Re: Do Better Triggers really make a Difference
Gotcha there PRDVET, don't want to push the healing proccess. Several years back I had some of the vertebrates in my neck fused together and was out shooting a month later with a brace on my neck...I never claim to be the smartest guy in the world. But the reason your buddy shoots better then you may be because he shoots more then you. If it's the recoil you are worried about then do a lot of dry firing. Generally speaking, I think that most of the triggers on our issued weapons are horrible for precision work. I have picked up a few M16A4's that were designated marksmen rifles and had the soldiers tag it for maintenance because it had a 12+ pound trigger pull, and these guys were effective with them. Most of the issued M4/M16 rifles that I have checked had pulls in the 7lbd range. I think this is for a reason, these things are put through hell and it only needs to go off when excited Joe wants it to.
If you think a replacement trigger will help then go for it. I don't think it'll make things worse.
Good luck, with the rifle and recovery.
