  1. I just bought another Stock II, and I did a trigger job as a hobby and to educate myself about the gun. Joe at PD did the trigger work on my first gun. Anyway, new parts: - Titan Hammer - Bolo - Xtreme 1 piece sear - PD reduced power trigger return spring - PD reduced power sear spring - PD optimized FP spring I polished everything per the great videos by Memphis Mechanic. I mostly used a dremel and metal polish, but occasionally used some fine grinding stones with the dremel. The trigger is pretty good, except it occasionally (maybe 20% of the time) sticks at the very beginning of the DA pull, adding 1-2 pounds to the pull. It's like the safety is on but slips off after you pull hard enough. Right now, it's actually impossible for the safety to be on because I need to either take some material off the 1 piece sear leg or off the cam on the safety lever. At first I thought it was the plunger under the trigger bar. I disassembled that, re-polished and lubed everything, but that wasn't it. Then I thought maybe the 1 piece sear was sticking (since it feels like the safety is on when it's sticking). I disassembled that, re-polished and lubed everything, but that wasn't it either. I'm out of ideas right now. I'm running a heavy hammer spring (17lbs, as long as it's smooth, I don't really care about a heavier DA, and I like knowing it will set off anything, every time). SA is just over 3lbs DA is just over 8lbs when it doesn't stick. When installing the bolo, I had to take off about .020 off the inner curve per PD instructions to get the bolo to engage the trigger bar. I didn't need to do any other adjustments. Thanks for the help!
  2. I just got off the phone with Art at Elftmann. He is going to send me a new trigger and a return label for the old trigger. But I get the new trigger before having to return the old one. I'm very impressed with Elftmann's customer service so I wanted post my experience here. If you've never used an Elftmann trigger before, you just don't know what you're missing. I first tried them because of this write up: http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2016/04/jeremy-s/ar-15-drop-in-trigger-roundup/. The break is super crisp with zero creep. The reset is amazingly short. The pull is easily adjustable from about 2.5 to 4.5 lbs. I can't imagine how to make a trigger any better.
  3. Hello everyone, I put a Ar10 Elftmann Match trigger in my Sig MPX (Gen 2) a few days ago. The first day when I tried to zero it, the trigger failed to reset a few times. I have it set at about 4lbs, and I followed the installation instructions carefully, so I don't think it's user error. I tried manipulating the trigger with the upper off so I could see what is happening. I found the hammer was getting caught on the disconnector. After cycling it a few times, the problem went away so I assumed it was just new and needed to be worked in. Now however, it's impossible to fire the MPX quickly. I tried firing 1 shot, quickly releasing the trigger and pulling it again as fast as possible. The trigger was dead on the 2nd pull as if I failed to reset it properly, however after waiting about 3 seconds with the trigger still pulled, the MPX fired. So I believe the hammer is still getting caught on the disconnector and if you wait long enough, it slips free. For some reason, it only happens when I'm trying to run the trigger fast. The fastest it's ever shot is a 0.17 split. If I run the trigger faster than that, the hammer is gets caught on the disconnector. If I run it slower, it works fine. There are Youtube videos where people file down the contact points, but I'm hesitant to do that. I'll call Elftmann tomorrow, but has anyone else had this problem? Suggestions? Thanks for the help!

  4. I got the Double Alpha grips (http://benstoegerproshop.com/double-alpha-academy-daa-cz-sp01-shadow-cz75-series-aluminum-grips/) for my Shadow 2. The grips are thicker than stock, and the stock screws hold them on by only a few threads. If you don't tighten the grips tightly, they will slide forward slightly and impede the mag release button from pressing all the way, and your mags won't drop. While trying to tighten the grips tighter, I threaded out the screws (since only a few threads are catching. Question: Did anyone else have this problem? What was your solution? Can anyone recommend a longer/stronger screw that works for the Shadow 2 grips? I see this (http://benstoegerproshop.com/cgw-cz-grip-screw-by-cajun-gun-works/) but don't know if it works for the Shadow 2. Thanks for the help! Kurt
