Backing out the screw is kind of a hard way to do things.  What you have
to do is take the spring out of a tire valve and use it instead of the
stock spring.  Makes it real easy to get a reliable and clean 2 pound
trigger pull.  Cutting the spring's length is kind of counterproductive
in a way because shortening a spring raises the spring constant making
it an even more delicate adjustment than it all ready is.
