Re: PSE TAC 15 and 15i - Installing a Timney Trigger System

Hi Len,
Thanks for the great article on the "Accuwedge".

As you know, there are a few major differences between the TAC 15 and the TAC 15i.

Another one for the record is the fact that the TAC 15i is a proprietary AR-15 lower, which means that it uses the (6) hex screws, (3 on each side of the frame), to hold the upper and lower units together. This provides a much tighter connection and would eliminate the movement and play between the two sections that the "Accuwedge" is designed to fix.

I can't produce a good article on how best to silence down the TAC15, due to the fact that I only own the 15i and therefore have solid working knowledge of all components on the 15i.

I'd image there are also many similarities that can be taken from one and applied to the other, but just like I expressed in the Timney trigger installation, there are definite differences in the two.

We need the expertise and input from some of the AR-15 TAC15 owners to fill in the missing gaps in this section.

I hope we've provided a good start.

Regards,

Jon

Got it. That was a hard pin to remove.

I did this upgrade. Works great.
As they say... read all the directions first before you start.

There is a safety spring that could fly off into outer space if you're not careful.

I was not careful, but managed not to lose it.

I got the 3.5lb trigger and would recommend going to the 3.0lb.

The trigger is a huge upgrade over stock.

Re: PSE TAC 15 and 15i - Installing a Timney Trigger System

Just picked up my Elite two days ago. I had a slight problem right out of the box. The ratchet for the crank gear was not engaging. Just a little tight machine tolerance was the problem. A drop of oil and working the lever back and forth for a while finally freed it up. I am simply amazed at the precision of this bow. Both in quality and performance. I was wondering, does the trigger upgrade really make that much difference? The factory trigger seems fine to me but I'm always up for improvement. Also I have sighted in my top crosshair for 20 yds.(with the factory scope). Which then I noticed that the second crosshair is already zeroed at 30 yds. and the 3rd crosshair is zeroed at 40 yds. I havent had the chance or a place to shoot farther than that yet. Does this continue down the scope? I mean once you zero the top crosshair for 20 yds. is the scope already designed to be zeroed in 10 yd. increments moving down the crosshairs??

With my scope set on 4X and the crosshair zero'd at 20 yards the next dot down is 30, and the next 40.
I'm shooting a Hawke 2-7x30 with illuminated Mil-Dot reticle.

The stock trigger on the Tac15 was a standard 8lb AR-15 monstrosity. While you can grunt your way through good groups at the range, it is a poor choice for hunting.
The Timney small pin, 3.0lb is the bees knees.
