I've got to stop posting new toy threads before I have said new toy in my hands but I just can't contain the excitement. I ordered one of these gems yesterday, should have it by the end of the week (knock on wood).

I definitely get all the STI hoopla now.

On your Edge did you put the SVI trigger on an STI bow or get all the SVI stuff to fit? I only ask because it was one of the first things I started looking into. Ultimately I decided to hold off for now.

Every trigger needs fitting. Typically just filing the top and bottom of the shoe until it slips in silky. I did the SVI trigger quite a few years back and I've heard varying tales that SVI has started making them a bit bigger to fit their aluminum grips, but I can't substantiate that.

The Eagle now wears a flat gunsmith blank that I sanded down to the same length as the STI as I was able to get it cheaper and wanted to try it (and I love the flat triggers)

Note: These typically drop in without fitting and get you in the upper 2lb range.

Thanks a bunch. That is a tempting kit. I need to get her out to the range ASAP so I can start figuring out how badly I want to start tweaking.

I've shot both Lycanthrope's STI's. If I wouldn't get my ass handed to me by my wife and mother, I'd sell a kidney to get one myself.

Dad wouldn't care, he'd do the same thing.

What recoil and main spring weights are you running in your Eagle?

Recoil:12lb non variable Wolffs in both. Either Dawson Alumabuffs or CP (clear) buffs. NEVER Wilson buffs. Wilson buffs blow and come apart when a nearby rabbit farts.

At 12lbs you don't have to use a buff, but I find the gun tracks better for me with the reduced stroke. Below 12lbs you need s buff with Major PF/factory ammo.

Main: 19lbs Lights CCI rifle primers (what I prefer to use) and gives a good trigger pull

Both have squared firing pin stops (that matters for slide speed).
