    I reckon this isn't a popular idea as these triggers are already great but I would like to make mine about 30-50% lighter than factory. Is this doable or is the trigger as light as a bullpup can go?

    FX's video of Ernest reassembling the wildcat  made it look easy to get access to the main coil spring. If that one is made lighter will the trigger still work?

    If it were me I would order a replacement spring or two from FX. Then you can experiment all you like. If it does not work just pop in a new spring and you are back to shooting. Good luck!

    so I looked and found it is a .5mm wire in 3mm diameter in 15mm length if that is right you can order spring from China on Ebay I have done just that with great service

    so .2 mm wire is going to be too lite but .3mm and .4mm would be a good choice

    but of course you could find said spring else where and you might need 10 but metric spring are hard to find and if you do find one here in the states the shipping eats you alive and that is why I use sellers from China on Ebay for those hard to find metric parts

    of course I could have the spring size wrong but what ever it is just go down the wire size instead of cutting and stretching

    Find and watch the video Ernest put out. I followed his instructions and my widlcat has a super light trigger. Just take off the stock and then its just 2 set screws.

    BZapp7, the answer to your question is yes the trigger on your Wildcat can be set lighter than it comes from the factory, but the spring in the trigger assembly has nothing to do with it. So start out by leaving your spring alone! This is easily accomplished by adjusting the two screws on the forward end of the "triggerbase" which is located on the Wildcat parts diagram at location "A25". Before you start adjusting your screws you might want to take a close up picture of their current settings, and take careful notes on how much you turn each one so you can retrace your footsteps if necessary.

    The FX manual says that screw G deals with the resistance of the second stage. 

    Not trying to be a smart alec here, and I don't have a gauage for weight, but personally, I can't see or feel how turning that screw does anything for + or – resistance or weight. Please explain how if you belive it does.

    It seems to me that the spring itself gives all the resistance.
