Trigger Stuff - Imagine

This side-to-side motion of the trigger on my Imagine is really beginning to annoy me. The trigger can move probably 2 or 3 mm to either side from the center which doesnt sound like a lot but it makes it feel very plasticy and cheap, plus makes it harder to walk. As for fixing this I know it probably has to do with opening up the gun and tightening a screw or two, but I'd like to hear how to do it before I jump into it.

The second thing isn't really a problem and I don't know if it's possible without spending money, but is there any way I can pull the trigger back so I don't have to pull it as far each time? Right now there is about 1 mm of space between the back of the trigger and the little button thing on the handle that controls firing. Any way to bring it closer?

--EDIT--
5 to 6 mm was an exaggeration; the side-to-side motion isn't really THAT bad

U will have to knock out the trigger pin to fix the side to side play. Then, add washers to each side till u have most of the play gone. Then just put it all back together.

The trigger should be adjustable w/ a screw. U need to take off the frame to adjust this, screw the screw out (left) just a little, and it should bring it closer.

i got rid of my side play by taking out the trigger and adding a couple layers of tape to the side of it, near the top, around the hole that the pin goes through. add enough to get rid of side play, but not enough to induce friction. to bring the trigger closer to the switch, there should be a hole above the trigger you can stick an allenn key in and adjust it to be closer to the switch. there should be another set screw on the part of the trigger you actually pull, and thats the stopping point. the goal is to get a good starting and stopping point that lest you shoot the fastest.

take off the trigger frame, take outt he pin that holds the trigger ina nd put a washer on as youre' putting the pin back in..this way it's a permant fix and you dont' have to worry about tape or paper falling off.

Plastic washers work better than metal. Metal will need constant lube, plastic however won't.
