Hello all. Lurked around for a while and enjoy the site.

I've got a 42 Ishevsk that I have decided to work on a bit. I decided to try te sear bending technique, and got the trigger pull to a place I like. It now breaks with almost no creep at all, and while heavy, it is consistent and usable. In the process of getting it adjusted, the trigger itself has become loose, traveling freely and flopping around when not under pressure against the sear; not. Big deal, but I would like to install a return spring, so the trigger can be somewhat like a 2-stage, and will not flop around.

My question to those who have installed such a spring: what kind works best, and where did you obtain the spring from? I've heard of using paperclios and safety pins, but is there something better?

Thanks in advance for any responses.

The springs are not that expensive, my Finns don't have a spring and have no trigger flop, I would research hard some pics of Finnish sears and see if you can fix it without a spring.

I'm using them and can vouch for them...they're not a magic bullet for a good trigger but they take out that slop.

+1 on these springs, inexpensive but very high quality. I have them on several of my mosins.

Thank you for the headsup.

I have experimented with several materials and springs from around the house, but the ones linked above look like they are the ticket. There's a gun show nearby this weekend, so if I don't find a spring there (or something else to distract me :-P) I may order a couple of those.

Thanks.

Will the Finn spring help with trigger creep?What I mean is the travel that the trigger has until it starts to feel like its going to release the firering pin. Mine seem to have a long travel until there is a load on the trigger. Thanks

I have a Finn sear/bolt stop and its my opinion that the trigger felt better but it still had a long pull, I think that's what your asking. I have one and a trigger slack spring for sale, I didn't like it (them) in my PU sniper.
