I was wondering if I could use a straw instead of a BIC pen? You know, on making the AT2K trigger pull shorter?

ALSO: How much does it decrease the actual pull?

No, a straw would not be able to handle the pressure.

You can do what I do, and just use hot glue to reduce the pull. Just squeeze the glue into the spring part, let it harden, then you are done!

About the distance of the spring.

Use two layers of straws then wrap it in duct tape.

I know it's kinda old, but i searched, and couldn't find a sufficient answer.

I can't seem to get the spring off of the firing pin. Is there some specific way to do this? I tried everything - pliers, cutting it, nothing worked.

Haha, I wish I had thought of wire cutters when I removed my spring. Yeah, I just used some pliars and twisted and yanked the thing off; took me about three minutes, though. Good luck!

Pretend the spring is a keychain and the firing pin is a key. Pull out one end of the spring so that the firing pin goes between the outermost coil and the next one, now just spin the spring, voila, easy and painless.

Ok. I got the spring off, put on the piece of bic pen, screwed the case together, and went outside. With a quad 6" PETG turret, it fired pretty well, until i heard a weird squeaking noise when i went over 5-6 pumps. The pump is plugged.

Oh, and i didn't want to start another topic with the same basic name, so I just posted it here.
