VZ-58 Trigger experiment
« on: September 30, 2018, 06:04:22 PM »
I just purchased the CNC Warrior replacement FCG (trigger, sear, disconnector, disconnector spring and disconnector pin) for my VZ58. Then using emery paper, I polished all the contact services. Once that was done, I sent all the FCG components (including pins) to be coated in MicroSlick. MicroSlick increases lubrication and reduces friction (among other things). Once I get them back I will reinstall the trigger and measure the trigger pull as well as post the results. I am hoping this reduces the trigger pull.

Experiment complete. All FCG components were coated in MicroSlick. Using my Lyman digital trigger gauge, I test fired my new FCG 10 times with an average pull weight of 4.66 pounds. Czechpoint states the spec trigger pull weight is 5.51-5.95 pounds. I never bothered to test the original trigger weight so I have nothing to compare it to. What are some of your trigger pull weights?

Since you have no baseline measurments, all your efforts could have made it worse, just changed the tactility, or nothing.-- let alone effects on reliability over long term (FCG wear)

Grade D on the experiment, only because you put in the time, F otherwise. ;)

Using these numbers, you likely shaved 1 lb from the trigger pull.   Keep us posted on reliability once you put it through its paces.  Looking forward to the results.
