I bought this new in 2008 from Pyramid. They installed the Air Venturi Ram Air Gas Spring, and I installed an aftermarket Gold 2-stage trigger. The rifle shoots very well with open sites, and, I am enjoying it often. I thought the trigger was pretty nice, until I obtained an AA410 Classic. Wow what a sweet trigger, and what a huge difference in that trigger and the one on my Whisper.
So my question is this, how can I lighted the pull weight? It is like moving a Mack truck compared to the Air Arms trigger. I don't expect it to be the same, but, if I could close the gap between the two, that would be great.
Thanks for any responses or ideas.

Although its inferior design limits what you can achieve with it, proper adjustment can help get what can be got. I put considerable effort into this adjustment guide for the GTX, and most of the tips in it apply reasonably closely to the "other one."

Click on the blue "Adjustment Guide" button just above and to the right of the picture of the GTX.

<p>About all you can do to help the "other" gold trigger is to remove the adjustment screw and carefully file/grind the end so that it is smooth and round, rather than like a screw right out of the bin from the hardware store.  (which is how it comes to you)</p><p>Then make the adjustments as Steve suggests as best you can with what you were given.</p><p>The last link will get you to the Real Golden Trigger.</p><p>Otherwise, make it look as much like the one on the right (which is Steve's GTX GenII) as you can.   It would of course be far easier and wiser to just go with the properly made one next time to start with and avoid all the extra work trying to make it a bit better than it is.</p><p>(picure link was borrowed from one of Steve's posts)</p><p><img alt="[linked image]" src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v398/ ... wedUp1.jpg"></p><p>JBA</p>
