Otherwise you might have the gun go boom when it ain't supposed to.
I understand your point on this, but I think it's a little dumb of Remington to advertise it as a fully adjustable trigger (I realize anytime you fiddle with something mechanical, there is a certain risk that is taken tho lol), it leads the customer to believe it is meant to be able to be adjusted by them. Especially if you don't read the fine print.

I knew I was voiding the factory warranty when I did this, but I was not happy with the original trigger. I wish Remington had kept their old trigger, it was tunable to how you wanted if you knew what you were doing. The X-Mark you're limited to 1 real adjustment, unless you dissassemble the unit.

I see your point, hopefully with discussions such as this post enough word will get out so folks will generally be aware of what it really means.

Usually when I see something a little too good to be true...I immediatly go to the fine print so to speak (investigate) to validate if it's really all it's crocked up to be or is there a hook. Sounds like your thinking's the same as mine since you knew ahead of time it would void the warranty...smart on your part, can't be too careful these days where just about any marketing tactic seems to be fair play. Take Care.

Yeah, I know. I wonder if Remington treats their newer "externally adjustable" trigger the same way? That's just asking for trouble if they do lol.

Re: How to adjust the new Remington 700 X-Mark Pro trigger

I know this is kind of a dead thread...

but I just adjusted the trigger on my new sps(well a couple months old now) and it is much better. still isnt a timney but its better. I've get it around 3lbs and its fine. I beat the crap out of it trying to get it to fire and never could get it to. I was scared I was actually gunna move my scope so I stopped @ that point.

Jewell HVRT comes on the ďAĒ spring set at one pound. Between the A, B, and C springs it can be set from 1 Ĺ ounces to four pounds. It comes with a safety and bolt release. You may have to make a tiny bit more clearance for the safety but if my first wife had treated me like Jewell, she would have gotten anything she ever wanted too. Jewell ainít cheap but the sex is much better with no need for pills or therapy.
