard primers?

I had an issue with the trigger not resetting.  I had to polish all the contact points of the trigger group and now I have no further issues.

Did you by chance install a new trigger shoe?

The hammer spring doesn't change, so there would be no change in primer strikes.

That trigger shoe pin can cause issies if not perfectly flush.

I adore my HBI spring and Theta Forward trigger.

Use a small c-clamp or a large paper clip to hold the spring down when installing.  The guy on the HBI video just used his fingers to hold the spring down, I could not do that.  But holding the spring down with a clamp allows me to do a trigger job in less than 5 minutes.

Can you elaborate more on how you did it? I have no vise and when I was testing on how to do this, the spring felt to stiff for me to bend using a small screwdriver with my left hand while holding and aligning the connector with my right hand.
