For a more accurate rifle, a lighter trigger spring is
the easiest starting point of all.
springs available on this website are divided, by weight of pull, into three general categories.
"Hunter", "Varmint" and "Target".
following is an approximate weight of pull available after installation of one of these springs.
"HUNTER", roughly 2½
to 3½ lbs. weight of pull. Gun to gun results will vary.
"VARMINT", roughly 1¾ to 2½ lbs.
weight of pull. Gun to gun results will vary.
"TARGET", roughly 1 ¼ to 2 lbs. weight of pull. Gun to gun results will vary.

trigger spring, and a "stress free" pillar bedding job are two of the most effective ways available to increase
If you want a lighter trigger pull,
you need a lighter trigger spring!
I have worked with gunsmiths in the past who, when
the subject turned to trigger springs, preferred to clip them, grind them, heat them, bend them, smash them, or simply back
out the weight of pull screw until there was no or almost no pressure on the spring. With any of these methods, you get
a spring whose rate is rapidly rising as the trigger is pulled. As the trigger is released, the spring rate rapidly
decreases as it approaches full or near-full extension. A more uniform weight of pull will be achieved when the trigger
spring is compressed within its normal working range throughout the entire movement of the trigger. Finally, we
all have access to rifle trigger springs that will lighten your rifle trigger pull without having to resort to any
of the above procedures. In the long run, the benefits of saved time, plus
more uniform and reliable results, will more than offset the cost of these springs. If you want a lighter trigger
pull, you need a lighter trigger spring.

ago, bench rest shooters controlled the ability of the trigger guard screws to do harm, by eliminating them completely.
With a hunting rifle however, we simply do not have this option. When a rifle might be used in almost any type of weather,
we must maintain the ability to disassemble this rifle for maintenance and cleaing.

on methods to eliminate the ability of the trigger guard screws to do harm, while at the same time, retaining their original
