    Trigger Warnings throughout the year...

    I can hear everyone now... What the H#ll is he talking about??? I'm talking about setting up your trigger in the heat of the summer, (80- 100 degrees) and then going out late fall or winter in much colder (0 - 20 degrees f) temperatures to find that the steel has contracted, causing your perfectly set 2 lb. trigger pull to be reduced down to Much less. Makes for a touchy trigger.

    If I have he trigger all set up can I adjust just the trigger dwell screw and not effect any other of the setting or do I have to adjust all the screws if I am going to adjust the dwell?

    Thanks

    gENTLEMEN,


    GREETINGS, THANKS FOR THE INTEREST IN THE ARTICLE. DWELL TIME HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TRIGGER WEIGHT, TEMPERATURES, OR SEAR ENGAGEMENT.

    IT HAS TO DO WITH "OVERTRAVEL" THE AMOUNT THE TRIGGER MOVES AFTER THE SEAR BREAKS. BY ADJUSTING THE OVERTRAVEL TO ITS MAXIMUM SETTING WE ELIMINATE THE ENERGY TRANSFER CAUSED BY FLINCHING.

    IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE WITH LONG RANGE SHOOTERS WHO HAVE A TENDENCY TO MASH THE TRIGGER IN ANTICIPATION OF RECOIL AND NOISE.


    HOPE THIS HELPS ALL OF OUR READERS WHO MAY BE CONFUSED ABOUT THE TOPIC.

    RESPECTFULLY,

    DARRELL HOLLAND
