Re: Savage AccuTrigger

The accutrigger is very simalar to the triggers on the Ruger VTs and oddly enough a Sweede(military type trigger)so getting used to a little lite takeup before the trigger breaks was not a problem for me.
However if you side-load the trigger at all you can trip the main before the first safty trigger ingauges...got tired of that happening and just eliminated the first stage.To me the acutrigger is an unnessisary gimic that I can do without....Have ben able to get the Stevens(old Savage) trigger down lite-smooth enough that they work just fine.
Not a bad factory trigger for those that dont shoot a lot but ????

Re: Savage AccuTrigger

does it feel weird pulling this false trigger before you get to the real trigger? Or is it just something you get used to??

Re: Savage AccuTrigger

I dont like the feel of it either personally...

The ruger 2 stage is better IMO...

I hate having to pull 1 trigger to get to the next...

Any fine tuned factory trigger is gonna do just as well..

Re: Savage AccuTrigger

Don't know why everyone is hatin' on the accutrigger, but I think it is as fine a factory trigger as you'll find. Is a Jewell better??? Sure it is. It also costs $185 + installation. I still have the factory accutrigger on my 6-250 that Kirby built and to be honest, I like it better than the Rifle Basix on that is on my 270 AM. It is a nice crisp 9 oz.

Re: Savage AccuTrigger

Thanks for the input everyone. Guess I'll just have to give it a try and see what I think. Now to just figure out which model I want to go with. Maybe that'll be my next post. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Savage AccuTrigger

I think that there are 3 versions of the Accu-Trigger, and depending the rifle, you get a specific trigger.
Hunting models get a 3-6 pound trigger
Law enforcement gets 1 1/2 to something
and Target models get the low weight.

This may have changed, but make sure before you buy or you may not like the weight and Savage does not sell the springs to Non-gunsmiths....at least in the past.

It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
