Ruger MarkII trigger

I have a Ruger M77 MarkII 7mmRM. It is the older one that I bought new about 15yrs ago. 3 position safety. I want to put a lighter trigger pull on it. Any suggestions?

Re: Ruger MarkII trigger

I replaced my Ruger M77 MKII in .338 WM with Spec-tech standard triggers. It's very easy to install and adjust ... and for the price it's hard to beat. Currently set @ 2.5 lbs and very happy thus far!

The paddle is next .

The Ruger trigger is not difficult if you decide to work on it instaed of replacing.
Ruger Model 77 Trigger Adjustments

I have done several using these instructions and am happy with the results.

Thanks for the info. I would like to give this a try but have no clue how to work on it. I am better with detailed directions and pictures. I have been hunting for years but never done any kind of gunsmithing. After joining this site, makes me want to get more into it though.

Re: Ruger MarkII trigger

If you are not comfortable with it the task is best left up to a gunsmith.
Since it is not difficult a good gunsmith should not charge much
