Does anyone have experience with the rifle basix triggers. I need to replace the trigger in my savage stevens? How are they?
That stinks. Why didn't you send it back to Rifle Basix before spending money on a gunsmith rebuild?Just got through with this horrible rifle basix trigger setup. Purchased a "drop in" trigger for my Savage 110. I rebarelled it for .33 Nosler. First off, I work on rifles all the time, generally build my own for the most part. I could not get this triggers sear engagement to work, or set up the fine adjustments no matter what I did. Finally i brought it to a trusted gunsmith, and upon disassembly he found the the seer wasn't cut square, the safety engagement was way off, and no matter what he did, the trigger is kind of floppy. He had to recut the sear, recut the safety engagement, and essentially rework and polish every surface....it's 2.15 lbs now, but still kinda floppy. Garbage. I had to pay twice the triggers value for sub par performance....oh...and now, the bolt release isn't functioning. Note to self....from now on, Timney or nothing.
