Trigger adjustments Trigger weight

Adjust the trigger weight with set screw No. 10 (silver screw):

• if you turn it to the right: trigger weight is increased (+)

• if you turn it to the left: trigger weight is decreased (-)

Trigger weight and first stage weight depend on each other with regard to the mechanic mechanism. If one of them is changed there will always be a corresponding change of the other as well.

To move trigger cam No. 11:

• lowest position of the trigger cam: lowest trigger weight

• highest position of the trigger cam: highest trigger weight

If the trigger weight is to be more than 200 g, the trigger cam No. 11 must be adjusted to the highest position (turn it by 180° and fix it then). To do this you need a 2 mm hex key and perhaps tweezers.

• if you turn it to the left: You release the screw

• if you turn it to the right: You tighten the screw

A Attention:

Please ensure the trigger cam is positioned correctly. Be very careful tightening the small cam screw as it is easily broken! Please check the sear engagement according to paragraph No. 3 when you have finished this process. It might have to be adjusted as well. The precise adjustments of the trigger weight and first stage weight are carried out with the set screws No. 10 (trigger weight) and No.9 (first stage weight).

2. First stage weight (only for two-stage triggers)

Adjust first stage weight with set screw No. 9 (black screw):

first stage weight is increased (+)

first stage weight is decreased (-)

Trigger weight and first stage weight depend on each other with regard to the mechanic mechanism. If one of them is changed there will always be a corresponding change of the other as well.

A Attention:

Do not reduce either trigger weight screw to zero or lower as the trigger pull may become erratic.

3. Sear engagement

The sear engagement is the distance between the second stage and the release of the trigger.

Important note:

To protect your precise trigger and to guarantee perfect operation you should always close the action carefully. If the sear engagement of single stage triggers is too small and the trigger weight is too low or if the first stage of two-stage triggers is too short, the trigger might release inadvertently by a sudden impact or too powerful closing of the action if the rifle is loaded and not in the "safe" position.

Adjustment of the sear engagement for two-stage triggers with set screw No. 5:

sear engagement is shortened

sear engagement is extended

Adjustment of an optimum sear engagement:

Make sure your rifle is not loaded. Cock your rifle and release the trigger. Check if the trigger releases as desired.

The sear engagement is too long: There is a small distance between the second stage and the release of the trigger.

•Turn set screw No. 5 clockwise after cocking and releasing (approximately 1/8 turn each). •Repeat this process until you do not feel the second stage anymore. Then turn 1/5 turn back to the left. Thus the optimum sear engagement is adjusted.

The sear engagement is too short: There is no second stage. The trigger releases un-defined without second stage.

•Turn set screw No. 5 counter-clockwise for at least 1/4 turn after cocking. Then release the trigger and check if there is a second stage. If not, repeat this procedure until you feel a second stage. •As soon as you feel a second stage proceed according to the points of the paragraph „The sear engagement is too long" to obtain an optimum sear engagement.

For the adjustment of the sear engagement for single stage triggers with set screw No. 5 see point 7:

4. First stage (only for two-stage triggers):

The single stage is the distance between the trigger blade from zero position to the second stage.
