After a conversation with Mike (armorer), he personally recovered my order, replaced the trigger and trigger spring kit, polished engagement surfaces, and test fired the weapon. Found the trigger defective, replaced with another and test fired again to his satisfaction. I received my Helcat 2 days later and it is a totally different weapon.. I am extremely happy with his service and highly recommend this fine organization.
They shipped my order out promptly and received it a day earlier than expected. I use the instructional videos for the installation. I took it to the range the next day to give it a test. Everything went flawlessly. Thank you for a great product and service.
My new Hellcat trigger didn't feel too bad out of the box, but it wasn't super smooth. A few hundred rounds and thousand or so dry-fires and it was smoother, but still 7.75# avg.
In comes M-Carbo! The trigger kit install was easy and straight forward. I really like the stainless striker sleeve as well. A few minutes of polishing and getting things back together and we now have a 5.5 - 6# trigger that feels great!
Good quality parts.
All items received fit perfectly and the installation was very easy. Your online video giving step by step instruction for the installation was detailed and helpful. Thank you!!!
I purchased the spring kit with stainless steel striker sleeve for my hellcat. It was easy to install and made a incredible difference in trigger pull weight! I'm extremely happy with this product
works well easy install trigger pull avg was 4.25 pounds and the reset felt good
I was hesitant on going into the Hellcat and changing springs/tension/components. However, this is my favorite upgrade I've done to my hellcat! Combined with the upgraded Aluminum trigger also from MCarbo, it changed the gun! Light, crisp, clean break and firm follow up only helps with accuracy and follow up shots. Video instruction on installation makes it to where even a novice gunsmith can do the work with ease. Great job!
The installation video is excellent, easy to follow and well explained. The result was a huge improvement. Much smoother trigger pull, makes the pistol more fun to shoot. Additionally, with a short sight radius, the easier trigger pull helps me keep the gun more stable and therefore makes my shooting more accurate.
I bought this kit for the improved trigger pull. I was looking for upgrades for my hellcat on youtube and I watched the M Carbo install video before I even bought the kit. After watching the video I knew I wanted the kit just for the stainless steel striker sleeve.
1. Watch the video before and during the install. This is the most important thing I can stress. It will help you more than you know.
2. If you have a manual safety then make sure you watch another video on how to deal with that part of the disassembly. The M Carbo video doesn't cover Hellcats with manual safety so do your research.
3. Buy a good punch or punches. I only used a 1/16th punch for the entire process but my gun was new so others may need a bit larger punch.
4. When installing the sear spring, I tried to follow the video but it was difficult. Instead I left the trigger bar out and just used the sear and gravity to align the pin with the new sear spring, then pushed the sear into position and installed the trigger bar. Seemed easier for me but others may like the process in the video.
After installation the overall trigger performance was noticeably improved. I would recommend this kit to anyone looking for their first Hellcat mod. I will likely get the aluminum trigger kit as well because if the quality is as good as the striker sleeve then I am sure it's going to be worth the money for the new trigger.
This combo is a must if you own a hellcat. This makes day and night difference for the hellcat's trigger pull. Do your hellcat a favor, buy this kit for upgrade!
This trigger upgrade is a must have for your Hellcat. Major reduction in the trigger pull that is way too heavy from new especially for women (my wife loves it as it was for her pistol). Also eliminates the fragile plastic striker sleeve. Total install time was less than an hour.
Super easy to install and works amazingly. Shipping was fast. My new go to place for parts. Now I wish they sold a trigger to.
Very good video explaining how to install Hellcat trigger kit, took me about an hour going slowly and the end result is nice. Don't have a trigger poundage gauge but just guessing it took about 3 lbs. off the trigger pull.
Everything I have ever bought from M*Carbo has been exceptional in quality and function. Most of the spring kits are a piece of cake to install and the video that is available really makes it easy. However, there are two exceptions to this that I know of. I purchased the spring kit for the Springfield Hellcat RDP. That pistol has a manual safety on it. The video was of a Hellcat that did not have that. There are some extra parts in the RDP and two, in particular, are extremely easy to lose. It is the spring and detent for the safety. They are held in place by being positioned against other parts and when disassembled, they tend to fly out. There was no mention of this difference in the video and I see no reason to re-do the video, however, it would have been nice to have had maybe a 2 minute video showing how to deal with that portion of the process. I had the exact same problem installing the spring kit into a Ruger LCP2 in .22 caliber. One or two different parts that just fell out and it took forever to figure out how to get it together. I know that you cannot cover all the various configurations in one video, however, a heads-up about these variances would have been great. Again, you guys do a great job with everything I've gotten from you. Love your kits and parts and am a dedicated customer.
This kit provides absolutely the perfect trigger pull pressure. I’d never broken down any pistol that far and had initially thought of taking it to a gunsmith. But decided to watch their video for my Hellcat. The video was so step by step, I just did it myself, albeit slower that molasses in the winter (2 hours). If you own a Hellcat, stop cussing the pistol and buy this mod and start enjoying shooting it a it should have been delivered from factory!
