I'am about to send my reciever back to be fitted with a 45/70 and 7mm-08 barrel. My question is before i ask to have the trigger pull reduced, what will they set it at ? Right now it's about 3 1/4 lb. Thanx.**************ogo
I asked for a trigger job on my BC frame when I sent it in for a 45-70 BC barrel, it was 3 lbs-15oz when I sent it in, it came back the same....I believe they won't touch it if it's already below 5lbs, those that I have sent in and they did a trigger job on were well in excess of 5lbs to begin with.
i guess i don't pay that much attention to my triggers..i just squeeze until it goes pop.....to me my trigger felt good....but not sure on the weight of it.....when people mention no creep and breaking clean..does that mean you don;t have to pull it a little bit with some resistance before the hammer falls? also someone told me that since marlin bought HandR all the new ultra rifles have a better marlin trigger in them..is this true??
The only thing that Marlin has to do with H&R/NEF is they own them!! The triggers in the Ultras are the same as those in the Handis....whoever told you that didn't know what they were talking about. Triggers have improved over the last year or so, in general, they used to be 5-7lbs or more sometimes, but apparently H&R/NEF has decided to lighten them a bit since they were getting a lot back with requests for free trigger jobs. Creep is the amount of movement of the trigger before it breaks, and breaking crisply is desireable for good trigger control, specially with the transfer bar safety.
