I wonder why they won't ship outside the USA.
FA and AG parts are often indistinguishable making passing FA export restrictions very difficult, therefore not worth it.

The reason for not selling outside the US given by Bob Werner, as I recall, was he tired of completing the necessary export paperwork.  It was far easier for him to limit sales to inside the US.

Just the guy I wanted to talk to..... Thomas... what kind of advantage will I get from putting the GRT 4G in the FireCat (my chopped Gamo Silent Cat). I know you are the Gamo Springer Guru. My only experience with the CDT was the GRT III I put in the Crosman Vantage NP and it was a completely blissful world. The FireCat is so dead on accurate the way it is and the only time I miss what I aim at out to 40 yds is when I jerk that Gaud Aweful trigger.
Thanks

Hi All,

Sorry to ask what is possibly a really stupid question but are the CRT-4G triggers still available from the charliedatuna site?  I was/am hesitant to blindly send $36 cash to someone in SC so I decided to email them first to at least make sure there was a live person on the other end.  This was a couple of days ago but I never received a response.

So...  from everything I can tell it seems legit but I would feel better sending cash if I could get a response.

Very kind regards,
tim

It's totally legit. Someone else will probably post details, but they've been selling the triggers like that for a while now. No worries whatsoever ordering.

Cathy is having major computer issues right now. Hers has crashed, the one she uses to fill orders and respond to email. I will be trying to revive it to recover her CDT business info this week, the computer is on it's way to me. Hang tight and pray I can recover it. But a big yes, she and the CDT business is very legit!!!!

Tim (and anyone else needing to order now) I have Cathy's personal email I'll send you. She will respond to it. Just tell her you were given her email by me while we are getting her computer back up and going.

Stoeger X20 GRT iii trigger problem
« Reply #31 on: November 04, 2016, 07:29:14 AM »
Hi all,

I'm Foz, I live in the UK.

I recently bought a Stoeger X20, and I bought a GRT iii trigger to replace the original one as it's a bit rubbish.

I'm having problems with the GRT iii, though. I have had a search but I can't find anything that has helped me.

I followed all of the instructions when fitting the trigger. But after fitting the trigger the gun wouldn't cock. I'm not 100% sure on terminology here, but I believe I'm right in saying the sear wouldn't engage. I checked the troubleshooting guide and it talks about making sure the trigger blade is seated properly on the trigger - i checked and it is. As per the guide, I've filed down where my safety and beartrap are to allow clearance.

The only way I can get the gun to cock, is if I turn the 1st stage screw all of the way out (so it is barely touching the trigger blade), and the 2nd stage screw most of the way in (which means i have no second stage) - even then it fires with a tiny tiny bit of movement on the trigger, and even fires with the safety on.

If I put the original trigger back on, it cocks as expected and shoots as expected - although now I can shoot through the safety since it has been filed down to accomodate the other trigger.

With the original trigger on, when I pull the trigger I get no play in the trigger blade, until it reaches the point where it puts pressure on it. With the GRT I get a tiny amount of play in the trigger blade before it puts any pressure on it/reaches the second stage (When it is set up to have a second stage, but doesn't cock).

The GRT trigger feels great when it's on, but the gun isn't safe with it installed.

I've had the trigger on and off so many times now trying to work this out - several hours of my time pondering to what is causing it but I can't work it out.

Does anyone have any advise for me please?

Thanks,
Foz

Cathy's rebuilt computer is scheduled to deliver to her today. I have forwarded all new email from the CDT site to her up until I shipped her computer Monday. If you have placed an order or sent a message, you can expect to hear something later this evening or tomorrow at the latest. That is, if it still works and was delivered in descent shape. :)

Hey Foz, sorry for the issues and the lack of answers you have gotten. I am really up to my ears in work and not had time to investigate by opening my X20 to take a look. Gene installed mine while doing a NP conversion to it but I don't believe he had to do any filing of anything. And to me, it sounds like the filing has caused the safety to now not function at all. NOT good.
If you can, please take some close up photos of the trigger assembly. As detailed as you can. It's really hard to troubleshoot without having it in front of me but we will try. Shipping back and forth would be very costly too. :)
But we will try to help.

Hi - Yes of course, no problem :)

I can accept the safety not working if I have filed it down too far, as I know I can fix that by either replacing the part or extending it slightly with a weld and some filing. My main issue is with the trigger being so sensitive, that if put my finger on the trigger (no pressure) it fires - and to get it to this point, where the gun will cock and not fire itself when I close the barrel, I have to back out both of the adjustment screws so that they do nothing - which defeats the purpose of having this trigger.

I will get some pictures as requested :)

Thanks again for any assistance.

I just found this thread and have been trying to reach Cathy but have had no reply.
I even tried another email account I have today.
Is she a member of this board? I have an aversion to sending someone money when I cannot contact them.
Edit:
Is a $100 dollar rifle worth a $30 trigger?
