I have recreated a nite finder rifle from KBarker's pictures, videos, and his whole post. If you are looking at this chances are you know what I'm talking about. Well the only problem I'm having is the trigger latch not being able to hold against the power of the new longer spring. Any ideas on how to make the trigger more powerful to hold against the spring?

Replace the catch spring with a stronger one.

Hey...I got a crazy idea: how about you stop all that sigging stuff? It's not even my thread and it annoys me.

I've tried that, but it didn't work. I have seen your post on a Nite Finder rifle. And you say you found a "beastly catch spring". Any chance of the specs of that spring or details on where you found it?

Either find a stronger one or add two. You can find small springs in "click" pens but I'm not sure if their strength will suffice in your situation.

It was a stronger catch spring from another model of a Nite Finder.

You'll need a bit more than that.

I have seen a post of your nite finder mod. And I noticed that you put a "beastly catch spring" in it. Where did you find this catch spring? And if it's a specific area, then what are the specs on this catch spring so that I may look it up?

Sorry, it was from a gun. An older gun, for that matter. I got it from a sharpshooter 1. They have insane catch springs, so I took it, cut it in half, and used each half in a gun. It still holds strong.

You could also try using a torsion spring like this:

I've always used the stock springs in Daedalus. Just to make public what I PM'd you, just cut the notch where the trigger latches deeper. That's what I did, worked fine.

EDIT: It looks like this:

You can see the new notch that was cut farther up and deeper than the original. Its better than the MS Paint I PM'd you.

This is what a torsion spring is:

The way you have the tortion spring set up in that image won't work. If you put it that way, it will keep constant pressure keeping the catch plate up, not allowing it to catch. You'd have to reverse it.
