Re: Trigger Job

While I can't answer that directly, I can tell you that I replaced the trigger spring in my Rem 7400 and it made a world of difference. In fact, I was checking a couple of other rifles this evening after doing some work and checked the 7400 too. It's just a tad above 3 pounds now as a 5-pull average using my Lyman trigger pull gauge.

I just went and checked for you - this is the one I purchased:
Remington 7400 7600 760 740 4 6 REDUCED PULL! : Small Parts at GunBroker.com

At $8.25 + $3 shipping, you can't hardly lose. I also installed his kit in my Rem 11-87 shotgun. No, I'm not the seller, just a satisfied customer.

Re: Trigger Job

I got 1 on a 700 it still never been adjusted from factory (glue still there) it is to heave for my liking. Do I have to adjust the sheer after adjusting the pull?

I'd look here:
Remington Trigger Adjustments

and here:
Adjusting the Remington 700 Trigger

and here:
How to Adjust a Remington 700 Trigger

There are plenty of sites that mention how to adjust the Rem 700's trigger:

Re: Trigger Job

I heard of one fella who did his own trigger job and much to his surprise the gun went off when in the safe mode, no one got hurt. Not saying you should use a competent smith but I'd be real careful and make sure you know what your doing. While it's not brain surgery it could be just a deadly if done improperly.

Re: Trigger Job

YA I have read about 30 difrent things on it. But still nervice about it dont know why. I rebiuld engines, auto and manual tranys and every thing els on cars trucks and semis. Been doing it for 28 years form I can see its all in the sheer engagement. My old 721 had that prob when you would take it off safe it would go off. Brought it in to a smith and did a triger job on it of corse didnt ask any thing then. I should go find a old 1 and take it apart and figure it out.
