Re: REM 700 Factory Trigger

Well everyone I adjusted all my triggers down to 2 1/4lbs except for the one that had the set screw snap in half when I was trying to break it free. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] I was only using two fingers on my small screw drive and it made one turn then cracked in half. I guess I am going to have fun trying to drill that little $%#@^% out. Well if it comes down to it that rifle will get a Rifle basic trigger. All I can say is if you see some loctite on the threads after you scrape the outer layer off the screws. Do yourself a favor and heat the trigger assemble with a tourch for a few seconds then break the screws free. I wish I would have done that right away. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] I slammed the bolt up and down on each rifle 50 to 60 times and the pin never went off on any of them. I also worked the saftey's 30+ times and tried to pull the trigger with it on and the pin did not fire so I think I am safe. Thanks everyone for the help!!!! The job was pretty simple with the directions you guys gave me. Thanks again!!!
P.S. Anyone want to drill out a set screw for me? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] J/K

Re: REM 700 Factory Trigger

For those of you who don't want to work on your own Remington triggers:

Neil Jones will rework your trigger and bring the weight down to any desired weight for $50, and that includes shipping. The minimum weight he will do is 1lb. I hade 2 triggers done by Neil. Biggame rifle trigger is set @ 2.5lb and breaks clean. Varmint rifle was reworked to 1lb and also breaks clean. I also tried to cause the pin to drop by slapping the bolt closed or by pulling the trigger with safety engaged, then released. Trigger would not drop the pin during my tests. Even the 1lb trigger appears to be quite safe.
