    I don't know if anyone has a crosman springer with the gamo trigger, but if you do then you're familiar with the long trigger pull where you don't really know when the trigger will break.

    This fix is easy, cheap and effective. It doesn't turn it into a match grade trigger, but the length of the trigger pull is shortened considerably and now my gun has a distinct second stage where I can predict the break.

    It is about the only way you can mod the trigger without removing the stock but I suggest people make the effort and do a better mod if possible because that one kinda sux. Plus if adjusted like he said it's also rather dangerous.
    It isn't really a two stage trigger, just a single stage with a lot of empty slop before it, so when adjusted like the vid the sears are actually very close to firing at all times, and considering the sears are rounded and misc other issues, it's not safe to make that stage short.
    I have details on making it very nice if you want to do the work, basically like the GRT but better, and cheaper, possibly free if you have the tools... chevota at hotmail and I'll send it

    I can personally attest that the tutorial Chevota gives away for the asking is some very good info!

    YouTube has a tutorial (audio/visual) on how to adjust the Crosman air rifle trigger.

    I gave the new trigger about 200 shots this weekend. Follow the video to make sure that the safety works.

    The new trigger pull feels exactly like a 2 stage trigger with the longer screw.

    The shorter stock screw was one long mushy pull where the trigger never rebounded when the trigger was partially pulled and released. It would just stay there.

    The new trigger pull will rebound if you partially pull the trigger through the first stage, and then release the trigger (just like real first stage take up). The second stage is a distinct wall, that breaks clean with minimal over travel. It's as if this was the true intent of the original design, but for some reason the Chinese factory decided to use a shorter trigger adjustment screw.

    All you need is a longer screw (look for exact screw in the video) and a phillips screwdriver.
