Re: X mark pro trigger adjustment issue

I bought the 700 VTR with the X-Mark Pro. The trigger broke @ about 8 lbs. I adjusted it down to about 3 lbs. and it was great or so I thought. If you toggled the safety on and off, the gun would fire. Minimum safe weight was about 5 lbs. That whole incident kinda freaked me out, and rather than deal with a heavy trigger pull or unsafe trigger, I opted for a new one. I bought a Timney 1.5 - 4 lb trigger with safety and I couldn't ask for more.

I have a review of that rifle and trigger here: Remington model 700 VTR.

Good luck.

    Yeah, I got nervous wondering "is it really safe, even with the high pull weight?", so I bought a new trigger. Couldn't be more happy with the Timney.

    I hate my X-Mark pro trigger so much, I am certain it is one of the reasons my groups are not that good. So as soon as I can afford a timney I will have one in my sendero.
