So good news is I found out weseal like liver !
Bad news is my trigger has a bit too much travel for a critter that light.

The trap bar was about half way set off when I checked from center so reckon I can just grind it a little thinner confused

I can make it much lighter with the use of lighter springs but the problem is if I make it too light it's gonna be pretty hard to actually keep set in field conditions

Had to do a little modification to me it easier to set but so far it works pretty good on rats and small possums around the yard
