lACCUTRIGGER ™ PujTAdjustment

SAFE OWNERSHIP IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. PRIOR TO ADJUSTING THE ACCUTRIGGER PLEASE THOROUGHLY READ AND UNDERSTAND THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL IN ITS ENTIRETY.

MAKE SURE THE FIREARM IS UNLOADED AND THE BOLT IS OPEN BEFORE REMOVING THE STOCK AND ADJUSTING THE ACCUTRIGGER™

REMOVING THE STOCK

BE SURE THE BOLT IS OPEN AND THERE IS NO LIVE AMMUNITION IN EITHER THE CHAMBER OR MAGAZINE.

THE ONLY TIME YOU CAN BE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN THAT A GUN CANNOT FIRE IS WHEN THE ACTION IS OPEN AND IT IS COMPLETELY EMPTY OF AMMUNITION.

THERE IS NO REASON TO REMOVE THE MAGAZINE ASSEMBLY FROM THE STOCK. PULLING ON THE 'FEEDING LIPS' OR SIDES OF THE MAGAZINE MAY DISTORT ITS OVERALL SHAPE AND RESULT IN AMMUNITION NOT LOADING OR FEEDING RELIABLY.

1. Turn the firearm upside down, with the muzzle pointed away from you.

2. Using a 5/32" Allen wrench, loosen and remove the two screws securing the stock. FIGURE 9 is for a TOP LOAD or DETACHABLE BOX MAGAZINE and FIGURE 10 shows the HINGED FLOOR PLATE.

3. Remove the stock.

4. Insert the ACCUTRIGGER TM supplied tool into the bottom of the trigger return spring as shown, to engage the spring-tail with the slot on the tool. Turn the trigger return spring (A) with the trigger adjustment tool (B) as shown in FIGURE 11 and FIGURE 12.

5. To adjust towards the higher range of pull, turn the tool clockwise. The maximum trigger pull is at the point where the spring "clicks" when rotated (see FIGURE 11).

6. To adjust towards the lower range of pull, turn the tool counter-clockwise. The minimum trigger pull is at the point where the large coil contacts the top surface of the trigger and you detect resistance (see FIGURE 12).

THE SPRING SHOULD NOT BE FORCED BEYOND THESE LIMITS.

7. The ACCURELEASE (see FIGURE 13 and FIGURE 14) adds an additional level by stopping the sear if the rifle is accidentally jarred or dropped with the safety in the "FIRE" position.

FOR HEAVY BARRELED FIREARMS, SAVAGE ARMS RECOMMENDS THE LOWER SETTINGS BE USED ONLY FOR CONTROLLED PRECISION SHOOTING DUE TO THE SENSITIVITY OF THE TRIGGER AND THE SEAR. WHEN SHIPPED FROM THE FACTORY AT THIS LOWER SETTING, EXCESSIVE JARRING OR PULLING THE TRIGGER WITHOUT DEPRESSING THE

ACCURELEASE MAY CAUSE THE SEAR TO MOVE (SEE FIGURE 14). AS DESIGNED, THE ACCURELEASE™ WILL PREVENT ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE BY 'LOCKING' THE TRIGGER WHEN USED PROPERLY, MAINTAINED AND SERVICED REGULARLY. IN THIS EVENT, THE BOLT MUST BE RE-COCKED IN ORDER TO RESET THE SEAR.

WHEN THE SEAR IS BLOCKED BY THE ACCURELEASE TM (SEE FIGURE 14), THE FIRING PIN IS RESTRAINED WITHIN THE BOLT ASSEMBLY, PREVENTING IT FROM HITTING THE PRIMER. THE 'CLICK' THAT IS HEARD IS THE ACTUAL SEAR BEING BLOCKED BY THE ACCURELEASE TM, NOT THE FIRING PIN!

DO NOT MOVE THE SAFETY FORWARD TO THE SAFETY OFF - READY TO FIRE POSITION UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.
