Re: Remington has a new trigger for 2006
First from reading the article it sounds like it was the lawyers who inspired the new trigger. Remington is calling it the "SPL for "Safety Pivoted Link" the new trigger unit looks remarkably similar to the original, but differs in one major element: the safety blocks movement of both the trigger and sear."
Seems there is an issue with the existing Reminton triggers in that if the safety is on and you pull the trigger, the trigger has to fully return to position or the gun will fire when the safety is released. The trigger may potentially hang/bind on the inside of the stock or something and not fully return to position leaving you in danger when you release the safety.
"Remington makes several claims for the new trigger, among them:
1) improved out-of-the-box feel,
2) better corrosion resistance,
3) more highly-polished parts to provide a crisper pull, and
4) lower pull settings from the factory.
Though trigger tampering still voids the warranty, the trigger pull can be adjusted down to 2 lbs. if done by an authorized Remington Repair Center."
