Sweet Pea Trigger

Does anyone know what the size of the 2 set screws are in the Sweet Pea Trigger? I need to run a tap through the lower hole.

I don't know the answer to your question. But, if you take the set screw to any good hardware store, they usually have a gauge hanging that you can check the screw and thread size for both screws and nuts.

Good luck finding your answer.

Well, I solved my problem. They want you to put a dab of blue thread locker on the hole and some on the set screw. I did and I guess I got too much. it got into the middle of the hole and hardened up. I soaked the trigger in acetone and was able to work my was through the blockage. I'll let it soak over night and it should be fine in the morning.
The installation is a bit more challenging than they make it look. I had it apart and together several times and now I could do it blindfolded.
I just hope the resulting improvement is as good as they claim.

It made a vast improvement on my first generation LCP. Anyone that complains about the LCP trigger, I let them try mine, and they all comment on the notable difference. Plus it looks cooler

My only question at this point is, if you have installed this Sweet Pea Trigger, did you use the top, short, pre travel screw? I cannot move it out far enough to where I do not get the second reset click. I have the post screw (lower one, longer) adjusted fine and the pistol shoots fine. As is, after the second click, the trigger moves a VERY small amount before it stops. I am thinking I can just use it as is. Maybe the pre screw they sent is just too short, but I can't see where I need it anyway.

Sounds like you have it set correctly to me. You NEED that second reset click. If you only get the first click... the trigger never actually resets. The Sweet Pea trigger allows the user to adjust away as much over travel (rearward and forward) as possible.
When adjusted correctly, the trigger will stop as soon as the hammer is released. I adjusted mine by turning the set screw out so far that the hammer would not release. Then incrementally screwed it in a quarter turn at a time until the hammer fell reliably on ever pull and there was no perceptible trigger travel after the point where the hammer released. On reset you'll hear and feel the "click..click" and then the trigger should stop immediately with no excessive travel past the second reset click.

Galloway sent me a longer screw for the pre-travel. It is now adjusted perfectly. The "Noisy Cricket" now is a lot more pleasant to shoot. Still not a "Range Queen", but I don't wince when I pull the trigger.

Been putting some rounds through Elsie Pea. Getting to enjoy shooting her more and more since the mods. Not a long range shooter, but I could put 6 rounds in center mass at 20 ft.
