Trigger Adjustment For The ThunderHawk®

The trigger of the ThunderHawk® is factory set for optimal weight of pull, sear engagement and over-travel. If further adjustment is required, the ThunderHawk® is equipped with two trigger adjustment screws that can be adjusted by the shooter. If the shooter is not able to make the appropriate adjustments the adjustments should be made by a qualified gunsmith.

In the diagram above, Screw #1 is used to adjust the sear engagement. Sear engagement adjustment refers to the distance the trigger has to be moved rearward to release the sear which in turn allows the striker to fall from the "Fire" position to the "Fired" position.

Screw #2 is used to adjust over-travel. Over-travel is described as the amount of rearward trigger movement after the trigger releases the striker.

The ThunderHawk® triggers are factory set to an optimal pull. Physical alteration of the trigger, or adjustments other than those described above with Screw "1" and Screw "2" may lead to a situation where a dangerously light trigger pull results. A TRIGGER PULL THAT IS TOO LIGHT CAN CAUSE PREMATURE FIRING WHICH MAY LEAD TO INJURY AND/OR DEATH TO THE SHOOTER OR BYSTANDERS AND DAMAGE TO PROPERTY.
