Re: Savage AccuTrigger

My BVSS came with a trigger adjusted as light as it would go. Still was very heavy. I cut the trigger return spring so it just touched the receiver when cocked. Made a big difference and still functions correctly. I weighed the center trigger "thingy" (sorry if I got too technical!) and it was adding over a pound of trigger weight so I did the same thing to it. Made a world of difference and works great. It is set at about 1.25 pounds.

    How much did you cut off the "thingy" spring?

    +4 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I got 4 rifles with the accu-trigger and like'um. The false trigger doesnt bother me at all as well but I can see why some dont like it.

    52449 WOW! How heavy was your trigger on your BVSS I got a 30-06 and that trigger is just over 1 lb. and breaks real nice. Glad to hear you got it to work for you though. In fact I worked up loads for it today and shot a .171" and .235" 3 shot group looks promising.

    Aloha!!

    I cut it just long enough so it returns the "thingy" to its extended position. It just barely touches. I did it in steps, a little at a time. I might of had it out three times cutting a little off each time.

    It was heavy enough to get you out of breath waiting for it to break! It's good now. I like it but ave considered a sharp shooter or rifle basix.

    Re: Savage AccuTrigger

    I have been polishing the sear and trigger and getting very big improvments on every accu trigger i have worked on. Most equal or are better than a sss trigger. I have one that is around six ounces. GUESS that one was timed perfect from the factory. i love the accu triggers and for $250 a very accurate action with a good trigger whats not to love

    52449,

    Yup know what you mean buddy that dont cut it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I was looking at a sharp shooter trigger as well for another savage I have. May wanna ask Kirby about the rifle basix though I think he might have had some problems dont know exactly what though.

    Goodluck and Great Shooting!!!
