New Remington trigger question

Hey guys,

Lots of experience with the old Rem. trigger--none with the new one. Just got a 22-250 with the new trigger; haven't even looked at it yet. Is the new trigger adjusted the same as the older one?

Thanks,

Jim

No!

The new trigger has the adjustments in different places, and the screws are now hex head, not slotted.

Also, the glue "Seals of God-da" now pour down into the screw hole so it will be more difficult to remove.

I plan to soak mine in paint remover over night to get rid of the seals, before adjusting.

Other than that, it is just a trigger, and can be adjusted.

One caution, though. The over travel screw is now a part of the safety systewm, and moves to lock the trigger in place when the gun is on safe.

This way, the safety blocks the sear AND the trigger.

It's a good design (much better than the old one), it'll just take a while to get used to.

Re: New Remington trigger question

Can you change out the new trigger out with an Old trigger ?

Re: New Remington trigger question

This morning, I looked at the new trigger--straightforward, except for the over travel adjustment. I couldn't get it to move--may still be glued in place. I have it soaking in de-bonder now.

The comment about the over travel--does that mean it's not adjustable??

Thanks,

Jim
Don't know about the change out--I'll check it out while I have the rifle apart.

Yup... exact fit - you might have to clear away a small bit of the stock on the bolt handle side, cuz there a little "Fat" place on the new trigger.

Yes, it's ajustable, it's just that it now does two functions so make sure that when you adjust overtravel, you don't lock it up from working in conjunction with the safety.

Re: New Remington trigger question

The de-bonder solved the stuck screw problem. Then no problem to adjust the over travel screw.

How light have you guys been able to go? I am at 2 1/4 pounds.

Thanks,

Jim

Re: New Remington trigger question

I seem to recall reading an article (written by some mangy old yotebait baiting critter) describing how to adjust the old Rem trigger. Wonder what the odds might be of a similar writeup about the new trigger?
