I think the main reason there are not many or none it the fact that people would buy them
for there favorite shotgun, and a light trigger is poison on a shotgun under hunting conditions.

The only that I Know to lighten the trigger is to change the spring and I would recomend
having a good smith do this for safety. Minimum weight should be 31/2 to 4 pounds.

Re: Triggers

Might be because shotguns are intended to engage air-borne targets where a light trigger pull isn't desirable.

Re: Triggers

@ Shortgrass. Yes for a shot gun I can understand, but I am shooting slugs at deer. Me personally, I never shoot slugs at airborn targets. My problem is I feel have to really grip the snot out of the gun so that I dont pull my shot. not that big of a diffrence at 100yrds. when you start getting out 150+. I can see the crosshairs move off by a big margin if your not carful. You figure rifle have about 3-4lb trigger pull. Now the slugs these days have range capabilitys only thought possible by a rifle or muzzle loader.

Did they happen to mention in the email how many lb pull on their new trigger for the 870?

Re: Triggers

They didn't say anything about how pull weight was on, but having a timney in my rifle and comparing it with my other factory rifle triggers its a wonder of nature. Even if it had the same pull, I would be it would be ten times smoother.
