Anyone have a tip on how to eliminate take up with some sort of do-it-yourself method?

I don't have enough take up to warrant $35 trigger with those little tabs.

Just looking to cut maybe a 1/4 inch at most of slack.

One of my factory triggers had the rear of the stirrup reshaped to contact the disco sooner. I have also read of others adding material to the same area.

As mentioned in the last post of the linked thread, I have had good luck putting a dab of solder on the front of the trigger bow and dressing it down to the desired level of pre-travel. Nice thing, it is totally reversible.

I do know how to use the search, did so, and it is NOT my friend. But I do thank you magnum for posting the relevant link :)

After over a half hour of going thru all the irrelevant search results, I figured it would be a hell of a lot quicker to ask.

Thanks, kp. Solder is a fantastic idea considering I will more than likely screw it up a few times getting it right.

I appreciate it.

You do not want to "eliminate" takeup - a small amount is required or the sear cannot reset. If it is really excessive you can reduce it some.
