Re: Single Stage and Two Stage Triggers?
I'll chime in, here, and agree with Chas1. If you can't hit with your hunting rifles' trigger set at 1 1/2lb. it's, most likly, not the trigger. To another point not mentioned so far; besides pull weight, there is sear engagement and over travel to be adjusted. I am a firm believer in having a gage of some sort when adjusting a trigger. I went ahead and bought a set of NRA certified weights and a Lyman electronic gage. I checked the Lyman against the weights (from as low as the weights will go to their max 4lbs., the instructions that came w/ the weights say the rod weighs 1/2lb.) and they agree so I feel I have a standard to go by. Too many triggers get adjusted by 'guess work'. I have a couple (w/Jewells) set at 1 1/2lb. and have had some say "What's that set on, 6oz.? To the point of the OP, I guess it all depends on what you get used to, a single stage or two stage trigger. just my 2 cents
