See, the springs feel light to me too compaired to other small nines like Kel-Tech and Diamondback...

I fired my friend's PF-9 ( he's an ex navy SP and did 10 yrs. NYPD before moving to Az. For the last 15 he's been a property manager and real estate broker), And it felt like I was Pulling the trigger back on a Browning .50 cal that wasn't cleaned for about 10 years....

I was compairing recoil springs but yes its also known to have a less than favorable trigger pull. Fortunantly, there are as many articles on how to improve it as there are days in a year!

No, I made the recoil spring stiffer. 20lbs instead of 16lbs.

Agreed. One of the worst triggers ever. However, still insanely accurate for it's size and that's a big deal with a crap trigger.

Galloway Precision makes a trigger kit, for cheap, that I plan on purchasing to improve upon the stock trigger.

I will eagerly await your update about said trigger kit!
