Very good advice .

Back when there were hardly any after market triggers we had to try and do something
with a poor trigger ourselves.

With luck we mad it better sometimes not much and other times we trashed them.

There is great difficulty in stoning the sear perfect by hand and if not done right you will ruin
it .Changing springs to lighten the pull can help but it won't make them break any smoother
just lighter.

If you are not experienced in trigger work I would recomend a good after market trigger for
the replacement.

No matter how much it cost , The safety margin is worth it. After spending lots of money
to make your rifle more accurate a good trigger will improve an already good shooter.

I am a do it your self person with experience in trigger work and I don't work on them any
more unless there is just not any after market triggers available.

Re: Trigger Job

Ya I gess You are right I going to bring them both in to my smith. have the safety lever changer on the 721. On the 700 triger job & make the bolt lock down when safety is on I like it that way then I can play with stocks safer that way. Just the mechanic in me how does it work

Re: Trigger Job

FYI for who staying tuned in here. Yes a 721 triger can be alterd to be just like a 700 makes finding a STK vary eazy now. 700 yes you can have the saftey alterd to lock down the bolt. it takes a few parts that are NOT sold any more the parts are in the 721 triger if it has NOT had the saftey mod. progam done on it and some milling work on the bolt. By the way there is a saftey recall comming down the pipe line on 700 trigers

Re: Trigger Job

Just do a google the bigest gun smith in the uper midwest. the smith told me him self. As far witch trigers (I think) X mark isnt every other one is all the way back to the 721 722. This is what I think there going to do make it a 3 postion it all has to do with AD accidntal discharge witch I think some one messing with sheer ingagement he didnt tell me exactly but the inpresion I got was if you want to get somthing done on them like I did you better get it done quick that is all I know
