Thanks, I have recently acquired a Gamo Compact, and it was useful to read this. I tried a longer screw, but doesn't this adjustment just take up the first-stage "slack" in the trigger movement? And if you continue to screw in, the sears is pushed back, eventually to the point where you can't cock the gun at all.

What I've now done is to lengthen/weaken the short spring in order to reduce the trigger pressure, and I've also added a little grease to the sears. I haven't yet filed and polished the moving parts, but this does sound worthwhile.

Thoughts?
