Re: Trigger overtravel - needed or not?

I think it's just a matter of likes and dislikes.

I like a trigger with almost no over travel because with it I seem to anticipate the trigger
breaking if there is very much travel.

As cornstalker said the lighter triggers are not as effected buy over travel.

And if the over travel is properly adjusted It has no effect on safety.

Also if you squeeze the trigger and don't jerk it it should not move the rifle.

    Thanks Kiwi!
