Question about trigger re-enforcement

Post by solar00 » Thu May 15, 2008 9:27 pm

Hi,

Last year I successfully re-enforced the trigger of my 4100 after it broke(and it still works)

Do I need to re-enforce the trigger of a CPS2000 as well? and can this one be re-enforced the same way as the 4100 (aluminium strips)

I ask this because on the pictures of cps2000 and 2500's this trigger also looks very fragile (and on isoaker a picture of a cps2500 with broken trigger)

If you have any worries that the trigger might break, I would suggest reinforcing. There is no disadvantage to reinforcement other than perhaps a poor fit after reinforcement (which can be fixed), but you might have to reinforce the trigger eventually anyway, so it might save time. ;)

Would you mind sending me some pictures of your reinforced trigger for the page? I've been trying to get as many different versions of the same repair/modification on the page as possible to help people out.

Well, when I look at the trigger it looks normal and I like to leave it in the original state as long as possible. (I check it after using it)
When I see that it's weakening (white plastic) then I will reinforce it.

But if I need to do the repair I'll send you the pictures.
