    howa trigger

    You must work with caution on this one, you can end up with the safety inoperative & also slamfires, one screw alters the creep, the other the pull weight, the rear screw is for creep, the front for break pull weight, if you are not sure what you are doing, get someone who has the ability to do it for you, 8)

    I just picked up my Howa 1500 on Friday and also thought the trigger was on the heavy side... Since I haven't even shot it yet I don't know whether to try and get it lightened now, or wait a while...

    I would have to have someone do the work for me as I wouldnt feel comfortable doing it myself...

    I adjusted mine and as said it was a bit dodgy! I got it set really light but it did affect the safety catch when set too light. I ended up shearing the side off a grub screw too just to make things worse! I ended up doubting whether it was safe so it had to go!
    I then bought a riflebasix one from south yorkshire shooting. Very pleased with it for 104. Easily fitted with just one screw too and transformed the rifle to be honest. I'll try and find a link.....

    If you get the WTHBY 1 it adjusts from 1.5-4 lbs but is factory set at about 2lbs which I found to be perfect for my needs.
    Best 104 I spent for a while.

    howa triggers

    Having played the caution card, It's not rocket science, if you have mechanical aptitude allied with common sense, you should not be put off from moving stuff about, just remember where & why it was when you started!

    My problem is that I always have bits left over or can't get things like springs to go back in - whenever I try servicing my fishing reels I always end up geting it wrong and have to take it to the local tackle shop!

    When it comes to firearms I think I'll skip the intermediate step and just get a pro to do it!

    Roedale Precision in Germany offers a trigger tuning service for the howa trigger 75,- Euros. Just stick the trigger unit in the mail.
    I had a trigger that he tuned to maybe 500 grams , was the best trigger I ever had.

    Before you fork out on an entirely new trigger mechanism, get a good riflesmith to have a look at it for you - Mike Norris (of Brock & Norris, nr Telford in Shropshire) does a fantastic tuning job on Howa triggers for around 45. Mind you, he tends towards pull weights measured in nanogrammes , so make sure you specify a field trigger weight rather than an benchrest one that goes off it you look at it a bit hard!

    Richard Pope (of Swift Custom Rifles, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire) is very good too.
