Thanks. I spent some time with the trigger diagram and see how to proceed. After adjusting, the most important part is whacking the action with a stick or soft-faced mallet to insure no accidental...

Well, I've got it at 3 lbs, which is fine, but it has a fair amount of creep: (which it also had at the original setting of 2 lbs) that I'd like to get rid of. Is there a usual procedure for ...
