    Stronger trigger return spring for Beretta 92X

    A short while back I bought a 92X in order to practice with a DA/SA. As such I had no trouble and I can see how this type of gun is popular in certain circles. However, shooting that 92X is still a royal pain in the posterior because of extremely light trigger return. In every other gun that I have, I only need to relax the trigger finger a little and the springs return the mechanism for a reset. But in this 92X, it takes a lot of effort to completely relax the finger, so that the pitifully weak return spring began to move it.

    At this point, I'm thinking about putting a heavier trigger return spring in. But I need to identify a suitable one. Websites show trigger springs for various 92 models that appear to be completely different in design. For example:

    Type A:

    Type B:

    Also, there's no telling if they reduce the power even further.

    I can't say I've ever found this to be a problem with 92 series guns for me, but I also use Langdon trigger bars which reduce the reset to an extremely short distance, less than a tenth of an inch.

    A 92 doesn't push your finger forward like the striker spring of a Glock, which has been a crutch for many shooters. You save time by immediately going forward with your trigger finger to the point at which you know the trigger will reset, and not waiting for the trigger itself or concerning yourself with maintaining contact with the trigger at all times, that's bunk.

    If you know that, and the trigger return is still slower than you can move your finger, I'd be looking for any extra friction or parts interference causing an issue. I've always just slapped an LTT/Wilson chrome silicon return spring and LTT trigger bar in and never worried about it, and before that, had no issue with the stock parts.

    I agree with the above... if the trigger does not instantly follow your finger forward either the spring is defective or some other defect is adding friction.

    If what you are saying is you "reset" by relaxing your finger and letting the TRS push your finger forward, you are shooting very inneficiently, and you should change to actively pushing your finger forward after the shot breaks as that is a necessary element of shooting faster.

    When my agency issued Beretta 96D Brigadiers in the late 90s we had issues with Beretta trigger return springs breaking.

    Wolff developed an alternative TRS design which is significantly more durable which is what you have linked and type A.

    I think this will be most likely to provide what you are looking for.

    Theoretically if this is too light it would be much easier to source a heavier coil spring and modify this style.

    I've been using a standard power Wolff TCU for years. If you want a stronger reset, you may want to try the XP TCU. The standard power is slightly delayed compared to the OEM-style trigger return spring.

    There are many who have tried the Wolff spring and found it gave a rough trigger pull. I wouldn't bother w/ it. The Wilson plain spring is what I use, or one from LTT which may be the same piece. I have never experienced a slow trigger return so there may be a problem w/ your gun. I would first check to see if the trigger bar is wearing on the underside of the right grip panel. While the panel is off be sure that each point of contact of trigger, trigger bar, trigger bar spring, trigger bar to frame is clear and has lube. Also note that anything you do as far as a stronger spring is going to increase the trigger pull weight.
