Trigger Adjustment

Independent of whether there is a mounted set-trigger or not, the trigger mechanism can be adjusted with respect to the trigger pull weight, and the trigger travel, before and after discharge. The adjustment can be performed after taking the barreled action out of the stock by means of the setting screws A (trigger pull), B (trigger travel before) and C (trigger travel after discharge) - see Fig. 7.

If the CZ 550 rifle is fitted with a set-trigger, the adjustment of the set-trigger is carried out by the screw located in front of the trigger (Fig. 8). For safety reasons do not adjust the set-trigger travel as too short, as the rifle with an activated settrigger is very sensitive to shock, and during handling the rifle could unintentionally discharge. The safety of the set-trigger adjustment can be checked with the rifle unloaded by repeated opening and closing of the bolt combined with moving of the safety to its "ON" and "OFF" positions. The spontaneous release of the trigger must not occur.


There is a possibility of dismantling the set-trigger from the rifle, without any impairment to the functional properties or adjustment of the conventional trigger.
