Mk I trigger upgrade
I have two BSA Int. (Mk1) rifles, one has the upgraded trigger and the other does not. The one with the externally adjustable trigger has a perfectly light and safe trigger, the other has the trigger group that is not upgraded, and I cannot get it adjusted to my satisfaction. If there a gunsmith out there who does trigger upgrades to the Mk I triggers to make them externally adjustable? I can swap the trigger group between the two rifles, but would prefer to upgrade the internally adjustable one. I would also be willing to buy a Mk I trigger with the upgrades.

I am not ABSOLUTELY certain if Mk. II trigger housing/assemblies can be swapped. I did see a Mk I housing on eBay just a bit ago. I have at least one Mk. I on sitting my back-burner, somewhere.

The best well know Martini gunsmith is Mark Cheseborough (sp?), who took over MT Guns.

MK 1 Trigger
Spelling for Mark is correct.

I recently asked him the same question and his response was if you would send him the complete rifle, he would do the conversion to MKII adjustable.

The original trigger was made for the old 3# rule, now long gone and not mourned by any smallbore shooter.

I have not yet sent my 1950 gun for this work, but have confidence he can do it. Mark said somehow the actions can act a bit differently when they are not in the receiver.

I have a MK I with the upgraded trigger and it will interchange with the BSA Int. Lightweight, but my Mk II trigger will NOT interchange with the Mk I. I will look into sending the rifle out for the upgrade.
Thanks for all the replies!
