    Does anyone have a Sharp Shooter Supply competition trigger they would like to sell? This accu trigger is just not cutting it I want a trigger that is actually adjustable.

    Id' buy the accu trigger
    depending on price of course
    the best aftermarket is rifle basix Sav 2 trigger
    about 150.00 or so
    they adjust from 4 oz to 3 lbs

    I will be happy to sell the Accutrigger as soon as a get the new one. If i go with the SSS i'll sell the whole assembly but i think the rifle basix uses the stock sear and carriage so it will just be the trigger and springs.

    I want to buy your at and Im also recommending a RB Sav2 not to be confused with Rb Sav1

    SSS uses stock sear and hanger
    RB uses stock sear but comes with hanger
    RB is very adjustable
    comes with install cd
    just to be honest the Accu Trigger is also adjustable if your a tinkerer s I am
    and IMHO also safer design
    I can adjust the AT from 8 oz - 3lbs by modifying the springs and polishing the contact points
    I run all my AT at just over a pound seems to be best weight for accuracy -for me personally that is

    I thought about filing the spring but decided against it. The accu trigger is yours... does $50 shipped sound fair? I don't know what they are worth. I read a review about the rifle basix that said it would not work with the bolt release on the trigger guard is this so? I have a 111 LRH and it has the trigger guard bolt release.

    I don't think position of bolt release has any bearing on trigger choices
    a quick call to RB would confirm this
    if you want I'll walk you through the process to adjusting you At down to a lb
    just pm me if your interested in doing that
    I've owned all the best triggers, Jewel. Huber,RB ect ... and by far the Accu trigger is the best trigger Ive ever used
    not to mention the safest of all trigger designs
    you can have a 8oz trigger with a 1/4 inch of sear
    no one else does that
    the At is a 2 stage trigger design
    so even when set light
    you can still "feel" the trigger's 1st stage before reaching the" Light" 2nd stage
    I paid 30.00 for most of my AT 's I paid 10x that amount for some of the others
    that were lesser designs IMHO
    now all I own are savages & with the exception of one all wear AT's set at just over a pound
    one wears a 4 screw that is phenomenal

    there are several ways I do it
    but the easiest way is to bend the tip of the blade spring
    till it looks like the tip of the sear spring
    then put it in the rear -position - sear position-
    this can be done with 2 pair of small needle nose pliers
    or similar tools
    the bottom of the spring is smaller diameter- but it will work fine
    it will just ":sit " in the hole
    then take roughly 1/2 of a ink pen spring
    to replace the blade spring
    using just your fingernails
    "help ' the 1st 2-3 coils over the "hump" of the blade
    bend the tip of spring just like you did with the other one
    again - it will just "sit in the hole
    they are both "captured" by compression
    and will work flawlessly used in this manner
    and will be a pound or just over a pound
    another way is to use ink pen springs in both positions
    you can actually "thread ' the rear spring into existing threaded hole
    a much lighter pull can be achieved using this method
    I have had them down to 7-8 oz this way
    while still having the added safety feature of the almost 1/4 inch AT blade
    3rd and possibly best way
    is to find a Gunsmith who will order target or LE accu trigger springs for you
    then simply replaced them
    target springs will get you under a lb and LE springs will get you a LB
    even without sear work
    while the above mods work just fine without any further work
    polishing the stamped edges and polishing the sear & trigger contact surfaces
    with a ceramic stone will help any of the above
    but I do not recommend trying it unless you are certain of what is envolved
    and are quite confident you can do it
    if done incorrectly - if the trigger & sear if the angles are not kept correct- it can ruin them both
    as with all firearm repairs
    & especially trigger modifications -
    common sense demands you test it for function
    before actually loading live rounds to shoot
    I test by working bolt harder than I ever would normally
    then bump-slap- bounce the butt on floor pretty good
    if the trigger stays set
    then I would feel safe to use it
    I have modified several this way and have never had an issue
    with the mod itself
    however I did forget to re-install the E clip once
    and that will cause a slam fire
    that was my fault
    not a fault of the modification
    hope this helps
