Trigger Sear Spring tc encore prohunter g2 tss
Fits Encore, ProHunter, Endeavor, FX and G2. For the G2 application only be sure to trim about 1/64" off the curved end of spring. I do this with a grinder. If you were to order a G2 spring kit we do this for you.
TC Encore Custom Trigger Springs Bellm Custom Encore/G2 Trigger/Sear Springs are our own custom design with a different shape from the stock spring pictured on the right. The top arm on our spring shown left is shaped to give more travel to the sear to help insure it rebounds to "half cock" when your finger is removed from the trigger, which is absolutely essential for safe operation of the Encore. If the hammer does not rebound to half cock, it can rest on the firing pin permitting the gun to fire if it is dropped or struck on the hammer. The shape of our spring is especially needed at lighter pull weights using the lighter weight springs offered here. Encore/G2 Trigger/Sear Springs are offered as various assortments at a reduced price per spring or as individual springs at $6.95 each. We also have several value packs available to give you an assortment to try. Why an assortment of springs instead of just one spring for the weight I want? The reason is two fold. One, the same spring installed in different frames will give different pull weights depending on the component parts in the individual frame. THE WEIGHTS INDICATED ARE ONLY ROUGH, COMPARATIVE APPROXIMATIONS. Two, while you can alter the sear angle and thus alter the pull weight, there is a limit as to how far you can go, and this type of work is often beyond the scope of abilities of the average shooter/hobbyist. Having a range of spring tensions makes the job much easier to do and as a third reason, it lets you quickly change the pull weight when shooting conditions require it.Even doing trigger jobs professionally, I rely heavily on the range of spring tensions to get the pull weight the owner specifies. Once I have things honed, I select the spring I think will give the weight wanted. If it does not produce the desired pull weight, I simply install another spring. There is approximately a 1/2 pound difference in pull weight from one spring tension to the next in the same frame. Thus if a 2 pound pull is wanted and I am getting a 2 1/2 pound pull with a #3 spring, I replace it with a #4 to drop the pull weight a half pound. This system works very nicely and makes doing a trigger job much, much easier for the average individual and professional alike. Thus, I suggest you bracket the pull weight you want with a 3 spring assortment with one spring heavier and one spring lighter than what you want for a final pull weight.What do you do with the extra springs? I suggest you help a buddy out with his frame for starters, but even if you never use the extra springs, using a 3 spring assortment as an example, your cost for the springs is less than 1/2 of what a basic trigger job by a qualified professional normally costs, especially if you have to ship it. And of course, if you are a professional, you realize the benefit of having the right supplies on hand when the next job comes in!Please note that these are custom springs. They are shaped differently from the standard factory springs to give a more positive effect rebounding the hammer.You will find there is a wonderful trigger pull hiding in the Encore frames, and the Bellm Custom Encore Trigger/Sear Springs are essential to your best shooting.(Go to the menu bar to the left and click on either of the drop down options under TC Encore Custom Trigger Springs.)
WARNING, if the hammer does not rebound to "half cock" when you remove your finger from the trigger after pulling it, you must either go to a heavier trigger/sear spring or you must shorten the hammer spring. If the hammer does not rebound, it will be resting on the firing pin and result in an accidental discharge of the gun if it is dropped, struck on the hammer, or the hammer partially withdrawn and released.

#7 for fine tuning to the lightest pull weight advisable, .029"
Regardless of which spring is installed, when the trigger is pulled and the hammer drops, the hammer must rebound to the "half-cock" position when the finger is removed from the trigger so that the hammer is not resting on the firing pin. Failure to verify if this function occurs reliably can result in the firearm firing if it is dropped or the hammer is snagged and pulled to the rear. Additional spring tension may be required to insure the hammer rebounds to half-cock, or the hammer spring can be shortened slightly to reduce the tension on the hammer. Again, these are things covered in our updated Encore and G2 Trigger Job Instructions printed shop manual listed in the menu bar to the left.
Please Note: These are custom springs, and they are shaped differently to help insure the hammer rebounds reliably with lighter spring tensions. So don't be concerned if they don't look exactly like the factory spring you take out..... they aren't supposed to! An assortment of springs in the approximate weight range you want lets you pinpoint the pull weight without having to modify parts to do so. Simply drop in a heavier or lighter spring as desired. This is much more satisfactory than altering the sear angle to change the pull weight. An assortment also lets you quickly change the pull weight according to your shooting requirements, which might be a 1 1/2 pound pull for target/varmint in warm weather, and a 3 pound trigger during cold weather hunting seasons for example. You can change the spring alone in just minutes without completely disassembling the Encore frame. Simply remove the trigger guard, and trigger. Then push the sear pivot pin out far enough to change the spring, and reassemble with the spring of your choice. The tools listed in this section are "must have" items.
#1 for 3 1/2 - 4 pound pull,
#2 for 3 - 3 1/2 pound pull,

#7 for fine tuning to the lightest pull weight advisable.
NOTE: SPRINGS #4 THROUGH #7 OFTEN REQUIRE ALTERING THE SEAR NOTCH BY ABOUT 10 DEGREES TO APPROXIMATELY AN 80 DEGREE ANGLE FOR THE HAMMER TO STAY COCKED. USE THE 80 DEGREE DIAMOND EZE LAP TO RECUT THE SEAR NOTCH AND ONE OF THE MATCHING 80 DEGREE HARD ARKANSAS STONES TO POLISH THE SEAR NOTCH. THE TRIANGULAR ARKANSAS STONES CAN ALSO BE USED FOR POLISHING THE SEAR NOTCH; HOWEVER, IT IS HARDER TO CONTROL THE SEAR ANGLE USING THE TRIANGULAR STONE AND NOT RECOMMENDED.
