I just spent about 30 min on the trigger wow what a difference! Its shootable now thanks for the help. I did the hammer test with a rubber mallet and worked the bolt hard not to light but very shootable!

Re: New Longrange pistol (Savage) initial impression and your suggestions please

those triggers are tricky. I still have one of the midgrips and was talking to a fellow shooter at the range a few weeks ago about it. guy used to work as a smith at a shop that closed and said he still had a custom built link. I bought it from him and installed it. wow! what a difference ill pull the action out and take a picture so maybe a smith or someone can make some more.

OK got the trigger tuned in. It took a little more time after I figured out the safety was not engaging. Took her to the range last night results were so bad that I think that's all I should say.

This morning I went back out and shot 3 loads. I have one that was right at an inch. Now I have to load up some more and see if it was just a fluke.
