Thread: Another dreadful trigger

  1. #1

    Another dreadful trigger

    You know this perplexes me if you read my previous thread about my 243.

    This one is about the trigger on my recently bought Mauser 107 - a 22lr bolt action which is I think a re-brand of a Voere.

    Bought cheaply, the trigger seemed dreadful: Miles of smooth creep and no weight at all. Very little information on the web but some notes on the Thames Valley Guns web site.

    After a fiddle I sussed it, the trigger is supposed to be 2 stage but had been adjusted to fire on the first stage. Back the nut off so stage 2 is used and it's now just right.

    But why oh why do people get into such a pickle? At least it gives me the satisfaction of sorting it out.

    Cheers,
    GH

    If you want a real challenge, buy a remington 597, the trigger is so bad you think the safety is on

    Ha
    I have had my fair share of poor triggers
    a Mauser target rifle with a similar two stage which as you describe then just became a hair trigger with loads of travel when adjusted

    A BRNO double set trigger which was either so hard it also felt like the safety was on as a single stage or so floppy you didnt know when it was going to break as a set trigger!

    Sorry guys, don't know what you're talking about. I've got Sakos
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not using it in a fruit salad.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they never get it wrong.

    Sorted now, good trigger and can get the bolt out.

    Sako? How could I justify spending more on a rifle than I do on a car?

    Well if you think carefully a rifle will outlast most modern cars. Plus you don't give a huge wedge of cash to the government buying a rifle unlike a new car.

    BTW my car is 16 years old .

    that's a good one, I shot my brother in-law's rem 700 a few days ago on a range in Texas. His trigger was similar and after 20 rounds my finger hurt. He wants it that way...
    I couldn't shoot a 5 shot group without a flyer.

    My favorite triggers are an 1909 2 stage Mauser that is perfectly tuned, my old Sako trigger and all T3 triggers I had seem very good.

    Got a BSA CF2 and it has the nicest factory trigger I've used.
    Just a plug for British Built.
