Re: Savage Accu Trigger Problem !

I would like to Thank everyone who responded to my thread. I will let you know the verdict when I get to work on it but I'm going to check the sear first as I've been told that Savage packs alot of grease and that when it get's dirty they act like mine so I'm checking this first and then go down the line with all of the suggestions that have been given to me.

Re: Savage Accu Trigger Problem !

I just purchased a Savage model 11/111. Took her out to the range for the first time and hated the damn thing.
My first big rifle and I wanted very much to love it however when pulling and pulling that stock trigger became
cumbersome, quickly. The range master seeing my struggle and knowing it was my first time shooting that gun
told me two very very important things. The first was to tighten every bolt on the gun especially on the sights.
I mean pull off the sight and tighten the screws of the rail then systematically go through every bolt on the
sight and tighten (huge help). The second thing he mentioned is if your are having problems with your trigger
pull try purchasing a Timney trigger. Now mind you he said he had never purchased one but sold his favorite
rifle to his best friend because he couldn't stand the pull of the trigger. His friend replaced the trigger and
called him back thanking him for the wonderful rifle. Sharing this with me must have been difficult for him as
he lost his favorite rifle. Nothing like learning from someone else’s mistakes. I went home purchased a Timney
it came and I installed the new trigger with a cast on in 20 minutes. The difference was unbelievable.
Now I know there are other triggers out there and I can't speak about them. However this was easy to install
and the pull is now perfect. To like your rifle means you like your trip if its to the range or on the hunt.
Although it was a tad more expensive than the others the ease and feel of the pull makes the purchase a
no brainer. If you have a Savage without the accutrigger do what I did buy it, install it, and enjoy it.

Good shooting

first of all the savage trigger is better than the Timeney trigger (I know I have been thru both). If you must change the trigger group out, then get the one from Sharpshooter. Even the Rifle Basix is better than the Timeney. The Savage trigger can be adjusted within 2lb., and still be safe. The one Accutrigger I own came from the factory set at 2.5lb. with little if any creep, and zero over travel. I've never bothered to do anything with it as it's just about all I could want. Yet down the road the action will get the benchrest trigger along with a retiming of the action (comes with the installation). If this one pans out, I'll be sending him a couple more rifles.

I suspect the problem is not so much in the trigger itself as much as it's out of adjustment. Take the rifle to somebody that knows Savage triggers and have him set it up for you. It'll be money well spent
