If you go left to right, you may be able to leave the safety click plate in place. Not a big deal either way though..............chim

I finished up the trigger job on my BM Contour Lite yesterday. Big difference in the feel to the gun now, I'm alot happier shooting it now. Thanks to everyone that posted pics and verbal how-to's...special thanks to Chim for the step by step breakdown pics. I was getting real sour trying to put the grips back on and keep everyhting in place at the same time.

I wanted to try to just reverse the spring and did so, but how do you get the short end to tuck back into the rear of the frame like in the picture below?

So do you'all think my Buck Mark will work at the range?

I have a new Camper and the insides don't look exactly like some of the photos.

And on the right you can see from which side the long end comes in the lightened version.


It was so long ago that I bended the first one I had and when I ordered a replacement spring, it was without bends. I didn't bend the replacement at all since I wanted to see how it works without bending and it worked great. The bends are only to get the spring to have less pressure on it. But there is a limit how much you can lighten it. Basically just turning it over () is the trick that makes the biggest difference.


There are no stupid questions, better ask than be sorry later

The spring should not be sticking up when you get it done. Heggis just left it that way when he took the picture so he wouldn't have to go through the trouble of putting it all the way back in with a bunch of tension..

I have a camper as well, and when you get done it should look like the one that says "lightened" with neither end of the spring sticking out.

Hope this helps.

Well I'll do a step by step instruction, maybe it helps.

Okay this is what we start with





First push the pin out to get the spring out




Then pull the spring out with pliers




This is the way it's originally there




And this is the way we want it to be...




Now I use the punch to help to get the spring back in place. (dangit out of focus)




First the long end goes down




Now keep the punch in place and use the pliers to get the short end where it belongs




Position the punch over the pin hole




Then slowly pull the punch out Don't pull it completely out. Let the other end to lower to the point where you can insert the pin.

Now push the pin while at the same time pull the punch out.




Now pull the punch completely out while keeping pressure on the pin.




You can help the spring up with pliers and the pin will go back into its place nicely




Now just check that the long end is in the V-groove of the sear and then time to test it

Good job with the step by step Heggis - thanks!

I actually got to that point, using the pin instead of the punch you used, to hold the spring and inserting the longer portion before the shorter. I got it in twice but the hammer was then frozen, so I must have done something wrong.

I'll try it again.

Just check that the long end is in the V groove, if it goes somewhere else it might get stuck somewhere... Been there done that etc Just use the pliers to move the long end around it wont hurt the spring that much.

The punch is easier when dealing with the "full" power spring.

I got it in there but the trigger pull was very heavy. Too heavy. I took the short end "out" and left it that way at the range and every 10 round mag of cci sv I had one "double" and one failure to engage the sear. Trigger pull is very light though.

Which way do you have the spring in there? Factory or lightened? Can you take pictures of your spring?

Those failures are due to leaving the short end of the spring up. The spring doesn't have enough power to engage the sear fast enough etc. Also while leaving the spring up it will get between slide and body and can do damage there, get stuck etc. Please don't ruin your gun and shoot with it not in the slot.

I put it in reversed - lightened. The trigger pull was very heavy as I said, so I may need to move that longer spring around to get it seated in there like you suggested.

Don't plan on shooting it again with the spring out. The spring looks like your pictures - before the bends. Relooked at your pics and I still can't figure out where to bend it though.

The bends are not necessary. Atleast not always The point of the bends are that the long end of the sear spring doesn't contact the sear until from the V-groove. If it touches from the upper part of the sear it won't have enough power to engage the sear fast enough. Bends in the short are just to make it fit the back slot better and to adjust the amount of pressure the spring has. The long ones bends affect this too though.

My current springs legs are straight if you look it from the side. -> Picture. And it just fits in there without any bends. And with that the triggerpull is 2,6lbs.

I got it in there no problem. I have no idea what the trigger pull is though.

Anyone want to loan their gauge?
