Crosman 2300S custom shop trigger
« on: July 05, 2022, 04:26:42 PM »
Is the trigger included with the 2300S worth saving with polishing, etc., or is it best to just bite the pellet and install the 1701 unit?

Thanks - Dave B

1701
I have the original trigger
I put the super sear in and it performed very nice but
The safety didn’t work
I took out the super sear and the safety works properly

I just plink with the 2300 so the original trigger is fine for me.

Thanks. I have a roller trigger I bought some time ago and I welcome the info on the supersear as that might have been my next option. Perhaps just best to get out the 600 grit and polish things up, then call it finished.  Thanks for the input.  I hope to be up and running for the 5m target summer event. If not with the 2300, I’ll use another pistol in my collection.

I have the that very combo: Super Sear and stainless Son Cothran Roller Trigger.

It’s a very light single-stage with no grit and slack.

The Super Sear is fine.
But, as I said it eliminates the safety.
At my age, the pistol may soon go to someone else who might expect the safety to work.
The original sear is fine too and the pistol shoots as well as my IZZY and 6M..

My build with the Super Sear and DC Roller Trigger.

Well, almost all of the parts are DC:

Nice pistol cross liner!  Where did you get the grips?  Dave B

From Vernon Austin.

I have a couple of his, and they are works of art.

He makes the best-fitting grips, and I do own some from the other popular maker in Texas (?).

No comparison, really.

I gave away 2 pairs of Corcoran grips to 2 individuals.

They're nice but far from equal to VA grips.

There was even an AGN guy who said that his VA grips are comparable/better to/than his ultra expensive German Rink/Formgriffe grips.

If this statement was directed to me, then you might want to try VA grips for comparison.

I find Corcoran grips just OK in fit and finish--nothing special.

In fact, I still have a pair in my parts box.

Yep.
Directed at you and everyone else who thinks their opinion counts.
I do not read reviews on products I order and I don’t care what or who someone thinks is the best at something.
