"Soup can" trigger mod for Phantom.... Totally Unsafe.
« on: December 03, 2013, 01:18:52 PM »
I have been combing the net for any info on making the trigger work better on my .22 phantom. First I took out the "1st stage " spring. That made it lighter but I like the 2 stage feel better. Then I stumbled on the "soup can" mod. I gave it a try and I must say, a lighter actual 2 stage trigger makes it a lot easier to hit the bulls eye. I fired off a dime group at 20 yards and then took out a squirrel who has been giving me grief. Very nice mod.

This picture should help. It fits an adjusting screw inside the stock trigger. The first stage then partly moves the sear and the second stage drops it. A bit of adjusting and you can make it suit your preference.

That's exactly what it is... a soup can mod. This mod is something that was first brought up about 10 years ago by someone on the YP's and was pretty ridiculous as well as not very safe. It was never practical and was a cobbled up mess. I'm surprised that it is still around. I strongly suggest that those reading this article to disregard it. There are far better and safer mods available out there.
