If 3 lbs on the HACT doesn't work out for you, sell it and get a https://timneytriggers.com/index.php...per&Itemid=62; you get down to 1.5 lbs.

Re: Howa Trigger adjustment How to.

If it is possible to modify a trigger, why spend a lot of money on a new one?
A new trigger would be the last option.
Thanks for the assistence.

I'm sure it can be modified, i.e. by a competent gunsmith, but an hourly cost of $50-$75 labor cost and a minimum charge, it might be a wash at the end.

In addition, someone might be happy with that trigger "as-is". You can then use part of the recouped cost from the sale towards a new one. Your choice to call, just trying to provide alternatives for your consideration!

I personally keep all my hunting rifle trigger pull at 2.5-3.0 lbs.

I got it right! I took out the actuator and polished the different planes. At the moment my trigger pull is at 1 lb. Perfect!

I can't waite to test it - that will only be on Saturday!
