    I found this spring kit while geeking around last night...

    http://erniethegunsmith.com/catalog/i38.html

    Does anyone have any first hand expierance with it or the seller? I really dont have any issues with the factory trigger but figured for 6.95 it may be worth a try.

    Back when Al Timmney was doing triggers for 870s and 1100s, he would supply three springs with them to set the pull at different weights. I'm sure the same springs are avaliable from gunpart suppliers such as Brownell's.

    I TRIED ONE BUT WAS TOO LIGHT FOR MY TASTE. AFTER I PUT SOME 7 1/2 SHOT INTO THE FRONT WALL OF THE BUNKER! I NOW JUST CLIP OFF A RING OR 2 FROM THE STOCK SPRING TILL I GET THE PULL I LIKE.

    Just bought two from him through eBay. Fast shipping. Springs look very nice and very easy to install.

    I have two newish 1100's (28 & .410) that were VERY difficult to shoot at skeet. I've shot skeet for over 30 years and I was quite perplexed. (I knew it wasn't me because I could pick up my Model 32 and shoot very well!!) These two guns were going to be sold as I shot them so poorly. A club member noticed my "timing" was all off and suggested that I should look into the trigger pull weights as the newer 1100's tended to be quite heavy.

    Good ole' Santa brings me a Lyman Electronic Digital Trigger Pull Gauge just in time:

    Factory spring in .410 - 5lbs 5 oz. avg.

    Ernies replacement spring - 4lbs. 4 ozs. avg.

    Ernies spring with 1/2 coil cut off - 3lbs 3 ozs. avg.

    I also bought a "Patriot" brand spring from him and installed it in the 28 ga. Trigger pull went from 5lbs 3ozs. avg. to 3 lbs. 3ozs. avg. with no spring mods.

    Exactly what I wanted! Trigger pulls are now very smooth and I'm back to crushing targets.

    Money well spent for either brand spring, in my opinion.

    You can also trim coils off the factory spring as long as you don't make it too short.

    This is just my experience and I am in no way connected to the seller of these springs.

    I'm happy.

    Bob

    Thanks for the replies I orderd one last night. I cant really go wrong for $9.00 delivered. If I dont like it I can always pull it.

    Model32 ....I installed the spring tonight and got about the same results...lost 1.1-1.3 lbs. on avg. over the pulls. Im going to try it like that for now.

    I may order one for my hunting gun as well.
