    Well I've had my CP 1 nearly a week and enjoying it but I wasn't happy with the trigger.
    Following some good advice I decided to take it apart and polish a few things.
    First the trigger grub screw came out and turned round. I also removed the edge from the grub screw but really need a magnifying glass to do a better job!
    Next the sear plate/hammer latch pin. I started with wet n dry 80 and worked thru to 1200. Shiny!
    Then I removed the hammer and repeated at each end. Nearly as shiny!

    Parts laid out prior to assembly…

    It took me two goes because I forgot to locate the cocking bolt in with the hammer! Doh!

    I also decided to remove the rear open sight and relocate the red dot as far back as possible. This gives it a much better feel and balance. (And makes pellet loading a hell of a lot easier!!!)

    I have adjusted most of the play/take up from the trigger with a fairly short pull but it is still a bit heavy for my liking. I plan on rounding the trigger grub screw at some point.

    Just wondering if anyone else has experimented with shorter/lighter springs??

    I can feel my aim wobbling with the pull just prior to release. Any more suggestions?

    There is a guy on Faceache, John (Jon?) Small who makes all sorts of bits and bobs for these. He does a small kit of trigger mods, bushes and the like and a lovely brass shoe that covers the trigger blade and makes it much more comfy to use.
    I've got one of these in .25, seriously thinking of having one in .177

    His stuff is good and comes with full instructions. The replacement spring guide and trigger mod are an immediate must for a new CP1 as well as the trigger shoe. I fitted a set to my .25 the moment I got it. I also have a .177 CP1 with similar fittings but not from Jon. The .177 runs at about 4 ft/lb but in .22 or .25 they seem to push out more...I must chrono the .25 at some point!

    I've been playing with the .25 since I've got it as the barrel was (swear word). It's almost at a usable point now, but I'm still not happy with the lead in. Needs more fettling or a new barrel!
    But the .177 multishot really appeals.. but not until next payday, spent far too much this month already!

    Latest tweak to the trigger.

    I have replaced the original grub screw (left) with a stainless pointed and slightly longer grub screw (right).

    Definitely lightened things a tad and have now adjusted almost all of the creep out but still want it lighter.
