    I got the baker trigger installed and tuned, its 100000 times better than Crosman’s trigger. I don’t have a gauge but I’d say 1-2 lb trigger pull now. I also got a Hill hammer spring and I upped the power a little bit. Now my groups at 20 yards and 30 yards are well under .75” 20 yards is usually one hole now. This is with crappy Walmart pellets too. I’ll have to test to 50 yards to see if it holds groups still.

    How much more power do you get with the new spring as compared to the factory ? I have a Gen 1 and want to pump up my power by about another 50 fps. Great gun but low on power !!!

    I will have to get the dust off my chrono and find out. I just turned in the new hammer spring 3.5 full revolutions and it was grouping pretty well at that setting. I could probably get more power out of it but I’m just shooting Crosman pellets out of it.

    Matt,

    Any updates? The best I can tell you have a Gen 2 I was curious if you had tried adjusting the stock setup or went straight to the upgraded spring? Also I recently tried the Air Arms Diabolo Field Heavy 10.3 with very good results.

    I had to put my .02. If you order through crosman you can use the discount code. I got the gen2 for 224.99 plus shipping. I wanted a cheap rifle to throw around. The only mods are two 4/40 screws for the trigger, tweaked the sear spring a little, added memory foam to the buttstock and added a rail adapter to the front swivel mount. I thought the gamo urban was a really good budget rifle when it was 199.99, but the gen 2 fortitude is far better.

    I can say that I still really enjoy my fortitude gen2.  It may not be my most accurate airgun but it's just a hoot to shoot.  I will certainly take it out squirreling this season.  I'm getting decent groups at 35 yards with the JSB Hades pellets which is as far as I'll shoot in my woods.  It's a keeper for sure.
