Your rifle has a two stage 'military' trigger designed for safety and reliability. It requires that you practice with it to know it well. Its first 'stage' is simply a take-up stage and the second stage is the firing stage. You'll feel the trigger come to a definite firmness after you take-up the first stage and as you feel the firmness, you feel the trigger 'break', firing the rifle. To be as accurate as the rifle, you must learn the trigger and know when it will fire. It is simple and easy to learn but it does require practice. If you shoot for group size, trigger control is paramount. Your rifle will perform, but only as well as you are able to hold it.
