I am a trigger snob.
I demand a light crisp break.
min. preload, ZERO post travel.
ideally, 3-3.5#s of pull

The Stock AA trigger meets none of this.

What is a trigger group will provide me what I want.

Pulls are not listed anywhere that I can see.

seeing the design of the entire system, there will always bit a bit more resistance than real steel, so I can deal with some flaws.

To me, CMC triggers (real steel) is by far the best lazy mans trigger.
I well polished trigger and spring replacement is best.

As for the Airsoft designs, I am still investigating that. Seeing how the sear lets loose the piston is not an easy task to smooth it out with reliability(slam fire).

Well, this will be my next tweak to this VSR.
Probably my last too.... LOL.

Played with it today. My brain went right into real steel mode. I had to stop mid pull to verify the safety was not on.
Then I remembered it had a 13lb pull weight.... LOL.
I can live with some slop, but this thing has to be around 3 lbs max. I can adjust for the rest.

After looking over the stock VSR trigger and not really seeing a net gain of what I expect from a trigger, I am trying another route.

Due to the stock being like it be.
7# to 7.5# is ridiculous

Time to swap some parts 😁

The meter reads the amount of force, it ft. lbs, that it takes to pull a trigger to the break.
So, I needed to put 7.5 pounds or force to engage the trigger. That was an average of 5 pulls, and the last 2 are showing. So 7lbs and 5.2 oz.
In other words A LOT.
A real Stock Glock is about 5.5 lbs, which sucks. But There is a reason.

The last reading on the meter is basically 1/2 oz of pressure/ force. Thats light REALLY light. In real steal, it would be dangerous.
Its good for teaching trigger discipline though. LOL

The MK23 is at about 5.5 lbs. Which is probably pretty close to realistic numbers, shit, but realistic. Funny thing is, its about 5.5 on both single action and double action. That is VERY odd.
Usually, single action is only about 70% of double action.
My favorite pistols, all have a break of about 1.75 - 2.25 on single action, and around 4 lbs for double action. Thats probably too light for "duty" use, but perfect for games.

If I could get this (TTI Trigger) to no more than 2.5 lbs it would be a freaking perfect trigger. Break is damned good. I got my 2mm of pre-travel, and ZERO over travel.
I will use it happily, just have to retrain my finger a bit.
I just dont want to get a branch or a twig jammed in there and shoot my foot, or my squadmate.
I guess I need to pull it back out and install the safety, but that OEM lever sucks. Gets in the way.
It also lets the cylinder piston loose with a bit more uuumph too. Hope it does not give me more than 10-15 fps, or I will be trimming some springs. I am about 530 FPS right now (with .20).

Its a nice dammed bit of kit and would recommend it

ETA: an easy trigger keeps the trigger jerk from throwing the point of impact off target.
That I learn from some of the best shooters in the world.
