hey guys, i have an old ruger .270 M77 tang safety rifle. i took apart the action to adjust my over travel, creep, and trigger pull weight. and the previous owner had done some metal work to the sear/trigger engagement surfaces to make a crisper/lighter pull. well when i put it back together my trigger breaks like glass now (due to the adjustments i made to the screws) and it feels great, BUT idk what i did now. because before i took it apart i could de-cock the firing pin by pulling the bolt handle all the way up and pulling the trigger and then slowly let the bolt handle down and it would de-cock the firing pin. well now when i do that it does not de-cock the pin when the bolt goes down. and if i wanted to pull up on the bolt with the pin being cocked it releases the pin. with out me pulling the trigger.
