Adjustable Double Set Triggers

The TCR'83 is equipped with adjustable double set triggers (see Photo "E "). As pictured, the front trigger is always the firing trigger while the rear trigger is the "set" trigger. When in its "set" position, the rear trigger will reduce letoff travel ("creep") in the front trigger and lighten trigger pull. Inasmuch as the "setting action" of the rear trigger considerably lightens the trigger pull required to fire the rifle, your complete concentration is required once the trigger is "set".

IMPROPER USE AND/OR IMPROPER ADJUSTMENT OF THE SET TRIGGERS CAN RESULT IN AN ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE WHICH CAN CAUSE INJURY AND/OR DEATH TO YOURSELF OR OTHERS.

Front trigger is the firing trigger. It is always used to fire the rifle.

Rear trigger is the "set" trigger

The set triggers on your TCR '83 will function either as "double set" or "single stage" In other words, you need not set the rear trigger to fire the rifle. The rifle will fire by simply releasing the safety and squeezing the front trigger in the conventional manner. Proper use of this set trigger option falls into the distinct categories of HOW and WHEN to use the device. WHEN TO USE THE SET TRIGGER OPTION —The set trigger on your TCR '83 is a luxury feature designed to lighten trigger pull and to improve marksmanship on those occasions when the rifle is being fired from a firm rest and at a stationary target. Learn to think of this set trigger option in the same manner as you think of the windshield wipers of your car. It is to be used only on those occasions when it is logical to do so! Surely you do not use your wipers in fair weather simply because they are part of the automobile. Equally you do not set the trigger on a sporting rifle every time you fire a shot. Use the set trigger option only when shooting from a firm rest and at a stationary target Set the trigger only when the muzzle of the rifle is on target and the instant before firing. Never set the trigger unless the safety is in its "on" position. Never allow the barrel of the rifle to leave its rest position once the trigger is set.

WHEN NOT TO USE THE SET TRIGGER OPTION -

The TCR'83 Rifle should never be carried with the trigger in "set'' position. For all hunting purposes, walking, sitting on a stand, while climbing and negotiating obstacles, the trigger should remain "unset" with the safety in its "on" position. If game is sighted and you decide to shoot, use the front trigger in the conventional (single stage) manner. Do not set the rear trigger for the trigger pull will be much too light for practical shooting when the hunter is excited and in the presence of game.
