    My trigger seems to be a little loose in my MX-8, any ideas ?

    I guess I have to ask "what is the last thing you did to the gun?" I shoot an old MX-3 Special for doubles and there is nothing loose and the trigger group is removed after each event - plus cleanings.

    possibly the plunger spring that retains the trigger assembly has broken, or it's so dirty it doesn't move into proper position.

    The whole trigger group is loose or just the trigger guard?

    Reverse the plunger spring if not already done.
