    Styer Pro Hunter .308

    Made an impulse buy on a Styer Pro Hunter last night. Got home and realized the trigger and safety wheel were made of plastic! Anyone ever have any issues with these parts? Wondering if I should order replacements. Other than the plastic parts and a scratchy trigger pull, really like the little beast. Couldn't pass it up for the price.

    1. never had any issues with the trigger or the rolling safety,

    2. as far as I can recall the trigger is not plastic,

    3. scratchy trigger? always found that the trigger was fine, and the set trigger activated by pushing the trigger forward was so sweet I used it every time I took a deer or fox,

    Bob, the rifles with the set triggers have metal triggers. Mine is the carbine with the 20" barrel,no set trigger. It sure is plastic or nylon or something like that.

    Norma 308,
    I noticed that one side of the forearm is almost touching the barrel. I'm hoping it will be ok, as long as both side don't touch it should be ok, right?

    Thanks Norma, if it does not group well, I will give that a try.

    it will group for 3 shots then move as the barrels heat up pretty quickly ,never bothered me until park culling it was fine as I never did range work and took my rifle to work for zeroing doing just cold one shot tests .once I'd changed the stock to a varmint channel no problems at all .I've a 6.5 prohunter that isn't as bad as the 308 was but I'm waiting for a stock builder to rectify that ! hurry up chap
